ACHARACLE MEDICAL PRACTICE NEWS
At the Medical Centre, we are slightly streamlining our appointment timetable, in order we can provide you, our patients, with a slicker service !

At Strontian, the only change is to the nurse’s appointments. Allison, our Practice Nurse will be in Strontian every Tuesday morning and Thursday morning, this will help with appointments for routine things like blood pressures, blood tests and dressing changes. It also means blood samples taken in the morning can be despatched in the afternoon. This will free up more Doctor appointment's, enabling the Doctor to be in Strontian on Thursday afternoons.

In Kilchoan, the Doctor will be taking surgery on Tuesday mornings and Friday mornings, this would mean the clinics are more spaced out to enable a better review of patients and again would mean any bloods taken in the morning are despatched promptly.

In Acharacle, on Fridays there will be one surgery held the morning and one in the afternoon, at present there are two morning surgeries only. This change will mean there is a Doctor at Acharacle all day on Fridays.


The District nurses have agreed to extend their clinic at Kilchoan on a Thursday from 10am till 1pm. This is by appointment only, to book an appointment with the District nurses, please phone the pines medical centre on 01967 431231.

A copy of this will be placed in the "De tha dol" and copies will be sent to the surgeries to display.

 

news

Acharacle Medical Practice, in line with most practices in Highland, will be closing each day at lunchtime from 1.00pm until 2.00pm with effect from Monday 3rd August 2015.

The answerphone will be on during this time and will give a mobile number for you to ring if you require the Doctor urgently, and it cannot wait until 2.00pm. The answerphone is unable to take messages. The surgery and phone line will reopen at 2.00pm. In an emergency, as always, please call 999.

 

Out of Hours & Emergency Calls
If you require a Doctor out of hours or in an emergency please telephone the surgery on 01967 431231.
If you feel you have a problem which needs to be dealt with the same day, please ring the surgery and inform the receptionist that you wish to be seen the same day. We have a Duty Doctor available every day who is responsible for dealing with home visits and emergency appointments or telephone advice.

Out of hours your call will be answered by NHS24. If you need a doctor NHS24 will arrange for the Duty Doctor to call you back.

You may also telephone NHS24 directly for advice on 08454 24 24 24
NHS24 Website Address http:/www.nhs24.com

 

Home Visits
If a patient is unable to attend the surgery, then a home visit can be made.
Requests for these should be made before 10.00am,
if possible to allow the Doctor to plan the day.

The receptionist may ask you what the problem is
as the Doctor needs to prioritise home visits.

Patient Responsibilities
Please telephone to cancel your appointment if you cannot attend so
that it can be allocated to another patient.

This practice operates a zero-tolerance policy of verbal or physical
aggression towards all practice staff.
