TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 panademic the Practice has a plan in place to ensure that we have capacity to deal with patient demand.
We will be running the Practice on a day-to-day basis and if you require medical advice, you should contact Reception by telephone and your call will be directed appropriately. A GP. nurse or in house physiotherapist may call you back. Our reception team may signpost to another health care professional outwith the GP surgery.
If the clinician feels that you should attend the practice there will organise a face to face appointment for you. To protect you and our staff we have organised timed appointments to limit the volume of people in the building at any one time.
Please attend on time - not early for your appointment, come alone you MUST wear a face covering if possible unless medically exempt. PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT YOU MAY, AT TIMES, HAVE TO WAIT OUTSIDE THE SURGERY BUILDING, THEREFORE PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE DRESSED APPROPRIATELY FOR THE WEATHER CONDITIONS.
The GP may ask you to send a photographic image via email. The email address that this should be sent to is Clinical.email@example.com
Please only send correspondence to this email address if requested by a Clinician. Any unsolicited emails will be deleted without being read.
We would like to thank you for your understanding and co-operation during this time.
