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.

Admin staff are here to help you between the hours of 8.00am and 6.00pm.  Their job is to liaise between you and the doctor.  It is an extremely demanding job so please be patient.
