Coronavirus

DO NOT ATTEND YOUR GP SURGERY. PLEASE SEND AN eCONSULT or TELEPHONE FIRST.

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. You will be asked certain questions by staff to reduce the risk of transmission.

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 medically exempt);
PHYSICAL DISTANCING:
1 metre if no covid or respiratory symptoms;
2 metres if covid or respiratory symptoms;

Contact your practice by econsult/telephone in the first instance;
Wearing of PPE by staff;
Screening of all patients for Covid 19 and Respiratory symptoms;
Undertake a PCR test if requested (not a Lateral Flow test);

You may be asked to use a different entrance/exit, and wait in your car or outside, until the clinician is ready to see you.
Please support our practice team by complying with this guidance. We are doing our best to ensure everyone’s safety during these challenging times.

By asking a few simple questions, a GP receptionist can help identify which member of the practice team is best for your needs. Patients do not always need to see a Doctor as we have Advanced Nurse Practitioners, a Mental Health Nurse, Pharmacist and a Community Link Worker all attached to the practice.

This video explains the role of the receptionist and highlights the wider healthcare team: https://youtu.be/lsYgGXCFiRI.
