Covid 19 vaccination programme

We are continuing to arrange vaccination clinics for COVID-19. Appointments are being offered based on the JCVI criteria (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) and we will contact you by phone or letter when you are eligible.

Changes to Access as a result of COVID-19.

This GP Practice is currently restricting access for the safety of all patients and staff.

We remain open for all essential primary care problems but on the advice of Health Protection Scotland we have put in place a process whereby everyone is screened by telephone prior to being seen.

All patients will still have access to the care they require.

We understand that for some patients, it is frustrating that we cannot offer face to face appointments as easily as in the past. We are being guided by Scottish Government in how we offer appointments. For further information please click here.

PLEASE TRY TO PHONE OR USE THE ONLINE REPEAT PRESCRIPTION REQUEST SERVICE. WE WOULD APPRECIATE NO REPEAT SLIPS BEING HANDED TO THE SURGERY. WE WILL BE CONTINUING WITH OUR DISPENSING SERVICE AS USUAL.

Please allow 4 working days after requesting a prescription before coming to collect it.

SCREENING APPOINTMENTS

Cervical screening, breast screening, diabetic retinopathy and bowel screening appointments are now being sent out.  If you have any queries with regard to these screening programmes please contact  NHS inform on 0800 22 44 88 or contact a Screening Centre.

COVID 19 VACCINE INFORMATION

Covid 19 vaccination programme

As you will be aware the Government has set out the priority vaccine schedule and vaccines are now being allocated to surgeries to enable us to vaccinate our patients.

The staff are currently working on our clinics and we will be able to organise further clinics in priority order as the vaccines for these groups are allocated to us. 

We are aware that a large number of our patients will wish to take part in this programme and we will be in touch with all patients as we work our way through our patient group lists.

Please be aware that there are some bogus emails being sent out.  A staff member from the surgery will be in touch with each group of patients as we schedule clinics, so please do NOT reply to emails.  They have not come from us, or from Public Health.

We are grateful for your patience and would like to reassure you all that we are working on this as quickly as we are able.

Thank you from all of the Practice team.
Next clinic will be Saturday 26th June at North Kessock Community Hall. Staff are contacting all patients in the next groups 18-39 year old. This will be the Pfizer vaccine and it is very important that if you book an appointment please do attend as the vaccines are allocated on the number of bookings confirmed.
Car parking is limited and we would be grateful if you could utilise any spaces in the village car park areas to avoid congestion at the hall.
Thank you in advance.
