Due to the current pandemic situation we are still requesting that ALL patients contact the practice by telephone first. Please do not enter the health centre without a pre-arranged appointment.
This will enable us to limit the spread of infection within the practice, ensure the most vulnerable patients are protected and also help keep GPs and staff safe.
If you experience any of the following symptoms you should SELF ISOLATE for 10 days and organise a test.
Your household members should also isolate for 14 days or until your test result is confirmed negative, or until they develop symptoms and arrange their own test.
If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home or they significantly worsen please call NHS24 on 111 to speak to an advisor.
COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT CENTRE
If you speak to a clinician at NHS24 they may feel your symptoms require you to be examined. In this case, an appointment will be arranged for you quickly at a local Community Assessment Centre, which are set up to ensure maximum safety and infection control. Please note: the assessment centres are NOT testing centres.
|Please do not attend the GP practice, hospital or pharmacy if you have any potential Covid-19 symptoms.|
GP, NURSE OR PHYSIO APPOINTMENTS
If you require an appointment for any other reason: PLEASE TELEPHONE 0141 531 6490
Where appropriate, the clinician will call you back and try to deal with your problem over the phone. If you require examination they will arrange an appointment for you at a specified time. This will allow us to reduce contact with other unwell patients in the waiting room. Even if you do not have active COVID symptoms, the GP or nurse will see you in full personal protective equipment for both your safety and theirs.
