Dr MacLean will be swimming the 23miles (37km) of Loch Lomond to raise money for St Margaret of Scotland Hospice. The swim is planned for a weekend in July.

Click here to visit the Just Giving page if you would like to donate to this worthy cause.

A note from Dr MacLean:

‘I’m hoping the 23miles will take roughly 12 hours but there are a lot of variables. Training in the Loch swimming regularly across the Winter and onwards. Currently swimming around 22km a week (loch and pool). Thanks for the donations to the Hospice. I’m a GP in the local area and we refer to St Margaret’s for patients and families when needed.’

If you are travelling outside the UK, you may need to be vaccinated against some serious diseases found in other parts of the world.

 

If you have a holiday abroad planned, we suggest you complete one of our travel vaccination questionnaires. You can collect one from reception or download here.

 

Our Practice Nurse will check if you require additional vaccines and contact you to discuss these if required.

 

Please note, as some vaccinations are required to be completed up to 6 weeks before you travel, it’s best that you arrange to fill out your form at least 8 to 10 weeks prior to your trip. If you return your form to us any later than 4 weeks prior to travel, we may ask that you attend a private travel clinic to receive any required vaccinations.
