Minor Ailment Service - The Role of Community Pharmacy
You may not necessarily need a GP appointment. Speak to your Community Pharmacist first who can provide advice and remedies for a huge range of ailments. Wart treatment, calpol and head lice treatment can be provided without the need to see your GP.
Children and some adults can be provided with a range of treatments for which there is no charge.
Drop into your local Community Pharmacy to see what services they can provide.
Staff Raised £500 plus for Highland Hospice in the 5K
Paula, Anne, Kerry, Karen and Charlotte took part in the 5K in March at the Inverness Half Marathon and Fun Race, raising just over £500 for Highland Hospice. A big thanks goes to colleagues, family, friends and patients who offered support. Whilst we raised the money, Dr Graham Bee did the hard work, completing the Half Marathon in 10th place!
Trying to get an appointment? - 37 missed appointments in one week.
In just one week we lost 37 appointments. This is because patients made the appointment and then failed to attend without making a cancellation. Please ensure you cancel unwanted appointments which can then be offered to someone else.
Easter Closure - Friday 14th April
This year we will close at 6pm on Thursday 13th April and re-open at 8am on Monday 17th April. During the time we are closed, if you need urgent medical attention please call NHS24 on 111.
Dr Helen Macdonald left the practice at the end of February. She continues to work in the out of hours service and the family planning clinic. Dr Graham Bee, who was our Registrar last year and has continued to provide some locum sessions, will be taking up employment with the Practice at the beginning of May. This brings us back to a full quota of doctors; Drs Calum Urquhart, Shona McClure, Karen Duncan, Toby Gilbertson and Graham Bee.
We will be joined in April by a Foundation Year 2 doctor, Dr Bhaveek Chohan, who will be at the practice for a four month period as part of his two year post qualification foundation programme.
