eConsult opening times

As outlined in the recent 'Message from the Practice' (available in 'Latest News') we are currently working to improve our use of triage.  Part of this involves a reduction of the hours the eConsult service will be available.  The service will now be available between 8 and 11am Monday to Friday.  Patients should use this as their first point of contact for routine medical conditions or administrative requests.  As always more urgent matters will be dealt with on the day by the duty team.  The Practice is also developing new Triage streams that should improve access for all patients and we will keep you informed of developments here. 

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.

My child has a fever

Advise for Parents and Carers When Your Child Has a Fever

 

    • Look for signs of dehydration including poor urine output, dry mouth, sunken fontanelle (“soft spot”), absence of tears, sunken eyes, and poor overall appearance.

    • Offer regular fluids (if breastfeeding, continue this as normal) and encourage a higher intake if signs of dehydration develop.

    • Dress the child appropriately for their surroundings, with the aim of preventing overheating or shivering.

    • Avoid using tepid sponging (using cool water) to cool the child.

    • Check the child regularly, including during the night.

    • Keep the child away from nursery or school while the fever persists, and notify the nursery or school of the illness.

Seek medical help if:

    • Your child is getting dehydrated.
    • Your child has a fit.
    • Your child develops a non-blanching rash.
    • The fever lasts longer than 5 days.
    • Your child is becoming more unwell.
