Welcome to Cramond Medical Practice
Since the pandemic health services must operate differently to protect everyone. It's important to maintain safe infection control and minimise unnecessary physical contact. This means there are now more ways for you to access care from the practice.
What has Changed?
All appointments are being triaged. This helps keep you safe and makes sure that those who need to be seen in person are prioritised. We will see everyone in person who needs to be seen.
What is Triage?
This is an assessment to decide, with your agreement, whether it is best for you to be:
• Seen in person, or
• Given advice over the phone or via video consultation, or
• Helped by another healthcare provider such as a community pharmacist, physiotherapist, dentist or optician.
Why do our Receptionists Ask Questions?
Our reception staff are a vital part of the health care team and are there to triage enquires.
You don’t have to tell them anything that makes you uncomfortable, however they
can help you get the most appropriate appointment as quickly as possible. All the information they handle is treated confidentially.
Please be Patient
Our health services are under enormous pressure, but we are open and here if needed. Please work together with us to make sure you get the right care, in the right place, at the right time by the appropriate health professional for your needs. Thank you.
