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.

FLU and COVID-19 booster IMMUNISATIONS

As you are aware the practice will again not be carrying out you flu immunisations this year. Please do not call the practice to make flu appointments

Flu Call Centre –  0345 337 9899,    Email – Gram.flu-info@nhs.scot

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.

It is important that the date for your travel appointment is as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
