Please note the practice is now closed between 12.30 and 1.30pm
Muirside Practice is open but we ask that until further notice you do not attend the surgery unless advised to do so by a GP. Please phone the surgery first. For collections of prescriptions please do not enter the surgery. Please call and advise our staff of your chosen pharmacy where you can collect your prescriptions. Please do not enter the practice should you have any symptoms of cough, fever or lost of taste and smell. When entering the building we ask you to wear a face covering.
If you have coronavirus symptoms
If you’ve developed symptoms (however mild), stay at home for 10 days from the start of your symptoms and arrange to be tested. Do not go to your GP, pharmacy or hospital.
You should remain at home until you get the result of the test, and then follow the advice you will be given based on the result.
Read our stay at home guidance for households with possible coronavirus infection.
Do the people I live with need to take any action?
If you live with other people and have symptoms, they'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the start of your symptoms even if they don’t have symptoms themselves.
If they develop symptoms within the 14 days, they need to stay at home for 10 days from the day their symptoms started and arrange to be tested. They should do this even if it takes them over the 14-day isolation period.
Symptoms of coronavirus
The most common symptoms are new:
- continuous cough
- fever/high temperature (37.8C or greater)
- loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste (anosmia)
A new continuous cough is where you:
- have a new cough that’s lasted for an hour
- have had 3 or more episodes of coughing in 24 hours
- are coughing more than usual
A high temperature is feeling hot to the touch on your chest or back (you don’t need to measure your temperature). You may feel warm, cold or shivery.
Information for the public on COVID-19, including stay at home advice for people who are self-isolating, can be found on NHS Inform.
Further, people are advised to take social distancing measures to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19. In particular, this is strongly advised for people aged 70 or over, people with underlying medical conditions and pregnant women. Further advice on these measures will be available on NHS Inform shortly.
