Noticeboard

Over the past 2 weeks we have had to operate an emergency service only due to critical levels of staff absence across all teams due to COVID illness, this has included turning off econsult. We would like to thank our patients’ for their understanding and support over this time. By operating this system we have been able to continue to offer urgent care to those who required it.  
Whilst we are still significantly impacted by staff absences due to COVID illness, and by no means back to usual staffing levels, we are hoping to offer greater accessibility by re-opening e-consult on Tuesday 5th April. We would still request that this is used for urgent and emergency health problems currently, whilst we are not back to full staffing levels. Your local pharmacist continues to be a great first port of call for minor illness, and they are able to treat by prescription through the pharmacy first scheme.

In 2017, the Scottish Government and the Scottish General Practitioners Committee (SGPC) agreed vaccinations would move away from a model based on GP delivery to one based on NHS Board delivery through dedicated teams.

There followed the significant work around the COVID-19 vaccination program that is ongoing.

Clinics will again be set up in a number of locations across Grampian within secondary schools and community spaces such as sports halls, churches and any other large venues that can allow for social distancing. Measures will be put in place to ensure health and safety is priority.”

The www.nhsinform.scot website will have information about eligible groups for both Flu and COVID-19 boosters when this information is released.

The practice aims to provide high standard of care to our patients at Elgin Health Centre.

In order to respond efficiently to patient’s requests and clinical concerns, the practice advises that patients outline the nature of their query using the e-consult platform. This will enable an experienced clinician to offer a timely response that may include advice, a prescription or a telephone/ video/ face to face appointment with a member of the clinical team. This may also include an appointment for a clinical investigation prior to an appointment where appropriate.
