New Scottish Cervical Screening Campaign

A new campaign has been developed to grab the attention of young women aged 25-35, and start breaking down some barriers to attending.

DON'T IGNORE YOUR NEXT SMEAR INVITE AND IF YOU MISSED YOUR LAST SMEAR TEST, CONTACT YOUR GP PRACTICE TO FIND A TIME THAT SUITS YOU.

BOWEL SCREENING

All men and women aged 50–74 are invited for bowel screening. Bowel screening involves taking a simple test at home every two years.

We strongly encourage you to take this simple test. In Scotland the screening programme will prevent at least 150 deaths from bowel cancer each year

SELF CHECK-IN SCREEN

Why not bypass the queue and check yourself in for your appointment when you come to the surgery?  The check in screen is situated in the waiting room and is easy to use.

APPOINTMENTS

DOCTORS have a number oif different appointments.

ROUTINE - These are for non-urgent or on-going conditions. These can be booked uo to 4 weeks in advance.

SAME DAY ATTENTION - We have appointments set aside each day for patients with ACUTE conditions that cannot wait for a routine appointment. Please note that the Doctor who deals with these appointments on the afternoon is also the on-call Doctor for urgent hosecalls and you may have to wait. These are busy surgeries and we would ask that you restrict your request to the acute issue that has brought you down.

SATURDAY MORNING - One surgery per week designed for those who work and struggle to come dowm during the week. These appointments must be pre-booked in advance and access to the Practice will only be given to patients with appointments as the Practice door will be closed.

Please be realistic about how many problems your GP can SAFELY and PRPERLY deal with in a 10 minute appontment.

We do ask people with minor illnesses such as sore throats and colds to see their pharmacist for advice rather than their GP.

On booking your appointment you may be asked to give a few details. This will help us to direct you to the most appropriate health care proffessional in the practice which may not be the doctor.
