    Coronavirus important information for all patients

    Due to recent advice and the rapidly changing picture of Covid-19, we have taken the decision to stop booking routine appointments to allow our staff to deal with this ever changing picture. We will continue to see urgent patients, however, all patients with viral upper respiratory tract symptoms will be phoned by the doctor to decide on the most appropriate action. It may be that this requires a face to face review at the surgery or it may mean that we discuss symptomatic management at home. Both Eaglesham and the Health Centre remain open. We are continuing to complete our routine work including issuing prescriptions. We are in discussion with our Pharmacy colleagues to decide how this will continue. However, please order your prescriptions as you would ordinarily. Our phone lines are open and we encourage you to phone the practice rather than attend. We continue to follow the guidelines issued by the government which are also available on this site. This website will be updated wheneverr we have new information or advice.
