Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

We continue with the changes in line with Scottish Government recommendations to manage the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our priority is to keep you safe, therefore you will notice changes to your usual service.

New NHS24 arrangements for Coronavirus

Patients with coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms are now asked to dial NHS 24 on 111, day or night, if their symptoms worsen or do not improve after seven days.

This improvement provides patients with a straightforward dedicated route to clinical advice and support, as well as freeing up the GP practice to treat and care for all non-COVID-19 health conditions.

Callers to the 111 helpline will be assessed and, if necessary, transferred to a local community hub staffed by clinicians from across the healthcare system to ensure patients get the best possible advice at the right time, depending on their assessment, patients may be given advice to help them continue self-isolating at home or be given an appointment to attend a local assessment centre for further treatment.

Sick Lines (Fit Notes)

The DWP website https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-employers-and-businesses-about-covid-19 provides guidance to employees and employers.

If you require a sick note due to coronavirus, you can get this from the NHS Inform website - https://www.nhsinform.scot/

Medical Concerns

For patients who do NOT have any coronavirus symptoms, please continue to telephone the health centre between the hours of 8:00am - 6:00pm, Monday to Friday for medical concerns.

In the out of hours period, when displaying symptoms OTHER THAN coronavirus, call 111 if you need urgent assessment and cannot wait until the health centre opens.
