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.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
