NHS MINOR AILMENT SERVICE

If you fall into one of the categories below you are eligible to register for Minor Ailments:

  • Children under 16 (or under 19 if in full-time education);

  • People aged over 60 years of age;

  • Those on certain benefits (eg Income Support);

  • People with a valid medical exemption certificate.

When you are registered for the minor ailments service your pharmacist can give you medicine for a minor illness or complaint, if they think you need it. You will not have to pay for this.

You will be able to get advice and free treatment (if you need it) from your pharmacist for problems such as:

Acne, Athletes Foot, Backache, Cold Sores, Cough, Constipation, Diarrhoea, Earache, Eczema, Allergies, Haemorrhoids (Piles), Hay Fever, Headache, Head Lice, Indigestion, Mouth Ulcers, Pain, Nasal Congestion, Period Pain, Thrush, Sore Throat, Warts, Threadworms, Verrucae.

Your pharmacist, like your doctor, can only give out certain medicines and products. You may not get the medicine or product you would normally buy.

If your pharmacist feels it is better for you to see your GP, they may refer you directly or ask you to make an appointment at your surgery.

Register at any pharmacy.

Nuisance Calls

It has come to our attention that some patients in Tayside have recently received telephone calls from an unknown source querying the medication they are currently prescribed.  The patients are informed that if they do not share this information with the caller, their medication will cease.

Please be assured that NHS Tayside will never ask you for such information and your medication will not be stopped.

If you have any suspicions around a phone call you have received please contact us directly so we can notify NHS Tayside, as they may be able to establish a pattern, and we would also suggest that you report this to the Police.

Thank you.

Collections

Do you have any used postage stamps at home?  We are collecting stamps to raise money for donkey sanctuaries.  Please hand them into Reception or pop into the box in the waiting area. Thank you kindly.

Appointments

May we remind our patients that GP appointments are 10 minutes long. If you have more than one problem or would like a longer discussion then please let us know when making your appointment.

Important Dates

The Medical Centre will be CLOSED on the following dates:

Monday 25th December

Tuesday 26th December

Monday 1st January 2018

Tuesday 2nd January 2018

If you require medical attention on these dates, please call NHS 24 on 111.

May we take this opportunity to wish all of our patients a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

 

New Patient Registration

All patients living within the Practice boundary are welcome to join our list.

You will be asked to complete a registration form and a medical questionnaire.  You will be asked to provide ID when registering with us - this can be a birth certificate, passport, driving licence etc.

A registration medical will be offered to all new patients and this appointment may be made at the time of registration.  You do not have to have a medical - this is entirely optional but can be a good idea if you are on any medication or have ongoing medical conditions.

You will be registered with the Practice and not with a specific doctor.

You may at any time express a preference for a doctor either for all your medical needs or on a case-by-case basis.

We will do our best to respect your choice.

However, not all the doctors in the practice provide all the services and specific doctors may not be immediately available.

You can download the registration pack on the link below, fill it in and bring it with you on your first visit to the practice.

Please note:

Please notify us of any change of your personal details so that we can amend our records.  If you move outwith our practice area, we will have to ask you to register with another practice nearer to your home.
