CHANGE TO SURGERY SERVICE 

  

Due to the ongoing outbreak we are putting in place a series of measures to keep all our patients and staff as safe as we possibly can:

 

- For the foreseeable future, open surgery will be suspended and all patients will be required to call the surgery on: 01620 842171 and be triaged by phone by GP. Practice Nurse appointments will also be triaged and called accordingly. You will be asked for a summary of your symptoms and if you have been in direct contact with a person who has tested positive for Coronavirus. The GP will contact you by return phone call and if deemed safe and necessary then you may be given an appointment.

 

- If you have any concerns regarding hospital appointments or travel please visit www.nhsinform.scot and/or www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk. 

We would like to thank all our patients for their understanding and ask if you could share this information as widely as possible.
