Open Flu clinics will be held on Saturday 7th October and Saturday 4th November, 2017 between 9.00-12.00 noon.
Please note that children in "at risk" groups (under 13 yers) should not attend this clinic - these patients will be vaccinated on a different date. No prior bookings are necessary, appointments will be booked on the day by reception staff.
The surgery will be closed between 12.00-3.00pm on the afternoon of Friday 15th September and Thursday 14th December, 2017 for professional staff development.
Patients will still be able to get through to the Practice during these times for emergencies.
Appointment Time-Keeping – Please Help Us
We have become aware of an increase in patient late attendance for appointments. This places stress on practice resources and has an impact on waiting times for other patients who have attended on time.
If you attend late for an appointment, it is very likely you will be asked to re-appoint.
We appreciate that sometimes surgeries can run late, because an urgent situation has arisen or because some patients require more time with the GP/nurse. You would be offered the same courtesy, should you require it.
If you are continuously late for appointments, or very late in cancelling appointments, we will deem this to be a breakdown of doctor/patient relationship and you will be removed from our practice list.
We would appreciate your co-operation with this.
Bowel Screening Programme
Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland after lung and breast cancer. Every year, almost 4,000 people are diagnosed with the disease. The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme will invite all men and women in Scotland between the ages of 50 to 74 for screening every two years. We would strongly encourage you to participate in the screening programme if you are eligible to do so. Further information can be found on the Scottish Bowel Screening Programme website or via the helpline number 08000121833.
