Welcome to the Green Practice

COVID-19 VACCINE:

We have now FINISHED vaccinating our eligible groups with their second dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine. This included patients aged 75+ as well as those who received shielding letters from the government.

All other patients* should receive a letter from the health-board with an appointment to attend a mass vaccination centre for their first dose - e.g. Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Pennywell All Care Centre or Royal Highland Centre.

HCL Transport (Dial-a-Ride) are offering FREE transport to help patients with mobility challenges get to their vaccination appointments - call them directly on 0131 447 9949. Any person who has difficulties with getting out and about due to age, disability, health issues (short-term or long-term), additional support needs or geographic remoteness is eligible to use this service.

If you need to re-arrange the time, please call the vaccine advice line on 0800 030 8013 or visit the NHS Inform website.

*If you are aged 18-29 and registered online for the vaccine, you will be contacted by text or email with an appointment.

Please visit the NHS Inform website at nhsinform.scot/covid19vaccine or call 0800 030 8013 for more information regarding the vaccination programme.

You can also visit the Vaccine Hub for more information on the vaccine roll-out, appointments and venues.


HOW CAN I GET A COPY OF MY VACCINATION STATUS?

Patients seeking evidence of their vaccination status for essential travel purposes (e.g. work or family commitments) should visit the NHS Inform website where you will need a login username and password. These details were provided in your blue invitation letter regarding your vaccination appointments at a mass clinic. Please note this status can only confirm vaccines administered in Scotland.

If you did not receive your vaccine at a mass clinic or have lost your letter, you can create a login yourself online.

If you do not have internet access, you can call the helpline on 0808 196 8565 (10am-6pm) and they will post your status out to you.

YOU SHOULD ONLY ASK FOR YOUR VACCINATION STATUS IF:

  • You are travelling in the next 21 days
  • Your airline or travel destination needs this confirmation before permitting you to fly

Please use the following link to access your status online - Vaccination Status

There are plans currently under discussion to issue COVID status certificates for future routine travel but nothing has been agreed yet - stay tuned! Please DO NOT contact the practice for a letter confirming vaccination status as we are unable to fulfil these requests!



Coronavirus (COVID-19)

IN LIGHT OF RECENT DEVELOPMENTS, PLEASE NOTE THE HEALTH CENTRE IS NO LONGER GENERALLY ACCESSIBLE. PATIENTS WILL ONLY BE ADMITTED VIA OUR BUZZER SYSTEM.

The following measures have been implemented in order to best protect patients and staff:

  1. GPs will be offering telephone consultations first and foremost.
  2. Should you feel like you need to be seen in person you will still be triaged by a GP FIRST. It will be at their discretion if you are invited to attend the practice.
  3. Prescriptions will be sent to a preferred pharmacy rather than being left at the practice to collect - please advise us which one if you have not done so already!
  4. Please still contact your local dental practice or optician should you have any urgent concerns. They are the experts and are best equipped to treat you.
  5. Local pharmacies may have amended their hours of operation - please check before heading out to collect medication!

As the NHS guidelines are changing continuously, please be aware these measures may also change. We will do our best to keep you updated!

Do you have any of these symptoms?

  • A new persistent cough
  • Fever
  • Loss of taste or smell

Please SELF-ISOLATE at home for 10 days and DO NOT attend the surgery. Members of the same household should isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms. If they do, they should self-isolate for a further 10 days from the point symptoms appeared. 

PLEASE BOOK A COVID-19 TEST AS SOON AS POSSIBLE - visit the NHS Inform website below or call 0800 028 2816 to request a test.

Should you require a sick note for your employer to cover your self-isolation period, they are available on the NHS Inform website.

Further information is available online - www.nhsinform.scot/coronavirus
