Welcome to Culloden Surgery

Christmas & New Year - Closures and Repeat Prescription Requests

We will be closed on the 27th & 28th December 2021 and on the 3rd & 4th January 2022.  On these days all telephone calls will be directed to the out of hours service so urgent medical matters can be attended to.

In order to prepare for Christmas, please order your repeat prescriptions early to ensure you have adequate supplies over the holiday period.  You should allow 5 working days for a prescription to be processed, sent to pharmacy and be ready for collection.

Should you have a medical emergency on these days call 999.

New slots have been added to the portal for Inverness.

Patients in the following categories can book their COVID vaccine through the following link. They can also be booked through a portal which can be found here.  To access this portal you need to register or use the password you created when logging in to access your vaccine certificate.

The following patients are eligible to book an appointment:

  • Adults aged over 18
  • Clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
  • Adults aged 16-49 with underlying health conditions
  • Unpaid Carers aged 16 +

  • All children and young people aged 12 to 15 years should be offered a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at a minimum of 12 weeks from the first dose. The interval for this group (and 16-17s) may be reduced to at least 8 weeks in the future.

If you require your first dose or second dose you must phone the national helpline to book your appointment- 0800 030 8013 (unless a drop in-centre is available).

COVID RESTRICTIONS 

Despite COVID restrictions easing, the Scottish Government requires General Practice and other healthcare settings to have different infection control and physical distancing guidance to other places such as hospitality and shops.  This is to help reduce the risk to Practice staff and to people attending the Practice who may be at greater risk if they catch Covid 19.

The following rules still apply in General Practice:

  • wearing of face coverings by patients and the public (unless you are exempt)
  • physical distancing of 1 metre within waiting rooms
  • contact your Practice by telephone in the first instance rather than attending the surgery
  • wearing of PPE by staff
  • screening of all patients for Covid 19 symptoms

Please support your Practice team by complying with this guidance.
