As the NHS begins to rollout new treatments for those who test positive for Covid and are deemed at high risk, the Health Board have strict criteria for those that are eligible for the trials. You must first of all had a positive PCR test. Secondly you must be a high risk patient due to specific listed conditions (for example are receiving chemotherapy treatment, have renal or liver disease, have a solid cancer or haematological malignancy, immune deficiency conditions). If you wish to check if you are eligible please call NHS GG&C on 0800 121 7072. Do not call the Practice as we have no influence or control over who gets these treatments, including issuing the treatment.

 

Please note that you should not request your vaccine status information from your GP.

A vaccination status letter can be downloaded from NHS Inform (https://www.nhsinform.scot/covid19status) or, for people not online, they can requested in the post via a Freephone Covid Status Helpline: 0808 196 8565.

Patients who receive their vaccine outwith the UK will have to use whatever certification they are provided with from that country as proof of vaccination as it cannot be added to the NHS UK status letter or Covid app.
