Donation of hand sanitiser.

March 26th, 2020 by Dr Wheeler.

A big thank you to the North Uist distillery who have donated several bottles of hand sanitiser to the practice in light of the current coronavirus situation.

Great way to re purpose their alcohol stocks during this difficult time – much appreciated (and smells great)!

Disruption caused by Covid 19

March 5th, 2020 by Dr Wheeler.

You will have seen a lot in the news about the Covid 19 virus which is starting to spread.

There have been no local cases yet – but we are keen to minimise spread so are starting to take precautions ahead of time.

If you are booking an appointment with a doctor or nurse in the next few weeks you will need to do so over the phone – and will be asked a couple of screening questions to make sure that we deal with you in the safest way possible.

During this time online appointment booking will need to be suspended – but this will be reintroduced as soon as the situation has settled.

In the meantime – please do NOT attend the surgery if you have any respiratory symptoms or fever, and please tell us if you have travelled abroad in the previous 2 weeks when booking your appointment.

Nurse appointments online.

February 11th, 2020 by Dr Wheeler.

We are extending our online booking facility to let you book some nurse appointments online (previously only GP slots were available).

Please try booking your next nurse appointment with your usual login and get back to us if you have any problems.

The new appointments should be live from the 24th February.

Self referral forms.

December 12th, 2019 by Dr Wheeler.

Did you know that you can self refer to a range of services without having to come into the practice?

Feel free to download any of the forms from here and request to see a physiotherapist, OT, dietician, pain management expert or podiatrist.
