Flu Vaccine - its not too late!

Flu vaccination - if you have not yet received the flu vaccination and are in one of the eligible groups please contact the Practice to book. There are mop up clinics still running and patients are advised to be vaccinated as early as possible in the season.  We expect our stocks of vaccines to last until the end of January so please contact reception to book before then.

Think you may have a urinary tract infection? If you are female and between the ages of 18 and 65 then you can go to your Pharmacy for treatment without an appointment. There is no need to take a sample and they can prescribe a course of antibiotics just like the GP.  Patients contacting the surgery may be directed to Pharmacy rather than treated here.  Please note this is not suitable for those who are allergic to Trimethoprim  or have recurrent symptoms - Pharmacy First!

Bowel Screening - Detect Cancer Early

Did you know that Bowel Cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland after lung and breast cancer.   Every year almost 4,000 people are diagnosed with the disease.  

The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme invites all men and women in Scotland between the ages of 50 and 74 for screening every two years.  

We would like to encourage you to return the test if you receive an invitation - it only takes a few minutes of your time every 2 years.   

For more information on the programme, please check out this website www.bowelscreening.scot.nhs.uk/   

Early signs are not always noticeable
but
early detection = 90% chance of successful treatment.
