Langabhat Medical Practice is to close three of its surgeries this week (Monday 16 March) due to staff shortages and in response to Coronavirus.

Uig, Bernera and Gravir surgeries will close, with GP appointments available by phone only. Receptionists will take a message and the GP will call patients back.

Prescriptions for all patients will temporarily need to be collected in Leurbost, allowing 72 hours (three days) between ordering and collecting a prescription.

The practice has also said that all forthcoming nurse appointments are being reviewed and patients will be contacted over the next few days.
