Coronavirus

 

In response to the latest government advice on Corona Virus we are triaging all appointment requests over the phone. Please DO NOT ATTEND the surgery but instead phone 0141 339 3626 and one of the GP’s will phone you back. The NHS Inform website has been updated and contains all the relevant advice regarding travel, symptoms and self-isolation. It still also has the useful self-assessment guide and we would highly recommend it as the first port of call if you are concerned:

What to do if you have coronavirus symptoms

Continue to stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.

Use the 111 online coronavirus service or NHS24 to find out what to do:

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

 

In order to reduce potential risks we would urge all patients to ONLY use the 24 hr telephone prescription line (0141 334 2009) or our secure website page for all your medication requests. Please DO NOT come to the surgery. When ordering please state which pharmacy you wish us to send your prescription to either Boots Norby, Dicksons, Hogarth or  Buchanan and Campbell. Please DO NOT ORDER your prescriptions early and only what you require. Ordering more than you require could cause the risk of medication shortages and we ask you to be mindful of this. If you have run out of medication your local pharmacy may be able to provide you with a short supply of medication until your routine script is available. Please contact your local pharmacy in the first instance.  

 

 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.

 

This is peak season for respiratory and flu-like illness. There will be cases presenting with

symptoms of cough, fever and shortness of breath, but these are highly unlikely to be novel

coronavirus.

 

The public can be assured that Scotland is always well prepared for these types of outbreak

and will remain vigilant. We have a proven track record of dealing with challenging health

issues and have established public health and infectious disease experts working round the

clock.

 

To protect yourself and others, it is best to:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
  • Bin the tissue.
  • To kill germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.

Phlebotomy Service

 

As part of the new Scottish GP contract with Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board the phlebotomy service is being moved from GP surgeries to central locations.

The locations will be The Community Centre for Health, 547 Dumbarton Road, Partick, Glasgow or Plean Street Clinic, 18 Plean street, Glasgow, G14 0YJ.

We will be starting to direct patients to this service.  To book a blood appointment at either location you will be advised by your GP, Nurse or by letter to telephone 0141 355 1525 between 8:30-4:30pm, they will take your name and CHI number and arrange your appointment at a suitable time.  Appointments will be available Monday – Friday 8.45am – 4.15pm.

If attending these locations is too difficult you will still be able to make your phlebotomy appointment at the surgery with the HCA in the mornings.

SHINGLES 2019

Shingles is a one off vaccination and this year we will be administering the vaccination to those aged 70. Anyone under 80 years old who has been offered the vaccine in previous years but did not wish to take up the offer can also receive it this year too. We will be contacting eligible patients around November.
