We would like to thank you for your understanding over the last few weeks as the GP’s and staff struggle to deal with an overwhelming amount of health and medication queries. Please use www.nhsinform.scot as much as possible and please only order medication if you are genuinely running out in the next 2 weeks. DO NOT order extra or stock up. Any requests not due in less than 2 weeks will NOT be processed. The surgery and all of our local pharmacies are working very hard to manage the increased demand whilst still trying to maintain a safe environment that will allow us to continue to operate in the weeks ahead.

We are also now sending all prescription requests straight to a nominated pharmacy so please tell us which pharmacy you use when requesting any medication. You will then be able to go straight to the pharmacy to collect any items rather than having to come to the surgery.

It is very important that we reduce footfall into the surgery under the current circumstances to ensure we can strive to maintain a safe environment that we can continue to use with healthy staff as this pandemic develops. Unless you have a booked appointment or have been asked to come to the surgery by a GP, please DO NOT come to the surgery. If you are asked to attend the surgery please wear a face covering/mask if you have one.  Always TELEPHONE the surgery on 01360 327300 or call NHS24 on 111 for advice first.

Current guidance Test and Protect, Scotland’s approach to implementing  the “test, trace, isolate, support strategy”, is a public health measure designed to break chains of transmission of COVID-19 in the community.

As part of this you will be asked to self-isolate at home for 7 days if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or if you have tested positive for it. If you live with someone who has symptoms or has tested positive, or if you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive, you will be asked to self-isolate at home for 14 days.

Coronavirus starts with a high temperature or fever, dry cough and is followed by shortness of breath and loss of taste/smell. More information about the virus is available on the NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scot/illnesses-and-conditions/infections-and-poisoning/coronavirus-covid-19

If you develop any of these symptoms, contact the NHS to arrange to be tested.  Do this online at www.nhsinform.scot or call 0800 028 2816. You should self-isolate at home straight away with other members of your household.
