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.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
