Noticeboard

Coronavirus

We will not be opening up routine face to face appointments from 30th March onwards for GPs, Advanced Nurse Practioner or Nurse. We will provide an on-the-day service and would ask patients to phone in on the day should they need to be seen urgently . We will be offering more telephone consultations and will see patients who need a face to face appointment having gathered some initial information. This is to enable us to plan ahead and assess the situation as it develops in the UK.  We will not be offering online bookings until further notice. Please be patient when contacting us by phone and continue to select Option 5 - we have seen a significant  increase in calls already so please be aware it may take longer than usual to get through to us.

If you have already have a booked appointment please contact the Health Centre so this can be changed to a telephone consultation. If it is still felt to be essential to see you in the surgery, a further appointment will be made.

NHS Inform has the most up to date advice https://www.nhsinform.scot There is an online tool to help patients who are concerned they may have the virus follow this link for more details https://www.nhsinform.scot/illnesses-and-conditions/infections-and-poisoning/coronavirus-covid-19

There is also a Helpline number for patients who have visited the countries affected - 0800 028 2816

 

Think you may have a urinary tract infection? If you are female and between the ages of 18 and 65 then you can go to your Pharmacy for treatment without an appointment. There is no need to take a sample and they can prescribe a course of antibiotics just like the GP.  Patients contacting the surgery may be directed to Pharmacy rather than treated here.  Please note this is not suitable for those who are allergic to Trimethoprim  or have recurrent symptoms - Pharmacy First!

NATIONAL HEALTH INFORMATION SERVICE - www.nhsinform.scot
Access to obtain answers to everyday questions about your health:
seasonal topics; self-help guides; healthy living topics; mental wellbeing; food & nutrition; smoking & alcohol information

Please note the community pharmacies are experiencing unprecedented numbers of prescription requests and staff absences as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and as such it may take up to 7 days to process prescription requests.  Please allow sufficient time for the medications you need and don't order anything you do not require.

 

 

 

 

 

Registration

registration

You can find our registration forms below. Click on a link to open a form. You can then print it, fill out your details and bring it along to the practice with your ID (e.g. passport, driving licence) and arrange an initial consultation. Please note Patients are registered with the practice, not an individual GP.

Your medical record will be set up with the name of one of the doctors who will supervise your care (registered doctor), however you can at any time express a preference for a practitioner, for either all of your medical needs or on a case by case basis. This preference will be recorded in your medical notes (usual doctor). Whilst the practice will try to comply with your requests on all occasions, it may not always be possible. 

Anyone living within the practice area may register with this practice.   When registering, it is helpful if you can bring your ID and birth certificate with you (as well as those of any other family members that you are registering).  

In addition to the registration form, you will be asked to complete a new patient questionnaire -
New Patient Questionnaire and Introduction Information
This is just to provide some information about yourself which will  help the doctor to provide medical care for you while your medical records are being transferred from your old practice.

Registration Form:
Permanent Resident Registration Form

The forms are all Adobe Acrobat documents. To view them you will need to have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. You probably already do but if the forms do not open properly then you can download the Adobe Acrobat Reader from here

If you move out of the practice area, you will need to register with a new practice as soon as you move.   If you need help finding a new practice, contact Practitioner Services Division at the address below :

NHS National Services Scotland (Medical)

Gyle Square

or
telephone: 0131 275 7038

 

As part of the NHS commitment to ensure the best value of services and to reduce administrative costs to the NHS, the need to produce Medical Cards each time a patient re-registers or changes address has been reviewed.    The cost to the NHS is currently in excess of £250,000 per annum and therefore it is proposed that routine production of medical cards will cease.    If patients require a medical card for legitimate reasons they can be obtained by contacting Practitioner Services on www. psd.scot.nhs.uk/contact-us.html
