Latest News and Coronavirus Update

 

Online Repeat Prescriptions

Due to increased Covid 19 demands on the surgery and the local pharmacies the method or ordering repeat prescriptions is changing.

All new and existing patients will need to register for the new service. All patients must have a valid email address for this new service and is used solely by you or your representative.

Please keep watching the website for more information.

Online Patient Registration

The online patient registration service has been suspended till the 1st February 2021 as there has been an overwhelming demand for our service.  The service will be reinstated sooner if possible.

 

COVID  - 19 Vaccination Programme Update

The West End Medical Practice will be undertaking a number of vaccination clinics for the new and approved AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine over the coming weeks.

The next clinic for the vaccination is on Wednesday 27th January 2021.

It is hoped, subject to vaccinations being available, that all patients over 80 will be offered their first vaccination by 30th January 2021.

As there is a managed supply of vaccines patients are being offered a vaccination strictly based on their age, i.e. the oldest patients first and so on.

Unless you have an appointment you should NOT attend the clinic.

There is NO need to call the Practice for an appointment for a vaccination.  When, and if,  you are eligible for a vaccination, BY AGE, the Practice will contact you, or your representative, to arrange an appointment for the next available clinic.

ALL PATIENTS WHO ARE HOUSE BOUND WILL BE CONTACTED AND VACCINATED BY THE COMMUNITY NURSING TEAM

As soon as we have further information on vaccine availability and further clinics we will update our website and social media pages accordingly.

You are advised to visit the NHS Inform website at nhsinform.scot/covid19vaccine or call 0800 030 8013 for more details.
