eConsult opening times
As outlined in the recent 'Message from the Practice' (available in 'Latest News') we are currently working to improve our use of triage. Part of this involves a reduction of the hours the eConsult service will be available. The service will now be available between 8 and 11am Monday to Friday. Patients should use this as their first point of contact for routine medical conditions or administrative requests. As always more urgent matters will be dealt with on the day by the duty team. The Practice is also developing new Triage streams that should improve access for all patients and we will keep you informed of developments here.

In 2017, the Scottish Government and the Scottish General Practitioners Committee (SGPC) agreed vaccinations would move away from a model based on GP delivery to one based on NHS Board delivery through dedicated teams.
There followed the significant work around the COVID-19 vaccination program that is ongoing.
Clinics will again be set up in a number of locations across Grampian within secondary schools and community spaces such as sports halls, churches and any other large venues that can allow for social distancing. Measures will be put in place to ensure health and safety is priority.”
The www.nhsinform.scot website will have information about eligible groups for both Flu and COVID-19 boosters when this information is released.
