Flu clinics have started

It’s time to get serious about flu. Last year thousands of people were hospitalised due to flu. That’s why this year’s flu vaccine is important if you've an existing health condition, are pregnant, are over 65 or work in healthcare. The best way to protect yourself is to get the free seasonal flu vaccine.

To make an appointment for your flu vaccine, please contact your local surgery on 731221 (Aultbea) or 712229 (Gairloch) or drop in and ask to speak to a receptionist.

For more information on the flu vaccine, visit www.readyforflu.scot or phone NHS Inform on 0800 22 44 88.

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.

Video link - registering for online patient services

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.

The Patient Services website can be accessed from:

www.patient-services.co.uk
