** GP Appointments: wk 16.05.22 **
Due to unforeseen sickness and COVID absence this week - our capacity of GP appointments has been significantly reduced. We are very fortunate to have 2 locums covering a day each this week, however, the overall capacity is still very low on certain days.
You may be asked by Reception Staff if your appointment request is urgent - this is to ensure that all patients needing urgent medical attention via a GP are seen on the day.
You may be able to access advice for your ailment via another healthcare professional - your local pharmacy may be able to assist, please give them a call. For any eye / sight / hearing issues - your local optician may be able to assist. For any tooth / mouth ailments - please contact your Dentist.
If you wish access to physiotherapy (face to face or a telephone consultation) - please call the Reception and ask for an appointment with First Contact Physio.
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.
