COVID-19 Community Pathway Update
The Scottish Government has launched a campaign to highlight the closure of the COVID-19 Community Pathway from Friday 1 April 2022.
The COVID-19 Community Pathway was first set up in March 2020 in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. Following a review which saw a decline in the number of people using the service since the end of December 2021, the decision was made to close the Pathway from Friday 1 April 2022. From this date patients who are unwell with COVID-19 symptoms and call NHS 24 during the in-house period (i.e. Monday – Friday, 8am - 6pm) will be advised to contact their GP practice. 111 will continue to answer calls related to COVID-19 symptoms out of hours.
- From Friday 1 April, if you are unwell with COVID-19 symptoms and need medical advice contact your GP practice when open and only call 111 when your GP practice is closed
- From Friday 1 April, the 111 helpline will continue to answer calls related to COVID-19 symptoms when GP practices are closed
- The NHS Inform coronavirus webpage remains the fastest way to obtain the latest health advice and information. Visit nhsinform.scot/COVID-19
