Craignair Health Centre – Coronavirus
We’d like to
thank all our patients for their understanding and patience at this challenging
time. We have had to implement a few changes to the way we’re working at the
moment, but we are still
open. The changes we
have made are to protect our patients from the risk of infection and to try to
ensure that we are able to stay open and functioning throughout this time.
trying to keep the number of patients coming into the health centre to a
minimum, so are currently offering telephone consultations. If the doctor thinks
you need to be seen face to face, they will arrange a suitable time for you to
come in. We are running a restricted service and some routine work like chronic
disease monitoring and medical reports
are temporarily suspended.
If you have
a new, continuous cough or a fever, please stay at home and follow the government advice on self isolation nhsinform.scot. You do not need to inform us if you are self
isolating. If you are worried about your symptoms, please phone the surgery and
a doctor will be able to advise you what to do. Please DO NOT come to the
surgery with symptoms.
not order prescriptions earlier than usual or order more than needed.
been to the health centre recently, you’ll have noticed the red signs round the
building. We have an area set aside for us to be able to see patients who need
a clinical assessment who have coronavirus symptoms. There is a strict
procedure we will go through if this becomes necessary and this will be
arranged on a case by case basis by the duty doctor.
thank you for bearing with us. We’ll try to keep you updated as the situation
