DOCTORS:

We welcome patients and visitors to our practice website. We hope you find it useful!

SHINGLES AND PNEUMOCOCCAL VACCINE

Did you know that Shingles and Pneumococcal Vaccines are now available all year round.

Doctor Update - GP Shortage

We continue to advertise for a new GP and will keep patients informed through this website and the Practice. 

 

Currently this is having an impact on our appointments availability.  We are employing Locum GP's where available and those GP's who can, are covering some extra surgeries.  Unfortunately this may still mean a longer wait for an appointment than you are used to. 

 

Please use telephone consultations and our Nurses where possible.  We still have appointments on the day for acute illnesses. 

 

We hope this situation is resolved soon and thank you for your patience in the meantime.

 

 


 


Ayrshire Hospice Fundraiser

 

Lisa Cameron, Denise Mellon, Julie McLean, Clare Smith and Arran Wylie walked 13 miles in the Land O''Burns Starlight Walk on 21st May 2016 to raise funds for The Ayrshire Hospice.

Didn''t they do well!  Over £75,000 has been raised in total.  Well Done to all who took part.

Improving Communication Methods

101 Medical Practice currently use either telephone or letters by post to contact our patients.

 

We recognise that technology is used by increasing numbers of patients through personal computers, laptops and other mobile devices.

 

We are introducing Medical Messenger, which works in conjunction with our Patient System, EMIS.

 

Medical Messenger will continue our current service of texting patients reminding them of their appointment date and time.  However, a new facility will allow patients to text back if they need to cancel.

 

Medical Messenger will allow text message, email or letters by post to be used to communicate with patients.  Communications will not mention personal clinical information and will only be used for routine contact.

 

More information is available through our Practice Newsletter.

 

We will be working to engage with patients over forthcoming weeks and months and ask that if you are happy to be contacted by text or email that you provide us with your up-to-date mobile number and email address.

 

Traditional methods of letters by post will also continue when appropriate.

 

We wish to extend our communicative methods by embracing technology and reaching our patients using alternative methods as we continue to recognise our patients differing needs.
