GP/PN Appointments - June 22 Update
We still have reduced capacity for GP appointments presently - this is due to GP sickness absence/phased return. We are very fortunate to have a few GP locum sessions booked to assist.
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.
Please refer to our Care Navigation Leaflet in 'Latest News' as a different healthcare provider may be able to assist.
Practice Nurse appointments - we currently have no Practice Nurse appointments in June - we do, however, have increased Care & Treatment Service appointments (blood tests, BP monitoring, wound care including dressings) and the GPs will be covering urgent 'nurse' appointments for injections / smears - these are very limited and will only be booked for patients who require urgent access. We will have some PN locum appointments at the start of July to assist with demand also.
Should you have any queries regarding what can / cannot be booked with regards to nurse appointments - please contact Reception on 01738 828294.
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.
