CURRENT INFECTION CONTROL AND PHYSICAL DISTANCING GUIDANCE
The Scottish Government requires General Practice and other healthcare settings to have different infection control and physical distancing guidance to other places such as hospitals 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)
- contact your practice by telephone in the first instance
- wearing of PPE by staff
- screening of all patients for COVID 19 symptoms
