Test and Protect

Help protect Scotland from coronavirus by downloading the free Protect Scotland app. As part of NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect, it alerts you if you’ve been in close contact with another app user who tests positive, breaking the chains of transmission.

If you’re contacted by the NHS and told you may be at risk of coronavirus, you need to stay at home for 14 days to stop the spread.

Know who to turn to during COVID-19

National Health Service – Knowing Who to Turn Too

The NHS is here for you and have produced a very helpful document outlining the services you should contact for health advice during Covid19. Going directly to the person with the appropriate skills helps you to a speedier recovery and makes sure all NHS services are run efficiently.

In a medical emergency, this is when you or some else is seriously ill, injured, or someone’s life is at risk please dial 999. 

If you need urgent health advice when your GP practice or dentist is closed, you should call NHS 24 on 111. You should only call NHS 24 if you are too ill to wait until your GP practice reopens. NHS 24 cannot prescribe medications or book you an appointment with your GP. They can advise you on what to do or book an emergency doctor appointment at your primary care emergency centre if the nurse practitioner thinks it is necessary.
