Access Support Cards ( posted on Jan 10, 2018 )

 

 

NHS A&A have introduced voluntary access support cards for patients who have additional support needs due to a diisability or long term condition.

 

While some disabilities may be visible, many are hidden but can still affect your ability to benefit from your appointment when attending hospitals or medical practices.

 

Some examples of when you may need a card are: If you have a visual impairment but do not use a guide dog or cane, or if you have a hearing impairment and may struggle to hear your name being called out in a busy surgery.

 

These cards are now available from the Front Reception Desk.

 

 

For more Information on Access Support Cards please see Our Documents.

NHSSCOTLAND IS IMPROVING THE WAY IT USES INFORMATION FROM YOUR GP PATIENT RECORD ( posted on Mar 30, 2017 )

 

NHSSCOTLAND is improving the way it uses information from your GP patient record. The improved service is called Scottish Primary Care Information Resource (SPIRE) and has been developed to help GPs, the NHS in Scotland and researchers plan for Scotland's health and care needs.

 

If you have any questions about SPIRE or want to know more about how we manage confidential information, visit spire.scot or click www.spire.scot. Alternatively, call NHS Inform on 0800 22 44 88.

 

 

If you are happy for NHS Scotland to use information from your GP patient records,  you do not need to do anything. It will happen automatically.

 

If you do not want information from your GP patient records used in this way, ask for an opt-out form from the practice.

Have you ever wanted to dip into a health project by choice according to your area of interest? Now you can! Go to "Our Documents" on the left hand menu and download the Scottish Health Council (SHC) form. As you will see, the SHC, whose membership work with matters of interest to our Patient Participation Group, will note your area of interest and may invite you to get involved in and feed back on the planning for services in which you are interested.

 

This is another great way to add something back to health and social service provision. If you do get involved, please would you let the practice know (via "Send Us Feedback" on the left hand menu and, along with the Patient Participation Group, we'd love to see how things are going.
