 PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY – ALL ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS ARE SUSPENDED AND ALL PATIENTS WILL BE TRIAGED (TELEPHONED) IF NECESSARY BY THE GP.

If you telephone the surgery looking for an appointment, please note that you will be asked a number of questions by our trained administrative team. This is to allow us to prioritise patients on a clinical need.  You will be offered a routine telephone consultation with one of the clinicians in the practice. If the clinician feels you need to be seen face to face, they will arrange a suitable time for you to attend the surgery, however please make a note of the following guidelines for a face to face appointment: 

– Please bring a face covering with you for use. If you do not have one, we will provide you with one. Upon arrive, you will be asked to sanitise your hands

– Attend the surgery alone- do not bring any members of your family, including children, unless agreed between you and the clinician

– You will be given a telephone number to call prior to entering the building to inform staff of your arrive

– Do not arrive early: 5 minutes before your appointment time is the most appropriate, otherwise you will be asked to leave the practice and building

– Your appointment time is limited and will only deal with the urgent issue you have. Please make other arrangements if you wish to discuss other matters

 

SEASONAL FLU VACCINATIONS 

We have been advised that the seasonal flu vaccination campaign is being managed centrally this year, by the NHS Lanarkshire health board. As such, the surgery will not be offering flu clinics or appointments for injections. All eligible patients will be contacted by the health board directly and an appointment will be arranged for you to attend one of the designated clinics within your area. At the moment, the vaccination campaign is not expected to commence until late September 2020. 

Please keep an eye on your local media outlets for further information and guidance.
