Do you want to sent a clinical photograph to the surgery? Access the good photography guide here: The Good Photography Guide
If you've developed a continuous cough or fever/high temperature, stay at home for 10 days from the day your symptoms started. Request a test: Phone 01851 601151 or visit www.nhsinform.scot. The national COVID-19 service is a bit erratic in its understanding of island arrangements for tests so we suggest trying the Stornoway number first. If you need any advice about shielding yourself from infection, and many other topics, visit www.nhsinform.scot
During the current pandemic, we have suspended on-line bookings the surgery. All patients requesting clinical assessment will be telephoned, or assessed at a video appointment. You may be asked to attend the surgery for an appointment after your telephone or video appointment. You can still order prescription online or by phone as usual by phoning 603115. Some problems can be assessed from a good photograph.
The branch surgery will be reopening in December. The building is very very small and social distancing is difficult. Please do not attend without an appointment. Patients will be assessed with a telephone call before any appointments are arranged.
