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.

When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.

Hospital results

We are aware that in some areas, some hospital doctors have been instructing patients to contact their GP practice to find out hospital results.

Both the General Practitioner Committee and the Consultants Committee of the BMA agree this practice is potentially unsafe, and that the ultimate responsibility for ensuring that results are acted upon, rests with the person requesting the test.

Please contact the clinician or their secretaries at the hospital that arranged this test.
