COVID Vaccine Passports

 

We are aware that nhs staff, and in particularly vaccinators, have been fielding a number of questions regarding the provision of COVID passports for patients. We are now appealing to the public not to ask our staff for these at vaccination centres and to not contact their GP Practice to ask for a COVID vaccination passport or status certificate.

 

The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. It is also working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel.

 

We would  point patients to the COVID FAQs on the NHS Lothian website if they wish to find out more information.

Registrars

Our practice is approved for training registrar doctors who have chosen a career in general practice.  GP registrars are fully qualified doctors who have a great deal of hospital experience and wish to become a GP. They gain valuable experience by working with us for up to a year and share all aspects of medical care with the GP partners.  Please accept their services as an extension of our own.

Sometimes as part of the registrars training, patients are requested to allow their consultation to be videotaped, these recordings are for educational purposes only.  Your permission will always be requested beforehand, if you do not wish your consultation to be recorded just say so; your care will not be affected in any way.

Students

We train medical students and nursing students from Edinburgh University.  We hope that you will co-operate with us and help the students to learn about general practice. You will be informed of their presence in advance, and if you do not want them to be present at a consultation, your wishes will be respected; your care will not be affected in any way.
