National Screening tests

The NHS offers a number of screening tests aimed either at detecting precancerous conditions [cervical smear test] or very early cancers [breast screening and bowel screening]
We strongly advise our patients to take up these tests. They are all by invitation and a letter will be sent to those who are eligible. 

If you have lost your invitation or think you have been missed out or have missed an appointment, you can still have your tests. Please speak to reception, the practice nurse or the doctor.  For replacement of bowel screening kits you can phone  0800 0121 833

SICK NOTES FOR YOUR EMPLOYER

Please note not to contact our GP surgery regarding sick notes for suspected coronavirus. We would appreciate this at this difficult time. Please read the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-employers-and-businesses-about-covid-19/guidance-for-employers-and-businesses-on-coronavirus-covid-19

Please also direct your employer to the above link for details or go to NHS Inform.   There is a questionnaire for you to complete and you are then able to print a note for your employer.

COVID VACCINATION PASSPORT

  • Please do not contact your GP practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate - they will not be able to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed. 
  • The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. We are working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel.
  • As part of this, we are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their Covid vaccination status directly.
