Face Masks and Face Coverings.
COVID-19 symptoms: if you develop a continuous cough, fever / high temperature or loss of sense of smell, stay at home for 7 days from the day your symptoms started.
If you have these symptoms, but need to speak with a doctor, please call NHS 24 on 111 – this remains the first point of contact for all suspected coronavirus patients.
APPOINTMENTS: currently for the safety of all our patients and staff, we are assessing all patients by telephone initially, and if required, arranging a face to face review.
If you feel your problem is urgent for the same day please speak with reception and ask for a doctor to call you. To help manage demand we would greatly appreciate if you could phone as early in the day as possible.
If you feel your problem is routine/non urgent, we are offering pre-bookable telephone slots with doctors. If your problem can safely be managed in this way, we would appreciate using this option to help us manage demand.
Nursing and blood taking appointments remain available for essential conditions.
The building is locked: please only attend the practice if you have been asked to do so.
During this difficult time we would like to thank all of you for being so patient and considerate, while we work to continue providing the highest standard of care.
Ormiston Medical Practice would like to offer video consultations.
CALL MIA (Minor Injury Assessment)
NHS Lothian are now offering a Minor Injury Assessment by video call in your own home. Their aim is to provide timely assessment, advise or treatment to patients.
The assessment will be carried out by a specialist Nurse Practitioner from the Minor Injury Unit using secure video consulting software. This software is private and confidential. If the Nurse Practitioner decides it is best for you to come into the Minor Injusry Clinic a speedy appointment will be made for you.
