Medical care: not COVID related
During the COVID outbreak Braesview Medical Group is open.
Please contact us if you have concerns about new symptoms or a change in your condition.
We are triaging all requests for medical help, that means a Nurse or GP will call you on the phone, however please note you can make a telephone appointment with our Mental Health Nurse and Physio directly through our reception staff on the phone.
We will advise you if need to attend the surgery.
We have taken steps to minimise the risk to patients attending the surgery.
Please continue to practice social distancing and hand washing.
All staff at Braesview wish you and your family well at this difficult time.

COVID 19: Shielding
Some of you will have received letters from the Chief Medical Officer with specific advice because you are at the highest risk of becoming severely unwell if you develop Covid 19. You need to be shielded from the virus.
- If you have not received a letter and believe you are in this group, please phone the practice.
- www.nhsinform.scot has a website section on “Covid 19: Shielding” which explains which people are in this highest risk group.
Our community pharmacy colleagues have been under great pressure and are working very hard at this challenging time. Please use the online ordering where at all possible, and leave 7 days for repeat prescriptions to be filled.
We have set up a new email address for prescriptions requests only:
If you need to hand in a prescription, each of the 3 practices in the Health Centre will have a box at the front door for you to leave this. Samples can be left there too.
