We do ask, if you are still shielding or if you feel unwell – to not attend the clinic and instead call us and reschedule and follow the advice below:
It’s very busy at @NHS24 & the 111 phone line. The option is to use nhsinform.scot as your first source of info. If symptoms are mild you do not need to call and it means those lines are kept for those with severe symptoms who need attention most urgently. For those with mild symptoms of a new cough and high temperature you need to stay home for 7 days and get well. Fluids, rest, isolation and paracetamol – that’s the advice given by NHS Scotland
