Good Morning,

 

It may be a new year, but we still have the same phone line problems…

 

Unfortunately we are having trouble receiving calls directly again this morning. We can however receive calls via our switchboard. You can dial 01389 763111 and switchboard can direct your call to us.

 

We have been in contact with our telephones provider again and they assure us they are looking into the problem.

 

We apologise for the inconvenience.

January 6th, 2020

We will be closed for the festive holidays on Wednesday 25th & Thursday 26th December and also Wednesday 1st & Thursday 2nd January.

Remember to order your medication to cover this period & where possible allow 2 working days for us to process the request for you.

If you find yourself unwell during this time, the NHS ‘A-Z of Symptoms guide is very useful in identifying the right option for your condition – and when to access essential services.

Our doctors will be attending a training event for all local GP’s on Thursday 14th November.

We will be running an emergency service only this day. We therefore ask that you only contact the surgery during this time if your enquiry is urgent.

We thank you for your understanding.

November 7th, 2019

We will be holding our annual flu vaccination clinics as usual at the Masonic Hall in Dumbarton. They will be taking place 9am to 4.15pm (with a break between 12noon-1pm) on both Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th October.

If you are eligible for a flu vaccination from the practice, you will be sent an invitation letter to attend one of the above clinics. Letters will be sent week commencing 7th October.

Please only attend the above clinics if you have received a letter or are advised to do so by the practice.

As the flu vaccination season is a large undertaking for practices, we ask that where possible, you attend the above clinics to have your vaccination done.  Our clinics are efficiently run, so you won’t be waiting long. Attending the practice out with these times solely for a flu vaccination causes added pressure to the practice and its day to day running.

If the day/time on your letter does not suit you, you are welcome to attend the Masonic Hall clinic during any other day/time as stated above.

If you are not eligible for a flu vaccination through the practice, but would still like to have the vaccination, ask your local pharmacist. Many of our local pharmacies offer this service for a small charge.

October 1st, 2019

Please note the practice will be closed on Monday 30th September for the Bank Holiday.

 

Remember to order your medication to cover this period & allow 2 working days for us to process the request for you

If you do find yourself short, your local emergency pharmacies are:

Boots – High St Dumbarton – Tel: 01389 763907 – Open 11am – 3pm

Boots – Main St Alexandria – Tel: 01389 752606 – Open 10am – 2pm

 

If you find yourself unwell during this time, the NHS ‘Know Who To Turn To’ guide is very useful in identifying the right option for your condition – and when to access essential services.

 

We hope you have a lovely weekend!
