You should contact NHS Scotland if you think you should have received an invitation to your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination appointment by now, or if you have lost your invitation letter. You can do this by completing an online form available here
Covid-19 booster and seasonal flu vaccine
This year, the covid-19 booster and seasonal flu vaccination programmes are being delivered together. Where possible, people who are eligible for both vaccinations will receive one appointment - so they don't need to attend two appointments within a short period of time.
To allow GP practices to continue to provide vital services to patients, they will not be involved in delivering these programmes. Please do not contact the practice about the covid booster or flu vaccination as we will not be able to help.
As with the initial covid-19 vaccination programme, we are asking people to be patient as they will be contacted when it is their turn for either or both vaccines.
People who are eligible will be invited to attend an appointment in one of the seven vaccination centres, located across Lanarkshire. These are:
- Airdrie Town Hall, Airdrie
- Ballerup Hall, East Kilbride
- Banqueting Hall, South Lanarkshire Council HQ Hamilton
- Braidfute Retail Park, Lanark (with satellite clinics at Abington, Biggar and Stonehouse)
- Fernhill Community Centre, Rutherglen
- Link Community Centre, Cumbernauld
- Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility, Motherwell
Further information can be found on NHS Lanarkshire FAQs here
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.

At Modyrvale we want to ensure the safety of all patients and staff throughout the Coronavirus pandemic. This means that our normal services will undoubtedly be affected as we put new procedures in place to allow us to follow the guidance provided. As NHS services start to return you will find things a bit different - the following video may be helpful Attending your GP Surgery
NHS Inform is the main source of updated information to the public in Scotland and can be accessed through the following link www.nhsinform.scot.
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. When phoning the surgery for an appointment you will enter into a queuing system and be told your position in the queue as you wait for one of our reception staff to become free. Please note that if you are awaiting a phone call from the doctor it may display as "No Caller ID" on your phone.
Please note that in the forthcoming weeks/months we anticipate that there will be periods of staff shortage and we may need to limit patient appointments to “emergencies only”.
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.
