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.
