Monday 18th April COVID-19 Government Guidance Update

As face covering guidance in wider public settings within Scotland gradually stands down, certain settings remain where the extended use of facemasks and/or face coverings will still be necessary.

In settings such as hospitals, primary care and within wider community care, the wearing and the extended use of facemasks and/or face coverings will still be required for healthcare workers, patients and patient visitors.

This is due to these settings hosting more clinically vulnerable individuals, for whom COVID-19 infection still poses a greater risk.

We continue to provide a safe environment for our patients and health care workers attending the practice, to follow the Scottish Government Guidance and help protect those most vulnerable.

Thank you for your continued cooperation.

GPs during COVID


The Practice carries out multiple face to face appointments every day.

We triage every telephone call before a face to face appointment is offered to ensure it is appropriate.

This allows the GPs to treat more patients daily than pre-COVID times.

Our appointment booking system has changed- You will receive a call back from a GP on the same day you call.  If you need a face to face examination the GP will arrange a suitable time for this to be done- usually on the same day

If you have a health concern of any kind that requires you to speak to a GP please call the practice any time between 8am and 3pm. We will deal with urgent calls only from 3pm until 5pm. You will have to provide the administration team with the details of your health concern to ensure you speak to the appropriate person. You will receive a call back from either a GP, Pharmacist or Advanced Nurse Practitioner.  This call may result in a video consultation which will mean you need access to the internet or a mobile phone.  (alternative arrangements can be arranged if you do NOT have access)

Please make sure you answer the call as we cannot continue to retry due to the volumes of calls
