If you have any worries about money during this uncertain time please have a look at the leaflet below.

Coronavirus Money Worries

This country is facing a health emergency the likes of which we have not seen for over 100 years. One in three Coronavirus tests is now positive.


If you are in one of the at risk groups and you should now be socially isolating.

There is Coronavirus in the local area, people are being admitted to hospital with it and at least one person from Elgin is in the specialist infection unit in Aberdeen.

Coronavirus is highly infectious; it can be spread by droplet and mist inhalation. This means you can pick it up by simply talking to someone.


There is a very good self help guide for Coronavirus available on the NHSinform website please read this now, even if you are well:           

Coronavirus is highly infectious, there is no cure and unless its progress is halted it will overwhelm the NHS.

In order to protect the most vulnerable in our community we are all responsible for maintaining social distance.

***********Coronavirus or Covid-19 Information***********

*********Other Coronavirus Information*********

This country is facing a public health emergency. The impact of Coronavirus is becoming greater everyday. As a practice we will be doing our utmost to protect our patients and staff. To this end we have today taken the very difficult decision to close the surgery front door and all access will be mediated through an enhanced telephone triage service.

The practice phone number is 0345 337 99 88

The length of time that the triage service works in the morning and afternoon has been extended to 8.30 to 9.30 and 1.30 to 2.30. As long as we have the staff available the access to same day telephone advice will be enhanced. 

There is a very good self help guide for Coronavirus available on the NHSinform website and I would encourage everyone to read this now even if you are well:

The situation is moving forward rapidly and we will endeavour to post an update frequently on our facebook page and website.

We fully appreciate that many of you are acutely concerned by the present situation please be assured that we will support you with advice and if necessary consultation at this time.
