Why are GP Practices still working differently?  - See the poster under Further Information, Posters - Information & Events 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are aware that there is a new NHS App - "NHS Digital" - this app is only for NHS England and does not apply in the rest of the UK.  As far as we know there are no non-clinical data sharing policies currently being discussed in Scotland.

The Covid-19 Vaccination Status Scheme is now live and will allow those who have been vaccinated to request proof of vaccine. Only those planning to travel to a country or territory where a record of vaccination status is needed as an entry requirement should download the record or request it.  Please visit the Further Information section, Coronavirus Vaccination for further information.

Please do not attend the surgery to make an appointment, our doors are locked and only patients with pre-booked appointments are allowed access.

From Friday 10th July 2020 we are encouraging all patients who are attending the surgery to wear a face mask/face covering.

 

Coronavirus Vaccination

Please do not contact the Practice regarding Covid vaccination, we will be contacting patients to invite them to an appointment for vaccination when they are in the eligible group to receive the vaccine. 

If you have been invited and have your appointment arranged, please attend the Practice on your appointed date and time, please do not arrive early for your appointment and please wear a face covering. 

Please do not come to the Practice if you have any of the symptoms of persistent cough, fever, loss of taste or smell.

ADVICE AFTER COVID VACCINATION

COVID-19 VACCINATION STATUS SCHEME

This will provide confirmation of vaccination when required for foreign travel.

·       You will be able access your Covid-19 Vaccine Status online, by logging on to www.nhsinform.scot/covid19status.

·         If you have have lost or forgotten your username or password you will be able to create new ones by selecting 'forgot username' or 'forgot password' options.

·         A Freephone Covid Status Helpline will allow you to get the record posted to you.  You can contact the Helpline on 0808 196 8565.

·         The Scottish Government continues to urge a highly cautious approach to international travel, given the risk of new variants. The four UK Chief Medical Officers have said that green-list status should be the exception, rather than the rule, with countries added to the list only where there are very good reasons for doing so.

 

 If you are intending to travel abroad you should:

·         check the entry requirements for your destination country on the UK foreign travel advice pages

·         get up-to-date information from the website of your destination country

·         check the re-entry requirements for your return to Scotland

·         only request a vaccination record if it is absolutely required and you are due to travel in the next 21 days
