Important Patient Message Updated 11 Sep 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 do not have the vaccine for children yet.
To start with, "walk in" Saturday flu JAB clinics, for all patients over 65 or with long term conditions over the age of 18, registered unpaid carers and pregnant women ONLY, will take place at the surgery on Saturdays 27 September and 4 October, doors open 0830 to 1215. There is no need to book. Details of how we are going to manage other parts of the vaccination programme will appear here when available.
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.
