Alert

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

ALERT – do not attend the surgery unless specifically requested.

COVID VACCINE UPDATE – AS AT 19 APRIL 2021 – we were contracted by NHS Lanarkshire to vaccinate our ambulatory patients aged 80 or over.  Over 400 patients have attended the practice for both their first and second doses of the Oxford/AZ covid vaccine.  Our patients aged over 80 who are housebound were vaccinated by our community colleagues.  We will not be organising any more clinics within the practice.  If you haven’t had your vaccination and now would like it the vaccination helpline number is 0800 030 8013

Our GP practice will not be vaccinating any of the other priority groups as detailed by the Scottish Government.  Patients in the priority groups will be sent appointment times and venues by NHS Scotland in due course.  If you think that you have been missed please follow this link https://www.nhsinform.scot/covid-19-vaccine/invitations-and-appointments/missing-appointment-details

PROOF OF COVID-19 VACCINATION

Please do not contact your GP practice to ask for a covid-19 vaccination passport or status certificate – we will not be able to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed.

The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel, once it is safe to do so. They are working with the other UK nations and the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future covid-19 certification requirements for international travel. As part of this, Scottish Government is developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their covid-19 vaccination status directly.

APPOINTMENTS

All routine appointments are to be made by telephone bookings only.  If you feel severely ill and need to speak to a GP today please phone the practice.  Admin staff will ask you questions as to your symptoms.  Please tell them what they need to know so that they can pass the information on to the doctors.  If the doctor needs to see you face-to-face they will ask you to come to the surgery.  Any and all information that you give to non-clinical staff is treated with the utmost confidentiality.

NHS Lanarkshire’s Choose Well, Keep Well guide offers a range of services that local healthcare professionals across Lanarkshire can provide. You can go directly to the right healthcare professional for the help you need when you need it, without having to see your GP first or face a lengthy wait in A&E.
