Shielding Patients

Shielding Patients

The Scottish Government have identified particular groups of people who would benefit from shielding for 12 weeks during the coronavirus outbreak.  They have already sent letters to a number of patient groups, however, have asked the GP practices to identify any patients who may have been missed off these lists.  If you fall into these categories you will receive a phone call from either a GP or Practice Nurse. 

If you are shielding and require medical care we will make special arrangements for you to be seen in the practice. 

Please find below a copy of the Scottish Government letter that is being sent to those vulnerable groups
