Additional Help and Guidance

CLINICAL

Certain groups of patients are at a higher risk if they contract the coronavirus. This includes all those over 70 and anyone who is eligible for an annual seasonal flu vaccination. However within that group there are a small number of patients who are at further risk. These patients have been contacted by letter by the Scottish Governments’s Chief Medical Officer and provided with specific guidance and support.

If you think you are in this sub group but have not received a letter please contact the surgery by telephone or email.
