The Practice realises that expectations are rising with the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine. Please be assured that as soon as you become eligible, and we have a sufficient supply of the vaccine that we will contact you to offer an appointment.
We will likely receive delivery of the vaccine at short notice and therefore will contact patients via telephone in the first instance. We will of course follow-up patients that we have been unable to reach over the telephone. The Practice will initially focus on the first eligible cohort of patients (those 80 years and over by 31 March 2021) until the end of January 2021. We are also working with NHS Tayside to coordinating the administration of the vaccine to our over 80-year-old patients who are housebound.
We thank you for your patience.

- Sanitise your hands with gel on arrival and departure (we have sanitising points at reception and in the waiting area)
Please DO NOT attend the Practice if you are:
- Displaying symptoms of COVID19 (cough, fever, loss of taste/smell)

We are currently restricting access for the safety of all patients and staff.
We remain open for all essential primary care problems but on the advice of Health Protection Scotland, we have put in place a process whereby everyone is screened by telephone prior to being seen.
All patients will still have access to the care they require.
We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
