The COVID vaccination programme is starting to roll out across Lothian. If you are eligible for the vaccine you will be contacted in due course by the Health Board or your medical practice. Please do not call the practice to ask about the vaccine. Further information can be found at the following link:- nhs inform covd vaccine information
NHS Scotland strongly recommends you get your flu vaccine this year. This is for three reasons:
Flu can be serious and life threatening. Every year thousands of people in Scotland are hospitalised because of flu. People aged 65 or over are at particular risk.
To reduce the risk of you spreading flu to friends and family.
To help our NHS avoid the pressure that a spike in seasonal flu would put on top of COVID-19.
Follow this link for more information on who is eligible for a free flu vaccination and when and where you will receive your vaccine this year. www.nhsinform.scot/flu
This year, more than ever, please help protect yourself, others and our NHS.
Update - as with most practices across the city Covid-19 has caused the practice to significantly change the way it operates. Most requests are now dealt with over the phone. Non-essential tasks have been postponed, although some more routine services are being phased back in. As a result, some of the information on this website may be out of date for the time being.
Our phone lines remain open as normal. We are constantly reviewing our processes based on current advice on a daily and weekly basis in order to provide the most effective service to our patients.
We are grateful for your patience and cooperation at this time.
