Noticeboard

COVID19

Please do not call the surgery if you have a general query regarding the COVID-19 vaccine.  Instead please look on the NHS Inform Website or use the national helpline 0800 030 8013 which is open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.

Vaccine roll out to the general public, based on age and underlying health conditions, will start as soon as possible, and will depend on vaccine supply.  This is likely to start in the New Year so please look out for a letter and a leaflet arriving in the post which will invite you to make an appointment for your vaccine.

The first group to receive this will be the over 80’s.  Please avoid calling with any queries about the vaccine or when you will be vaccinated as we are unable to give you any more information at this stage and we need to try to keep the phone lines open for people who are unwell and in need of medical care.

Many thanks for your ongoing patience and cooperation

 

If you have a new cough, fever, loss of taste/smell or are awaiting results of a COVID test, please DO NOT ATTEND the surgery. We are currently operating a telephone triage and if you need to be seen the GP will arrange this. Please wear a face covering if you attend the practice.

 

ALL PRESCRIPTIONS SHOULD BE COLLECTED FROM A NOMINATED CHEMIST, NOT THE SURGERY.


 

From 1st May 2019, the Practice will be closed for staff training on the 1st Wednesday of each month, between 11.45am - 1.15pm. If you need a doctor urgently during this time, please call 9429494 and select option 1.

 

When We Are Closedtelephone_brown

Emergencies ocurring outwith surgery hours are dealt with by NHS24 on 111. The surgery is closed between 18:00 - 08:00 Monday - Friday and from Friday 18:00 until Monday 08:00.

To obtain medical advice during these times, please call 111 and your call will be answered by a receptionist in the emergency centre. She will either:

  • arrange for you to receive advice from a doctor
  • invite you to attend a centre at one of the local hospitals (usually Drumchapel)
  • if you are too ill to attend, are housebound or very elderly, a home visit will be arranged. Transport to and from the centre is available if you cannot arrange this yourself.

In common with all other practices in the area, we are not contracted to provide emergency services during the out of hours period. The provision of these services is the responsibility of the GGNHSB.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
