LOOKING FOR A RECORD OF YOUR CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) VACCINATION STATUS?
Unfortunately GP Practices are unable to provide this information - Please click here (Covid 19 Status) to find out how to access your vaccination status online. All enquiries about vaccination status records should go to the national covid-19 status helpline on 0808 196 8565. It can take up to 14 days to rectify issues on vaccination records, so people should check their records as early as possible, before going on holiday or to an event.
CONTACTING THE SURGERY
To assist us in continuing to provide ongoing care in very difficult circumstances we have introduced a number of measures as follows:
Pre-bookable appointments and online booking of appointments have been temporarily suspended.
Our on the day appointment service is still available, however reception staff will need to ask you why you need a GP appointment, and this can include detailed information on your symptoms.
Initially you will be given a telephone consultation with the GP and it is likely that most patients will be able to have their care managed through this telephone consultation. If the GP needs to arrange for a face-to-face appointment he/she will do this by providing one of the following options for you:
A normal face-to-face appointment with the GP
A video link appointment from your phone/iPad or computer - NHS Lanarkshire Near Me by Attend Anywhere available here
Alternatively if you are in one of the “at risk” categories you may be asked to attend a special clinic appointment and details will be provided to you by the GP.
Extended hours appointments - these are currently taking the form of telephone consultations for people who work and cannot attend during normal working hours.
Phoning the Surgery – We are pleased to report we have recently upgraded our telephone system to provide additional incoming lines. Despite this the telephone lines remain very busy at peak times and we apologise that this can be very frustrating. Please note that if you are awaiting a phone call from the doctor it may display as "No Caller ID" on your phone.
Repeat medication – there is no change to the process for ordering your repeat medication however it would be helpful if you advise the reception team of your preferred pharmacy so that we can arrange for your prescription to be sent directly to the pharmacy. Note that the online repeat prescription system is still in use and anyone registered for this service can continue to order medication in the normal manner. Note that due to the demand on local pharmacies it may take longer than normal for your prescription to be ready and we would advise you to allow 4-5 working days.
