Coronavirus (COVID -19)
Stay at home if you have the coronavirus symptoms:
The Symptoms are:-
1. A high temperature - you feel hot to touch on your chest or back.
2. A new, continuous cough - this means you've started coughing repeatedly.
3. Change in normal sense of taste or smell.
Please only enter the Practice if you have a booked appointment. All enquiries and prescription requests must be by telephone.
From June 1st, please follow the following advice:
If you are feeling well but have symptoms that are suggestive of COVID-19 then please arrange a test through NHS-Inform and self-isolate as appropriate. Routine GP involvement is not required unless you begin to feel unwell or have a negative covid test and need an assessment of your illness.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms and are feeling unwell and need some form of clinical assessment, then you will be assessed by the surgery, by phone in the first instance and then face to face if necessary. Ideally it would be beneficial to have a covid test arranged prior to this, although we do understand that this is not always possible.
Phone calls made to NHS 24 will now be fed back to the practice and we will be made aware of any patient that is requiring and assessment. NHS 24 will also ask the patient to contact their practice directly for assessment.
All adults in Scotland should now have received their first COVID-19 vaccine appointment. If not then please register here to receive your appointment by text or email. You can also call 0800 030 8013.
NHS Fife is now operating drop-in coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination clinics from Monday (July 5) as the programme nears completion of first doses for all adults in Scotland.
Drop-in clinics will be operational at a variety of places and this will be supplemented by mobile vaccination units run by the Scottish Ambulance Service that will visit busy areas. A full list of drop-in clinics and mobile unit location, dates and times are available at www.nhsinform.scot/vaccinedropinclinics.
Please DO NOT hand in your repeat prescription to early as we will not be able to process it. Please only order when you need to. Thank you.
During this time we are asking everyone that visits the surgery for an appointment to wear a face covering. This INCLUDES non-medical masks and scarves.
