COVID-19 Update – 10th September 2021

 Due to severe staff shortages, you may experience a longer than usual waiting time when phoning the service. 

Physical distancing and face coverings are still required at health care settings across Scotland. Therefore restricted services are still in place including appointment only clinics, to continue to protect the public and staff. 

Please be aware that we have only a small number of Coil or Implant appointments at present, if you have tried to book online and have been unable to do so, it means there are no appointments available and we will not be able to provide any via telephone either. We apologise for this inconvenience and ask that you continue to try and book this appointment online.

Please view Sandyford's full COVID-19 statement and COVID- 19 service information page which is updated regularly. You must not attend for an appointment if you have signs of COVID or have been in contact with someone in the last 14 days who has.
