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.

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

www.nhs24.com

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.
