Nethertown Medical Practice in Dunfermline will temporarily be operating a reduced service after a number of practice staff were asked to isolate following close contact with an individual positive for COVID-19.

It has not been necessary to postpone any appointments at this stage and patients with prearranged appointments are asked to attend as originally planned.

New routine appointments cannot be booked at this time, however, those patients requiring urgent review or assessment will continue to be managed by phone, video link or in person as appropriate.

The practice would like to thank patients for their continued patience in the coming days. A further update will be issued on Monday 08 February 2021. 

Anyone experiencing the well-established symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of how mild, should immediately self-isolate and arrange a test using the NHS inform website  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:
