We provide comprehensive NHS primary care services to help you manage your health and well-being.
Our aim is to provide a high quality, caring and personal healthcare service to our whole patient population by:
- Putting our patients at the centre of what we do
- Having a highly qualified and trained multi-professional integrated primary Healthcare Team
- Offering our services in a safe, supportive and suitably equipped environment, using technological advances in healthcare systems for our patient’s benefit.
Due to cases of COVID -19 growing again we are asking that you attend any arranged appointments in the surgery at the time of your appointment and not earlier. We are trying to reduce the amount of patients in our waiting rooms at one time so you may be asked to wait outside, please ensure you are prepared for this by bringing a jacket etc . We also ask that you attend alone where possible and children and those who require carers only bring only 1 additional person anyone else will be asked to wait outside. We are trying our hardest to keep the practice doors open and the practice as accessible as possible while ensuring that we are working safely and following guidelines in this difficult time. We really appreciate you understanding and support.
We will shortly be commencing our 2nd dose Covid Vaccination Clinics. Every patient that has had a 1st dose at whinpark will have had the 2nd appointment made at the time the 1st dose was administered. Please note we are no longer able to offer any 1st dose vaccines. If you feel have missed your first dose and are in the categories below please contact the national helpline or complete the form below.
GPs have been asked to provide vaccines for those aged 80 and over, moving on to those aged 75 – 79 and then those who are shielding.
You can find out more about the priority groups by clicking here.
All other groups will be offered appointments via Health Board run services by letter.
If you feel you should have had your covid vaccination appointment letter by now then please see the link below to query your missing appointment details.
There is no need for you to contact the practice as we will be in touch with those eligible. If you have any questions about the COVID Vaccine, please visit NHS Inform by clicking here, or call the national helpline 0800 030 8013 which is open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.
Please see the below statement from the Scottish Government regarding Covid Vaccination Passports:
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
