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.

Availability of Doctors

Due to outside commitments such as the requirement to undertake continuous professional development, be involved in NHS project meetings and citations to attend court hearings, etc, doctors may be absent from the practice, often at short notice. Locums are sometimes employed in the practice to cover these periods.

Doctors In Training

We are recognised as a training practice to teach doctors the skills of General practice. These doctors are fully qualified and have usually worked in hospitals for at least three years. We are also a recognised teaching practice for Medical Students.

As part of the training we sometimes make video recordings of the consultation for discussion with small groups of doctors only. Your consent would always be asked for before any such recordings were made and you would be able to withdraw consent at the end of the consultation if you changed your mind. If you feel uncomfortable about video recordings please let us know before the consultation. It will not affect the consultation.

We are grateful for your co-operation in the important work of teaching future GPs.
