Noticeboard

A new pharmacy service is now available to Ayrshire and Arran patients which provides  access to self-care advice for the treatment of impetigo for children and adults aged from 2years and simple urinary tract infections (UTI) in non pregnant women aged 16-64 years old. After assessment and where appropriate, a community pharmacist can supply antibiotics, free of charge, to treat the infection. Offering professional advice and treatment in pharmacies not only takes pressure off GP services, including out-of-hours, but also makes it easier for people to get help without having to make an appointment. Community pharmacies are open six days a week, and some operate in the evenings and on Sundays.

Home Visits

Doctor's bagWhilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 11:00.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.

A leaflet "Making Best Use of Your GP Practice" is available at Reception
