Information on Covid Vaccination Passports

Please do not contact us to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate - we will not be able to provide any standard document.  International certification standards have not yet been agreed.  The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so.  They are also working with the other UK nations and the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel.  As part of this, they are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their Covid vaccination status direct.


MIA - Minor Injuries Assessment Service

In September 2020 this new service was launched in Forth Valley to provide quicker, more convenient treatment for minor injuries and avoid overcrowding to help keep staff and patients safe. Anyone with a minor injury is now being asked to call MIA – the new Minor Injuries Assessment service on 111 from 8.30 am to 9.00 pm, seven days a week.  Patients will then be offered a video assessment so they can quickly access clinical advice or an appointment in either Stirling or Larbert so they don’t have to wait to be seen when they attend.  Find out more ➡️ https://nhsforthvalley.com/call-mia-new-service-offers-qui…/
