Primary care for the next generation
The Scottish Government's vision for the future of primary care services is for multi-disciplinary teams, made up of a variety of health professionals working together to support people in their community and give GPs more time to spend with patients in specific need of their expertise. This means that the GP will not necessarily be the first person that patients see or speak to when accessing primary care.
The SG is running a patient survey which seeks patient opinions on how GP and other primary care services should be delivered in the future. They would welcome your thoughts by running a survey to help them answer the question "What does primary care look like for the next generation?"
More details are available from the SG website:
The survey is available from:
https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/parliamentscotprimary-nhs-care-survey/ and is open until Tuesday 30 April 2019.

Online Patient Services available
Patients registered permanently with the Practice may register for our online Patient Services. From any web browser, at any time patients can then:
- Book regular GP or Advanced Nurse Practitioner appointments
- Cancel any appointments (including with a practice nurse)
- View your list of authorised repeat prescription medication
- Request repeat prescription medication
This is a new online service which provides additional functionality from what has been available previously from the Practice.
To access Patient Services patients will need to register using an email address that is unique to them. We will also need to verify your identity. The easiest way to register for Vision Online Services is to visit your local surgery and speak to a receptionist.

To confirm, the services available are booking & cancelling appointments plus requesting repeat medication. In Scotland there is no current facility for viewing online the patient summary medical record. This and other services may be added in the future.
Our previous “order your repeat prescription online” system which worked via email alone has now been closed down. Patients who previously used that system should contact their local surgery to register for the new service, as above.
