** IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR OUR PATIENTS**

COVID 19

If you have a new, persistent cough and/or a fever, and/or loss of taste or smell please do not come to the Health Centre, call NHS 24 on 111.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Scottish Government requires General Practice and other healthcare settings to have different infection control and physical distancing guidance to other places such as hospitality and shops.  This is to help reduce the risk to practice staff and to people attending the practice who may be at greater risk if they catch Covid19. The following rules still apply in General Practice:

  1. Wearing of face coverings by patients and the public (unless you are exempt)
  2. Physical distancing of 2 metres in waiting rooms
  3. Contact your practice by telephone in the first instance
  4. Wearing of PPE by staff
  5. Screening of all patients for COVID 19 symptoms

Please support Comrie Medical Centre by complying with this guidance
