Help protect yourself against Shingles
Shingles can be a very painful nerve and skin condition and is more common among older people. There is now a vaccine that can reduce your chance of getting shingles, or, if you do get shingles it can reduce how long lasting or severe the symptoms can be.
If you are born between
02/09/1937 and 01/09/1941, or
02/09/1942 and 01/09/1947
you may be eligible for a shingles vaccine this year. Please call 622854 to book an appointment with the Practice Nurse. For more information please visit the website www.immunisationscotlans.org.uk/shingles
Vitamin B12 Injections
Our Health Care Assistants are now trained in administering Vitamin B12 injections.
You should now book an appointment with a Health Care Assistant for your Vitamin B12 Injections at least 2 weeks in advance to ensure you get an appointment at the right time.
Unfortunately, Sr Conway our Nurse Practitioner will be off for a while. We have arranged for Sr Muirhead to work additional sessions and two very experienced Practice Nurses will be here on Thursdays and Fridays to provide additional cover. However, please be aware that in the next few months you may have to wait longer for a Practice Nurse appointment.
