Covid 19 Vaccination
Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board have asked GP practices to offer Covid vaccination to patients aged 75 and over and patients who are Shielding. All our patients in these groups have now been offered both doses.
More info available at https://www.renfrewshire.hscp.scot/COVIDVaccine
If you have a new cough and/or high temperature and/or loss of taste or smell and wish advice please contact NHS 24 on 111.
Organise a test immediately by following guidance on http://www.nhsinform.scot
Isolate for 10 days if you have any coronavirus symptoms. Contacts need to isolate for 14 days. More information is on above website.
Please do not call your GP or go to the surgery. If you require a sick note due to coronavirus, you can get this from the NHS Inform website.
Callers to the 111 helpline will be assessed and, if necessary, transferred to a local community hub staffed by clinicians from across the healthcare system to ensure patients get the best possible advice at the right time.
Depending on their assessment, patients may be given advice to help them continue self-isolating at home or be given an appointment to attend a local assessment centre for further treatment.
NHS Inform’s coronavirus webpage is still the fastest way for people to get the latest health advice and information. There is also a free NHS 24 helpline for people without symptoms looking for general information on coronavirus.
For patients who do not have any coronavirus symptoms, they should continue to telephone their GP when open and not call NHS 24.
In the out of hours period, when displaying symptoms other than coronavirus, you should only call 111 if you need urgent assessment and cannot wait until your GP is open.
