Coronavirus (COVID-19)

ALERT – do not attend the surgery unless specifically requested.

COVID VACCINE UPDATE – AS AT 1 FEBRUARY 2021 – we were contracted by NHS Lanarkshire to vaccinate our patients aged 80 or over by the 5 Feb.  Well over 400 patients attended our clinics last week for their first dose of the Oxford/AZ covid vaccine.  Our patients aged over 80 who are housebound have been vaccinated by our community colleagues.  The patients that we phoned but who didn’t answer or who didn’t call us back will have to attend one of the mass vaccination clinics as we will not be organising any more clinics within the practice.  The vaccination helpline number is 0800 030 8013.  Please don’t phone the practice about these clinics as we won’t be able to answer your questions.

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.

Because of the circumstances caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, for other routine appointments we make 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.
