Covid 19 vaccination programme

We have organised our first Covid vaccine clinic and this will be held on:-
SUNDAY 24th JANUARY in the NORTH KESSOCK COMMUNITY HALL
Our staff will be phoning all the patients who are over 80 as this is the first priority group to get vaccinated.
If you have not heard from us by Thursday 21st January, and you are over 80, and not housebound, please contact the surgery and the staff will book an appointment for you at the Sunday Clinic.
For those patients who are housebound and over 80, we are still awaiting confirmation of the details for you to get your vaccination at home.  Staff from the surgery will be in touch with you when these arrangements are confirmed.

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.

DUE TO A PROBLEM WITH DELIVERIES AND A NEW PROCESSING SYSTEM WE HAVE A DELAY IN PROCESSING PRESCRIPTIONS. THESE WILL NOW TAKE A MINIMUM OF 4 WORKING DAYS TO COMPLETE. WE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR PATIENCE.

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.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below: 

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
