GP Practices are changing

New Repeat Prescription Line

From Monday 22nd October, repeat prescriptions can be ordered via our new Repeat Prescription Request Line on 01563 599300.

We will no longer be taking repeat prescription requests on our main line.

The Repeat Prescription Request Line allows you to leave a message day 24 hours a day.

Please ensure you leave the following information on our answering machine:

Your Name, Address, Date of Birth, Contact Telephone Number, Full description of the items you require.

If you telephone our main line, you will be asked to redial the above number.

This allows the practice to free up the lines for those requiring more urgent assistance.

For more information on how to order your repeat medication, including online, in person and by telephone, click on the Prescription tab above.


Travel Vaccinations Service 
 

Please note that we do not offer travel immunisation advice – we are not travel specialists.  If you require travel vaccinations, you should contact NHS Inform 0800 22 44 88 for advice and check with them which immunisations are required for your destination, before contacting us for an appointment.

Our Practice Nurses offer basic travel immunisations at no charge, as per our NHS contract, depending on your destination and your current vaccine status.

The following travel vaccinations are free on the NHS in Scotland and will be the only ones offered:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Diptheria, Polio and Tetanus (combined)
  • Typhoid
  • Cholera

Please ensure that you contact us SIX weeks before departure.  You will need to meet with the Practice Nurse in the first instance to discuss your travel arrangements.  A prescription for any of the necessary vaccinations provided free by the NHS will be issued at this point.  Once you have obtained your medication from the pharmacy, you should book another appointment to see one of our Practice Nurses so that the vaccination(s) can be administered.  Please remember that you must bring the vaccinations detailed on the prescription with you to your Practice Nurse appointment. 

If you are going further afield or off the beaten track, or if you require anti-malaria prophylaxis or TB screening for travel, we do not provide these non-NHS services.

For non-NHS services you may wish to contact:

Vaccinations and advice on TB screening – Crosshouse Hospital: 01563 577970

Vaccinations, travel advice, anti-malaria prophylaxis and advice on TB screening – The Travel Clinic Glasgow: 0141 889 7656.

Travel Clinic, Glasgow Airport: 0141 848 4800

Anti-malaria prophylaxis – visit a Pharmacist for advice.

Employees and Students at Risk

Immunisations and blood screening required for Occupational or Educational Purposes is the responsibility of the Employer’s or Student’s Occupational Health Department. We do not provide this non-NHS service and we advise patients to inform their Occupational Health Department that they should not be exposed to risk if they are not immunised or had their immunity confirmed or been trained in exposure to sharps/bodily fluids.
