FLU VACCINATIONS 2021-2022
The practice will shortly begin the Flu Vaccination programme for the year 2021-2022 . The Practice will be responsible for vaccinating all patients aged 70 years and above as well as all patients aged between 16 -70 years, who are considered to be Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (C.E.V.). All other eligible patients will be vaccinated at centrally based clinics outwith the the Practice.
All vaccinations for the Flu will be by invitation only. This means the Practice will contact you and make an appointment at a set date and time for you to receive your vaccine. Those patients being vaccinated centrally will also receive an invitation to attend directly from the central vaccinating team.
COVID-19 VACCINATION BOOSTER PROGRAMME
The Scottish Government have advised us that all Covid-19 Booster injections will be done in centralised clinics out with the Practice. Patients should wait for an invitation to attend a clinic. Please note that with the appearance of the Omicron Varient it is vital that patients take up their invite for a Covid-19 Booster.
ACCESSING THE PRACTICE
Covid-19 Restrictions still apply to the Practice at this time 15/12/2021. This means that only those patients who are asked to attend the practice, should attend in person. Masks must continue to be worn in the Practice and hand sanitizers should be used. Please do not attend the practice unless you have been asked to by a member of staff.
The Practice has seen an explosion in demand for appointments with GP's and Nurses. This is the same across the whole of the UK and all GP surgeries are having trouble keeping up with demand. Please bear with us at this time, each and every morning the staff and GP's in the Red Practice try to give the best possible service that our resources allow. We understand the frustration our patients are experiencing and will continue to do our utmost to work on this. We will initially offer a telephone consultation with a GP which can be amended to a Face to Face consultation by the GP. We are now offer "book ahead" appointments for those matters that do not need to be dealt with on the same day. Please advise our staff if this would suit you when calling.
