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.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for usually 2 weeks (but in certain circumstances this can be extended to up to three months) This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to permanently register with the practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
