Morvern Medical Centre
Covid Virus Crisis
For all advice on covid-19 virus please refer to NHS Corona Virus information web page which is regularly updated.
If you are concerned about Covid-19 symptoms and treatment call NHS on 111.
Please do not call or visit the GP surgery with covid symptoms.
If you are a visitor to Morvern then please read the following information sheets
- General information regarding COVID-19, accessing medicines and procedure to follow if a visitor develops symptoms whilst on holiday.
- 2. Specific instructions if access to healthcare is required whilst on holiday, other than COVID-19 symptoms.
I would like to request that individual health concerns are not posted on public pages, as it increases anxiety in the wider population and impacts on our workload in the practice. We are available by phone if you need more information or an explanation of the current best health advice.
Please also note that this page and the Morvern Medical Centre Facebook page is for information only. We share posts to the Locahaline Group page but we would appreciate if no comments are left on our posts as again we do not have the time to deal with multiple social media avenues.
The GP dispensary at Morvern Medical Centre can only provide routine repeat medication for permanently registered patients. We will endeavour to provide emergency medication and treatment for temporary patients but would ask that these people source routine repeat medication prescriptions from their registered GP practice and arrange to collect medication from community Pharmacies in Fort William.
Please note that all pharmacies are under extreme pressure just now and may take 3-4 days to process prescriptions and we ask all patients not to stockpile medication.
Patients who are registered with a GP in England may be able to access postal pharmacy service, but I do not think this service is available in Scotland at present.
Lochaber Sensory Care
Lochaber Sensory Care are now unable to visit the surgery for the foreseeable future.
They are still open for business and can offer support and advice, see Locahaber Sensory Care poster
