Appointments

Currently, as is the case in most GP surgeries nationwide, all appointments are Telephone consultations. This is due to the ongoing impact caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and to protect both patients, GP's and staff alike.
You will only be offered a face to face appointent if you have had a telephone consultation with the GP/ANP and it is deemed that this is essential.
If you are allocated a Telephone consultation, this is your appointment unless stated otherwise at the end of this consultation.
If you are required to attend the surgery, please wear a face covering or mask. Our Touchscreen is now operational so please use this to check-in were possible.
Please ensure to use hand gel BEFORE and AFTER touching the screen. In addition to this, this screen will be cleaned regularly as are all other surfaces in the surgery.
We realise it can currently be difficult and frustrating for everyone in our daily lives and particularly if you are unwell but we do appreciate your patience and understanding during these unprecidented times.

2020 Flu delivery

There are several big changes to how flu vaccinations will be delivered this year as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic.

  1. 18-64 year old's that are normally eligible for flu will be vaccinated by their GP Surgey. At Bishopton these will be carried out at designated evening/weekend flu clinics at the practice on Monday evenings 6-7pm or  our Saturday clinic on 31st of October. The clinics will be run by appointment only. Our first evening flu clinic is next week (21st). Please telephone the surgery to book your appointment.
  2. Pregnant patients will be given their vaccination by the midwife service.
  3. All other groups that would normally be vaccinated by general practice (2-5yrs and over 65 yrs and school children who miss their vaccination at school)will NOT be vaccinated by their GP practice this year. We will not be supplied with either the child nasal spray or the activated (over 65's) vaccine as a result. The Renfrewshire HSCP will deliver these vaccines from a centralised hub and further information regarding this will follow. Please do not contact the surgery to ask for more information about this as we will share any specific information  we have with you when we receive it.

We appreciate this will cause some inconvenience for the group's having to go somewhere different this year for their vaccination . However, we would strongly encourage you as always to take the time to get yourself vaccinated against flu. Protect yourself, lover ones and colleagues!


Flu Clinics-What to Expect

1. Vaccinations are by appointment only
2. Only come to the Health Centre at the time you were advised when you booked your appointment
3. Only come to your appointment if you are fit and well
4. You will be asked to queue outside of the Health Centre on the pavement, appropriately distanced by 2m from the person in front of you
5. A member of our team will be at the front door to:

Preferred arm
- give you an information leaflet about your
Vaccination to take home with you
