The way you will get your flu vaccine this year has changed. People aged 70 or over will now be sent a letter by the national booking system with details of an appointment at a vaccination centre. From now on, GP practices will not administer the Flu jab. Across Scotland, Health and Social Care Partnerships are taking on this role in line with the GP Contract agreed by BMA Scotland on behalf of Scottish GPs. This change has been agreed to relieve pressure on GP practices. As a result no GP practice will offer flu vaccinations or handle booking queries for people in eligible groups.

Instead, the flu vaccine will be delivered by the four Health and Social Care Partnerships in Lothian – East Lothian; Midlothian; Edinburgh and West Lothian.

If you require further information or you need to rearrange your appointment, please contact the helpline on your appointment invitation or the local enquiry line on 0300 790 6296. Please do not contact us as we will be unable to assist you.

You can find out more on the websites of the Health and Social Care Partnerships or on NHS Inform

Anyone over the age of 16 who has not yet had their Covid vaccination can attend a drop-in clinic  or self-register for an appointment.

Please do not contact us to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate as we are unable to provide one. You are able to get a record of your Covid vaccination status by visiting NHS Inform.

The practice will not be providing Covid booster jags, please check online at NHS Inform for more information about delivery of booster jags.

The Scottish Government requires General Practice and other healthcare settings to have different infection control and physical distancing guidance to other places such as hospitality and shops.
This is to help reduce the risk to practice staff and to people attending the practice who may be at greater risk if they catch Covid 19.
The following rules still apply in General Practice:

 – wearing of face coverings by patients and the public (unless you are exempt)
– physical distancing of 2 metres in waiting rooms
– contact us by telephone in the first instance
– wearing of PPE by staff
– screening of all patients for Covid 19 symptoms

Please support us in General Practice by complying with this guidance.
