Noticeboard

We currently have 2 partners off work long term and there is a lack of available locum doctors. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused, we are all working extremely hard and are hoping things will soon improve.


No routine appointments will be available and GPs and nurses will only see patients with an urgent problem.


SPIRE


NHSScotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records. SPIRE is a service that will allow small amounts of information from GP practice records to be used to help doctors' surgeries, NHSScotland and the Scottish Government to improve care and plan services, and to help researchers to learn more from patient information held at GP practices.

A new campaign is underway to inform patients across Scotland of the benefits of the service, and the confidential and secure way in which GP patient records will be used to help plan and improve health care services.

You have a choice about your patient record being used in this way. To find out more go to spire.scot or call NHS Inform on 0800 22 44 88.
