COVID 19 INFORMATION

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Due to the current pandemic the practice is now operating a phone triage service only.  We are triaging for emergencies only.  If you feel you need to speak with a doctor regarding a non-covid related problem, you will be offered a telephone appointment. 

Please do not attend the surgery.

 

If you have any coronavirus symptoms please self isolate according to the up to date advice on the NHS inform website at:

https://www.nhsinform.scot/illnesses-and-conditions/infections-and-poisoning/coronavirus-covid-19      

 

If you don't have symptoms and are looking for general information on coronavirus, call NHS Inform’s free helpline: 0800 028 2816

 

 

If you have symptoms of COVID-19

If you’ve developed a new continuous cough and/or a fever/high temperature in the last 7 days, stay at home for 7 days from the start of your symptoms even if you think your symptoms are mild. Do not go to your GP, pharmacy or hospital.

 

You should phone 111 only if:

  • your symptoms worsen during home isolation, especially if you’re in a high or extremely high risk group
  • breathlessness develops or worsens, particularly if you’re in a high or extremely high risk group
  • your symptoms haven’t improved in 7 days
  • you develop symptoms AND have received a letter from the practice or the government because you are in the extremely high risk group

If you have a medical emergency, phone 999 and tell them you have COVID-19 symptoms.
