Important Patient Message Updated 6 October 2014 - Seasonal Flu Vaccination Programme.
We have a large increase in the programme this year as we will be giving nasal vaccine to all children between the ages of 2 and 5 who are not attending school. However, we only have limited vaccine and will be calling eligible children as stocks allow. Please contact us ONLY if you want advice.
Some Practice Nurse appointments are now open for patients to book a jab for flu vaccine. This is for our patients over the age of 65, those over the age of 18 at risk, pregnant women and unpaid carers registered with us as such at the practice. Please call reception on 211993.
Important Patient Message 4 December 2013, updated 30 April 2014 - Bowel Screening Programme
Aged between 50 to 74 and wondering about bowel screening? Well, it may make a change from shopping on line to find out a bit more about this important test - and IT MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE. The uptake rate in Scotland for doing this simple, painless and free self test every 2 years is only a little over half - not exactly a pass mark! The practice is participating in a programme to boost the numbers, so COME ON KA11, GET TESTED. More information on 0800 012 1833 (free call) and at www.bowelscreening.scot.nhs.uk
Two more things you can do...
- We have a limited number of advice packs that we have managed to obtain for our patients on bowel screening. Use our "Send us Feedback" section in the left hand menu to send us your details and request one.
