In 2017, the Scottish Government and the Scottish General Practitioners Committee (SGPC) agreed vaccinations would move away from a model based on GP delivery to one based on NHS Board delivery through dedicated teams.

There followed the significant work around the COVID-19 vaccination program that is ongoing.

Clinics will again be set up in a number of locations across Grampian within secondary schools and community spaces such as sports halls, churches and any other large venues that can allow for social distancing. Measures will be put in place to ensure health and safety is priority.”

The www.nhsinform.scot website will have information about eligible groups for both Flu and COVID-19 boosters when this information is released.

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or can be downloaded here Self Certification Certificate

If after the 7 days you are still not fit to return to work, you must contact the surgery as you may need to make an appointment to see a GP. If requesting a certificate by phone PLEASE allow 48 hours for its completion.

 

Advice for employees

Even though your employer should take every care to look after your health and safety, you should also consider what you can do to look after yourself at work and return quickly, and safely, after an injury or ill health. More information can be found here
