Noticeboard

It has come to our notice that some patients think there is a shortage of Flu Vaccines. We would just like to confirm that this is NOT the case. We have sufficient supply of the vaccine and our main clinic will go ahead on Saturday the 6th of October. We welcome you to contact us and make your appointment.

The practice would like to welcome our new GP Dr Mhairi Findlay. She will start consulting from the week commencing 10th September.

From 23rd April 2018 the open surgery in the afternoon will run from 2pm to 3pm.

See consulting times under the "opening hours" tab to see when each doctor is consulting

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

flu vaccinationsFlu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.
