In order to prioritize essential and emergency work we have had to make changes at the surgery. Please be assured we are seeing all patients who need to see a doctor. You will be offered a telephone consultation with the doctor  first.  DO NOT come to the surgery unless you have been advised to by a member of our practice staff.


Should I be going to hospital if I feel unwell?

As always – if you have a critical medical emergency, phone 999.

If it’s not an emergency;


:-If you have mild symptoms or are looking for information

Please visit www.nhsinform.scot/coronavirus. If you can’t find the answer please call the special helpline on 0800 028 2816


:-If you have COVID-19 symptoms:

If you need more advice than is available online at NHS Inform, call NHS 24 on 111.


:- For all other health matters:

Call your GP. You should only call NHS 24 if your GP is closed and you cannot wait until they reopen.


What should I speak to my GP about?

Your GP remains there to help you with any medical condition or concern you have, that isn’t COVID-19 related.

If you wish to speak to someone about a non-COVID-19 medical concern then phone your GP. If your GP surgery is closed for the day and your concern cannot wait, you can still call NHS 24 on 111.

If you are speaking to your GP about a non-COVID-19 issue but think you might also have COVID-19 please let your GP know and don’t go to your practice.

Please remember that all medical services are extremely busy at this time – it may be possible for you to self-medicate – see NHS inform for more info.


Phone the coronavirus helpline (0800 028 2816) if you can’t access the test form online or need help to complete it.
