Changes to Access as a result of COVID-19.

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

The practice remains 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 appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.

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.

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.

PUBLIC HOLIDAY

THE SURGERY WILL BE CLOSED ON MONDAY 3RD AUGUST FOR A PUBLIC HOLIDAY.  THIS WILL BE COVERED BY AN OOH SERVICE.  PLEASE CALL 111 SHOULD YOU REQUIRE MEDICAL ATTENTION. IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY PLEASE DIAL 999.

When We Are Closed

NHS 24 triage all out of hours calls. If appropriate, calls are passed to the Doctors who participate in a rota for ‘Out-of-Hours’ calls in the well-equipped Primary Care Emergency Centre at Raigmore.

The doctor may invite the patient to attend the centre if this is appropriate.

Please phone the usual practice number 01463 811200 to contact the ‘Out-of Hours’ Service.

NHS 24 phone 111

This is the new 24-hour health service which has round the clock health advice and support from highly trained and experienced nurses. You should feel free to use this service even when the Practice is open.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
