Latest News

Our staff are here to help you 

 

Despite what you may hear or read, we have been open throughout the pandemic, seeing patients face to face and over the telephone depending on need and determined by our GPs. 

 

We have seen an increase in challenging behaviour from some, directed towards staff.  This is not acceptable and very upsetting.   

 

Please be kind.  It matters.


Updated guidance on fit notes

 

See our "Been off work" section under "Appointments" for latest information on fit note provision.

 

Covid Vaccine Exemption

 

GPs and their teams cannot issue vaccine exemption certificates.  Please find information on Scottish Government and NHS Inform websites, or telephone the free NHS Covid Helpline on 0808 196 8565.

Scams - be vigilant

There have been instances where (what we would assume to be) private companies have contacted patients and given the impression that they have NHS permission to do so. In fact they have hoped to sell some sort of medical equipment to you. 

Permission has not been obtained from the practice and we have not released your medical information.

Please be vigilant and absolutely sure who you are speaking to before divulging information about yourself. You should of course contact the police if you feel at all threatened and if you keep us updated, we will happily liaise with the Board in the hope that we can protect others from scammers.
