Welcome to St Triduana's Medical Practice
We remain available for both routine and urgent care during the COVID19 pandemic. However, we have had to make some changes to the way we provide services to protect patients and staff:
- If you are concerned you may have symptoms of COVID19 (Fever, New Persistent Cough, Shortness of Breath or Loss of Taste or Smell), please do NOT call the practice. Please book a test via https://www.nhsinform.scot/. If you feel very unwell, call NHS24 on 111.
- All our appointments are now by telephone initially, and patients will be seen subsequently at the practice only if required. Please phone our patient advisors on 0131 657 3341 to book a telephone appointment; we have morning or afternoon appointments but cannot give you an exact time. Most things can wait for the next available routine slot, however, if you feel your problem is very urgent please let the advisor know. The advisor will ask for a brief description of your problem to allow them to best deal with it, thank you for providing this. We are not accepting bookings online or at the reception desk, so please call us instead.
- Please DO NOT come to the practice unless we have asked you to come. We are only seeing patients face to face if necessary for an examination or nursing procedure.
- Please DO NOT come to the Surgery with requests for repeat medication. Requests can be made via online "Patient Access" website or app, submitting a request to a local pharmacy or putting your request in our letterbox outside. Please DO NOT come to the surgery to collect prescriptions either. Please indicate with your request which chemist you use, and we would be happy to send it there for you to collect.
- Please wear a Face Covering over your nose and mouth if you have been asked to attend the practice.
Please be aware that COVID symptoms are similar to what you can get for other illnesses. Follow the link below to recognise what are COVID related symptoms.
COVID DROP IN CLINIC
A vaccine drop-in centre for the over 40s will run in East Lothian this weekend as part of the battle against COVID-19. A clinic will take place on Saturday and Sunday (June 12 and 13), for people aged 40 and over, who require a first or second dose of the Astra Zeneca vaccine.
The clinic will run at the East Lothian Community Hospital Vaccination Centre (ELCHVC).
People will be seen on a first come first served basis when the centres open at 8.30am and run through until 3.30pm.
