We are very aware of how patient many of you h ave been with us the last 22 months, it has not been easy and we do understand your frustration and are trying our best to serve all of you.
We do however continue to struggle with staffing issues and for various reasons are very low in the run up to and throughout the festive season.
Please bear this in mind if contacting the practice and consider whether your problem might be best managed by someone else in the healthcare team.
Pharmacies, opticians and dentists will all have opening hours available throughout this month. And further information on self-help can be found on nhsinform.scot.
Please remember that you need to self isolate and book a PCR test if you develop a new cough, fever or changee in your sense of taste or smell. This needs a PCR test, not a lateral flow test and you can book this at nhsinform.scot or by phoning 119.
We will not tolerate abusive behaviour towards our reception team who are doing their very best to help all of us.
We wish all patients and community a health and happy Festive Season.

DR WALLACE - RETIREMENT FROM PRACTICE - DECEMBER 2021
Dr Wallace has decided to retire completely from the practice at the end of the year. He retired as Senior Partner last April - just at the beginning of the Pandemic. His original plan was to continue as a salaried GP - for a while, but has now decided the time is right to go. We will miss him very much but are grateful for you 30+ years of service to the practice.
Following new Scottish guidelines, and due to the rise in Covid cases all those attending healthcare settings in Grampian should now wear a fluid resistant surgical mask (ie the blue medical masks you see all the NHS wearing). These should be worn for the duration of the visit to the practice unless otherwise instructed.
This includes children from 5 and above.
Thank you for your continued co-operation.
