We are still providing medical care for patients with non coronavirus symptoms. Please contact us if you have symptoms you are concerned about and in particular if you have symptoms which could be the first sign of cancer. It is important these symptoms are discussed and investigated promptly if necessary.


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.
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.

The following rules still apply in General Practice:

• wearing of face coverings by patients and the public (unless you are exempt)
• physical distancing of 2 metres in waiting rooms
• contact your practice by telephone in the first instance
• wearing of PPE by staff
• screening of all patients for Covid 19 symptoms

Please support your local practice team -  IPC poster.pdf


Please note that prescriptions are taking 48 hrs to process and a further 48 hrs for the pharmacists to dispense.
