The Flu vaccine is for everyone aged 50 and over and those in at risk groups. We will be delivering both the flu vaccine and the Covid booster at the same time. The covid booster cannot be given less than 24 weeks from the 2nd dose.
Therefore we will be holding clinics on the following dates and will be in contact to book appointments over the coming weeks.

The majority of General Practices will not be vaccinating their own patients. This service will be delivered by the Health Boards at central locations. However as a practice we have decided that it is the best interests of our patients to offer this service in house.
All adults in Scotland should now have received their first COVID-19 vaccine appointment. If not please register at ➡ nhsinform.scot/vaccineregistration
to get it sent to you by text or email or call 0800 030 8013

We have all had to learn to live and work differently during the COVID 19 Pandemic. We thank all our patients for their understanding and support during this time. We have had to learn and do the majority of our work over the telephone and using email to help deliver primary medical care to our patients. This has resulted in lengthy waits to get through to us on the telephone and likewise for us to get back to patients. We are continuing to see patients both at the surgery and visit the housebound as needed.
We will continue to re-assess our service and make changes for the better. We welcome feedback but please provide this via post or email.
We are happy to receive requests for prescriptions via our Practice email:
Please see 'quick links' for our latest news letter for more information on the practice.
Thank you for your cooperation during this pandemic.
