Your Health in Safe Hands
The team are here to provide all patients with a professional and caring healthcare experience in friendly and personal surroundings. With discretion and confidentiality guaranteed your welfare is safe, secure and in good hands.
Medical Centre Grounds - Important
Unfortunately, the Medical Centre has sustained damage due to children playing on the grounds.
We do appreciate that there are not a lot of areas where children can play in Stanley, however, the Medical Grounds should not be used for this purpose.
We would ask that parents / guardians remind children that they cannot use the grounds for recreation (i.e. cycling / football). There are also a number of areas on the grounds which would be unsafe for children to do so.
Going forward, we will be checking CCTV footage should any further damage occur.
Notice from the Scottish Government (December 2021)
The Scottish Government requires General Practice and other healthcare settings to have different infection control and physical distancing guidance to other places such as hospitality and shops.
This is to help reduce the risk to practice staff and to people attending the practice who may be at greater risk if they catch Covid-19 or a Respiratory Infection.
The following rules still apply in General Practice:
- wearing of face coverings by patients and the public (unless you are exempt)
- physical distancing
- 1 metre if no Covid or respiratory symptoms
- 2 metres if Covid or respiratory symptoms
- contact your practice by telephone in the first instance
- wearing of PPE by staff
- screening of all patients for Covid 19 and Respiratory symptoms
Please support your local practice team by complying with this guidance.
