COVID-19 General Information

Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, China. For most people COVID-19 will be a mild, self-limiting infection but for some, it may be more serious and require further assessment and possibly hospital admission.

  • If you have a new cough or high temperature, please follow the up to date advice on NHS Inform. If your symptoms are mild you will need to self isolate. However if these symptoms worsen or you are in a high risk group please dial the NHS on 111. They will consult with you and let you know if you need to be seen.
  • If you are referred back to the practice, we will arrange a telephone consultation with the Duty Doctor.
  • If you are told to attend the Community Assessment Centre, located at Fort William Health Centre, you will be given an appointment and entry instructions. Please follow these specific instructions fully which include remaining in your vehicle until you are called. Do not enter the building at the main entrance.

Clearly this is a fast-moving situation; to ensure you are aware of current guidelines please click on the link below to NHS Inform which is regularly updated and contains information on issues such as self isolating, social distancing etc.

COVID Status Certification (Covid Passports)

Please do not contact the Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate as we are unable 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. They 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, they are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their COVID vaccination status directly.
