Medical update


Residents in Perth and Kinross are being asked to provide their GP practice with up-to-date contact details.

GPs, hospitals and community teams are providing healthcare in new ways.

As more appointmen­ts are carried out by phone or video, and to help with contact tracing for the Test and Protect programme, it is more important than ever that health services have the correct contact details for patients.

People are asked to advise their GP practice of their current address and telephone numbers.

This will update national systems such as for screening and recall, and childhood immunisati­ons, as well as NHS Tayside, Scottish Ambulance Service and NHS 24 systems.
