Noticeboard

ALL OVER AGE 65 FLU ADVICE - you will receive a letter from the health board with your appointment. If your appointment does not suit please follow advice below. Please do not contact the practice for any information regarding over 65 FLU. For any further advice contact the number below.

The number to call is 0141 201 4180, and the line is open from 10 am until 4 pm. Given the number of people over 65 who are eligible for flu immunisation, the line is extremely busy. Patients should not contact individual Health Centres for this either by phone or in person as they are not able to action such requests, and it increases pressure on lines and / or creates additional footfall.

 

Patients phoning the central number are also advised that if it suits them to do so they can email adult.flu@ggc.scot.nhs.uk , and every effort will be made to offer an alternative appointment.

 

They should include in their email

·       their full name,
·       CHI (if known),
·       date of birth,
·       original appointment details (date and venue),
·       if they wish an alternative appointment
·       and importantly their mobile number which will be used to text their new appointment details to.

 

The practice will close Monday - Friday between 12.30pm & 1.30pm. If you call due to a medical emergency your will be redirected to our standby mobile number.

Register for Online Services to book, view, cancel appointments and order your prescriptions.  Please ensure we have your current mobile number and you will be sent reminders of appointments.

Routine appointments can be booked up to 6 weeks in advance

 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
