Changes to access at the surgery as a result of Covid

Kingussie Medical Practice is currently restricting access for the safety of all patients and staff.

The practice remains OPEN for all essential primary care problems but on the advice of Health Protection Scotland we have put in place a process whereby everyone is screened by telephone prior to being seen.

Please be aware that it is now necessary where possible to wear a face covering if you come into the surgery premises. If you arrive and do not have one, please let the receptionist know and we will bring one to the door for you before you enter the building.

All patients will still have access to the care they require. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.

Please phone 01540 661 233 if you feel you require medical advice and we will call you back.

Please send all photographs, requested by the practice, to our secure email address. Please note that this address is monitored by administration staff.
