** 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.

If you have any queries about COVID19, please visit www.nhsinform.scot/coronavirus

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

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

stethescope_blue_bookThe practice is an accredited practice for training medical students. This means there may be medical students attached to the practice at various times (usually attached to the practice for 1–3 months during their 5th year at university). The doctors may have a medical student present during consultations at the surgery or on home visits.

We understand that patients may not wish to discuss sensitive subjects in the presence of a medical student. Therefore, you will be informed accordingly when you report to the reception desk. Please inform the receptionists if you prefer to see the doctor alone. You don’t have to give a reason and the doctor will understand.

Occasionally the doctors will ask patients for consent to record your consultation on video for training purposes. The tape is reviewed with another doctor in order to observe and improve communications between doctor and patient. The practice adheres strictly to the national guidelines for consent, confidentiality and usage of such videotapes.

Your consultation can only be video taped with your written consent beforehand and you will be asked for your written consent again after the consultation. Again the doctors concerned will understand if you change your mind and refuse permission. Videotapes are an important means of improving doctors’ skills, but we understand and respect your rights, without question, to refuse anything that you might find intrusive to your own health care, which remains our foremost priority.
