We are aware that appointments for regular smear tests have been disrupted by the lockdown and COVID outbreak. So we are going to hold some 'catch up' clinics and we are inviting any of those who have missed out to contact the practice to book a suitable appointment.

EXEMPTIONS ON FACE COVERINGS

The Scottish Government have advised that people are not required to carry proof that they are exempt from wearing face masks for medical reasons. Exemption letters or certificates are not required and the individual's word should be accepted by relevant organisations.

As such, Practices do not need to provide any proof of exemption for their patients.
