About Atrium

From Monday 13th December 2021 the surgery will be closed  between 1pm and 2pm. This is in line with many local practices. We will only be able to deal with emergencies during this time via option 2 on the phone. You will still be able to leave a request for a prescription via option 1, as normal (no repeat medication requests please).

Flu & Covid Vaccinations

Flu & Covid vaccinations for the 2021 season have been taken over by Lanarkshire Health Board in their entirety. If you are eligible for the Flu or Covid vaccine, you will be sent a letter direct from the Health Board with an appointment for a local vaccination centre (i.e. Airdrie Town Hall). If you are unable to make the appointment, please call the telephone number on the letter to re-schedule.   Any queries regarding Covid or Flu vaccinations should be directed to 0800 030 8013. Unfortunately we have no control over the process this year, so are unable to assist with any specific queries.
