Covid-19 Vaccination

We are currently vaccinating patients 75 years and over and patients who are in a shielding category. If you have not had your vaccine as yet please contact our admin team on 0141 531 6220 and we will arrange for you to have this done at the practice.   

Patients’ outwith these groups can call the Covid-19 helpline for further information:

HELPLINE NO: 0800 030 8013

Available seven days a week between the hours of 8am and 8pm

Please note that it is not possible to book, cancel or rearrange an appointment at this stage.

Repeat Prescriptions

Please note that we are trying to prevent unnecessary footfall in the practice during the current pandemic. We would ask that when you next order your repeat prescription you advise us of your preferred pharmacy (provided it is in our local area). We will ensure that your prescription is sent directly to the pharmacy for collection. Please ensure that your current telephone number is updated on our system.

We are currently providing telephone consultation appointments. Following your consultation you may be asked to attend a face to face appointment where you will be given a specific appointment time. We ask that you wear a face covering and attend alone at the time of your appointment. If the clinician assesses you as suitable for a video consultation please click here for instructions to connect to this service. 

Michele Blair, our Links Worker can provide assistance to patients who may require additional support during this challenging time. Please contact our administration team who will pass on your details.
