New Government Guidance from Monday 13th December.
All patients entering healthcare premises should be screened for respiratory symptoms. Please do not visit the Practice if you have any respiratory/viral symptoms incliding cough, sore throat, runny nose, muscle aches, temperature or you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID in the last 14 days. We can arrange for you to have a telephone consultation or rearrange your appointment for another time, continue to send prescriptions to a chemist or your choice, post or email sick lines.
Central/Community Phlebotomy Hub
There is now a new central/community phlebotomy service which is running from Falkirk Community Hospital. This service has appointment's available into the afternoon which gives more flexibillity for booking. If you have been asked to arrange an appointment for blood tests please call receptions as normal and they will advise you on where to attend for your appointment.
Flu and Covid Vaccinations
All Flu and Covid Vaccinations are being delivered by NHS Forth Valley Central Immunisation Team. Eligible patients will be sent a letter to attend Falkirk Community Hospital. Housebound patients will be contacted separately. Please note that the Practice will have no vaccines at all this year. We are currently experiencing a high volume of calls so would request that you do not contact us for information as we have no access to this system. For information please visit www.nhsinform.com or www.nhsforthvalley.com

Information from the Scottish Government regarding COVID Status Certification.
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.
