NHS Fife can confirm some disruption to services at North Glen Medical Practice in Glenrothes after a number of practice staff were required to isolate following contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.
The practice remains open, however, it may be necessary to cancel a small number of routine appointments in the coming days for staffing reasons. Those patients affected are being contacted directly by the practice to rearrange their appointment.
A very small number of patients, less than 5, are being advised to self-isolate as a precaution following limited contact with the confirmed case.
There is no disruption to repeat prescriptions at this stage and those requiring urgent review or assessment can continue to do by submitting an online consult form or contacting the practice by telephone if they do not have internet access or are unable to complete a form.
A further update will be issued on the situation later this week.
It is important that anyone experiencing the well-established symptoms of COVID-19 should immediately self-isolate and arrange a test using the NHS inform website at: www.nhsinform.scot or by calling 0800 028 2816.
A local online support hub has been created to provide information on testing for COVID-19 and updates on the pandemic. Visit: www.nhsfife.org/coronavirus.
