CORONAVIRUS - COVID 19

It has been announced by the Scottish Government, anyone developing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, however mild should self-isolate for 7 days.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of:

  • new continuous cough and/or
  • high temperature
  • Loss of, or change in sense of taste/smell

Note: A new, continuous cough means coughing for longer than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours. If you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual.

Family contacts should self isolate for 10 days.

Information for the public on COVID-19, including stay at home advice for people who are self-isolating, physical distancing, test and protect can be found on NHS Inform.

If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days then patients should  phone the Practice or NHS24 (111).

The Practice has sent text messages to advice patients not to attend the Practice if they have or develop any of the symptoms of COVID 19.  PLEASE ensure that the Practice has your current mobile number so that you receive all texts which will contain important and updated information.

In an effort to reduce the spread of the virus, especially to those vulnerable to it, all requests for an appointment with the GP or nurse will be triaged by a clinician.  If the GP/nurse decides that you need to come to the Practice, the appointment will be given for the day you are triaged.

We will continue to provide essential services to our patients but may need to restrict some services eg routine annual review of diabetes, heart disease and other chronic diseases.  Please note that if you have any problems in relation to eg your diabetes, please call the Practice for advice.  We will keep patients informed on changes to this by text and via the website.

Please do not order your repeat medication early as the Practice will not issue any medications until they are due.  Additionally, we will only issue prescriptions to pharmacies so please ensure you let the Practice know which Pharmacy you will be using.

We thank all our patients for their cooperation.
