FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS RE COVID BOOSTER & FLU:- FAQs
SEEING OUR PATIENTS DURING THE PANDEMIC
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this very unusual time. We have had to rapidly change the way we practice and function as a surgery and try to ensure we still offer as much support to you as possible. We thank you for your continued support and understanding. We have made some further changes and as well as telephone appointments, some pre-bookable appointments will be available. It is also possible to have a face to face appointment with the GP on the day you phone.
FACE MASK EXEMPTION
We encourage all patients to wear a face mask during their visit to the surgery. This is to protect not only you but other patients present, the practice staff and to try and reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission. Only patients with an NHS face mask exemption will be permitted access without a face covering. If you have an NHS exemption please ensure you advise staff when you are making your appointment so that appropriate measures can be put in place for your visit.
COVID VACCINATION EXEMPTION CERTIFICATES
GPs and their teams cannot issue vaccination exemption certificates. Further information on the vaccination exemption certificates scheme, including information on safe vaccination and routes to obtain an exemption can be found on the Scottish Government and NHS Inform websites.
