Noticeboard

CORONAVIRUS

If you are unwell and have recently travelled to an area affected by Coronavirus or met someone who has, please DO NOT visit the surgery.  Please call 111 who will then advise you.  If you are advised to contact us, please call and tell the receptionist of your possible Coronavirus contact.

NAMED GP

Everyone in the practice now has a named GP.  If you are unsure who yours is then please ask at reception, but please remember that you can still see whichever GP you prefer.

CCTV

Closed Circuit Television is installed at the practice premises for the purpose of staff, patient and premises security. Cameras are located at various places on the premises, and images from the camera are recorded.  The practice follows the recommendations issued by the Data Protection Commissioner in accordance with powers under Section 51 of the 1998 Data protection Act. 

Accessible Information Standard

The Accessible information standard is a new law to make sure that people who have a disability or sensory loss are given information they can easily read or understand.  Please inform us if you have any communication support needs.  

For further information about the standard and a form you can fill in to let us know if you have communication support needs in the column on the right hand side of our website under the Accessible Information heading.

Travel and Vaccinations

Using the NHS 'fit for travel' website - http://www.fitfortravel.scot.nhs.uk/ we provide NHS vaccinations which are recommended and required for safe travel to your chosen destination.  

We are able to provide the following NHS vaccinations at no cost to the patient.

  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Diphtheria, Tetanus & Polio (as a combined vaccine)

To enable us to assess the vaccinations you may require, you should complete a Travel Questionnaire at least 6 weeks before your departure.  This gives us time to assess your needs and book you in for an appointment if needed.  You can download a copy of the Travel Questionnaire

The completed questionnaire should be return to the Practice as soon as possible and we will contact you to book any appointments necessary.  We hold most NHS travel vaccinations in stock and so we should be able to administer them during your visit.  If a course is required, it may be necessary to visit us again for subsequent vaccination.

We should have a record of any vaccinations you have received on the NHS but may not have information about private immunisations.  Therefore please bring any information you have along with your questionnaire.
