Noticeboard

Seasonal Flu vaccination

The winter vaccination programme has started. If you are eligible for a free flu vaccine, you will get a letter from NHS Scotland. This will either give you an appointment date and time at one of the flu vaccination clinics in Lothian, or instruct you to make an appointment using an online portal.

If you are eligible for a COVID booster, you may get this at the same time as your flu jab, but this is not guaranteed, and you may have to attend two separate appointments.

You will not get your flu or COVID jabs at your GP practice. Please do not contact the surgery about your flu or COVID jab appointments.

If you have received a letter with an appointment that you are unable to attend, you can rearrange your appointment online at https://www.nhsinform.scot/flu-vaccine/invitations-and-appointments/rearrange-your-flu-vaccine-appointment.  Alternatively you can call the Lothian helpline on 0300 790 6296 for assistance with re-booking.

If you are housebound, your jabs will be given to you by the housebound team, and they will be in touch to arrange this.

Patient Rights and Responsibilities

Patients

 

We will treat every patient with courtesy, respect and confidentiality at all times.

 

Patients have a responsibility to treat doctors and practice staff with equal courtesy and respect.  Any patient who attends and appears to be under the influence of alcohol, may not be seen and may be asked to make another appointment.

 

We will inform you of the services we provide and how to access them and we will provide information to help you to stay healthy.

 

Please read this Practice Leaflet and also information on the website.

 

Our relationship with each patient is a very important one.  If, in exceptional circumstances, this relationship breaks down, it may be necessary to consider removing a patient from the practice list.

 

If you are unhappy with any aspect of the practice, please let us know.  You can either speak to a member of the practice staff or put a complaint in writing to the Practice Manager, Paula Tipton.
