Non-urgent advice: As per recent communication from the Scottish Government, we have been asked to make patients aware of the following:
Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate – they will not be able to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed.
The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so and are working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel.
As part of this, the Scottish Government are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their Covid vaccination status directly.
Out Of Hours & Emergencies
If you have a medical problem which can not wait until the surgery reopens you should telephone NHS24 on 111. On calling NHS24 you may be offered advice by a nurse or doctor and if necessary they may ask you to attend one of their emergency clinics or they will visit you at home if you are unable to get to one of the clinics. This service should only be used for things that can not wait until we reopen. Please remember to always dial 999 in the event of a life threatening emergency. For some useful advice on how to deal with common conditions please refer to the NHS24 website – www.nhs24.com or NHS inform – www.nhsinform.scot
