Flu Clinics

We have our vaccines in stock and have started contacting all eligible patients to book appointments. We will be running Flu Vaccine Clinics for Carradale Surgery registered patients starting from Friday, 2 October.   The 5-minute appointments will be on a Friday morning for Carradale patients and on a Wednesday for Skipness patients.

Due to the increased numbers receiving vaccines this year, the Covid-19 regulations, and limited car parking we are issuing Flu Clinic Guidance to assist clinicians and patients.

We THANK YOU in advance for your help in making the flu clinics run smoothly.

Flu Clinic Guidance 

If you have Covid symptoms or feel unwell, please do not attend your flu clinic appointment. Telephone 01583 431376 to advise ASAP

  • Surgery staff will telephone eligible patients to book appointments as clinics will be by appointment only.
  • Wear a short sleeved top and/or loose clothing for easier administration of the vaccine.
  • Arrive promptly at the surgery, but only 1-2 minutes prior to your appointment time as there will be no indoor waiting room in operation. If you are late your appointment will need to be rescheduled.
  • Please wear a face mask/covering on arrival and during your appointment.
  • There is a one-way system in operation for patients at Carradale Surgery – enter via the front door and exit via the side fire door which is at the end of the corridor.
  • You will be met at the front door by one of the receptionists who will direct you to one of the two clinicians at your appointment time.
  • All coats, clothing and walking aids etc to be with you at all times as items cannot be left at the entrance.
  • The surgery toilet will only be available for emergencies.
  • Please adhere to the 2-meter social distancing at all times.

We THANK YOU in advance for your help in making the flu clinics run smoothly.


Information for Patients 

We would like to remind you of our procedures for the foreseeable future in order to minimise risk to staff, patients, guardians and carers when visiting the surgery.

Entry to the Practice will continue to be by appointment only and therefore our main entrance remains locked to limit the number of patients in the surgery.  

APPOINTMENTS

Booking Appointments: We continue to triage all requests for appointments and encourage patients to engage in telephone or video consultations rather than attending the surgery for ‘face-to-face’ appointments.  If the clinician decides it is necessary for you to be seen in the Practice, this will be arranged for you. 

Attending Appointments: Where possible please attend your appointment alone.  Children should attend with one parent or guardian. 

Please ensure you attend on time for your appointment.  If you arrive late your appointment will be rescheduled for another time.

We advise patients not to arrive more than 5 minutes before the appointment time so as not to be waiting outside too long. 

When arriving for the appointment please wear a mask, ring the door bell and hand sanitise your hands with the gel.  The clinician will meet you at the door and let you inside at your appointment time. 

Cancelling Appointments: Should you be unable to attend your Telephone/video/face to face appointment please let the reception staff know so the appointment slot can be allocated to someone else.

MEDICATION REQUESTS

Please email Carradale.surgery@nhs.scot (preferable), call (01583 431376) or post through the letterbox at the left-hand side of the building. 

MEDICATION COLLECTION

Please collect your medication 48 hours after ordering and between 2:00 - 4:30pm. Ring the doorbell and follow the instructions on the door.

We thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.


Video Consultations

'Near Me' is a new service which enables you to have a video consultation with Dr Elder or the Practice Nurses from the comfort of your home. Video appointments are not suitable for every type of appointment, so the Practice will advise you when it can be used. 

This service is only for patients who have been provided with a video consultation appointment.  At the appointed time, please click the Start Video Call button to be taken to Carradale Surgery Near Me online waiting room. Once in the "virtual waiting room" Dr Elder or the Practice Nurse will connect to your video call at your appointment time. For further details check our Near Me Video Consultation page in the Appointments section.
