As of 8am this morning, all suspected COVID-19 cases will be dealt with via specially designed hubs instead of the GP Practices. This is to make sure that the focus on COVID-19 is being undertaken by dedicated teams, allowing us to get on with the other critical work of General Practice.

Please be aware that, due to social distancing and household isolation rules, we are having to run at reduced capacity and we would still recommend that you only come to see us if the problem is sufficiently important to risk attending. We will still be operating a mainly telephone-based system for the next couple of weeks whilst social distancing is so important.

The main difference for you is that, if you can’t manage your symptoms and can’t find what you need on https://www.nhsinform.scot/coronavirus, you need to phone NHS 24 on 111 for assessment.

Please find below a helpful Q&A from the Scottish Government/BMA/RCGP about the community hubs:
