Facemask Exemption Information for Travel
Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for face covering exemption letters as this is not something that your GP can provide.
As per Scottish Government guidelines exemption certifications are not required, however, should you need this for travel purposes for any Airline you can request a free face covering exemption card by phoning 0800 121 6240 or through the NHS Scotland exemption card website.

Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate – they will not be able to provide any standard document.
International certification standards have not yet been agreed.
The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. We are working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel.

APPOINTMENT CHANGES FROM JULY 2021
Under our current appointment system, we are all aware that patients are struggling to get to speak to the doctor within a reasonable time. This has been unfortunately unavoidable due to Covid, GP illness and unprecedented demand.
In an effort to improve your access to appropriate medical advice, we will be changing our appointment system from the beginning of July.
Patients needing medical advice should phone any day between 8.30am-11.00am, Monday to Friday. You will be asked by our Reception Team to give a brief idea of what the problem is and then the appropriate clinician will call you back. For this new system to be successful we will not be able to offer pre-bookable doctors appointments.
Please remember that your problem may be dealt with by our experienced
Multi Disciplinary Team (MDT) which include:-
We hope by making these changes you will be assessed quicker and seen by the appropriate person.
We thank you for your patience and understanding
Risk of COVID – 19
We would like to remind patients that while lateral Flow Tests can pick up asymptomatic Covid 19 as a screening test they must not be used when symptoms are present.
If you have a new cough, temperature or loss of taste or smell you must isolate with household members and arrange a PCR Test at an NHS Testing Centre. Lateral Flow Tests are not accurate enough to be used in this situation.
If you are phoning about COVID vaccine or flu vaccine - you will be contacted when you are eligible.
From Monday 06/07/2020 we would ask that all patients attending th Practice wear a face mask or alternative face covering.
