Scottish Bowel Screening Programme
Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland after lung and breast cancer. Every year, almost 4,000 people are diagnosed with the disease.
The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme will invite all men and women in Scotland between the ages of 50 to 74 for screening every two years. The programme has been rolled out across Scotland and is now available in all NHS Boards.
We encourage all eligible patients to complete this test. If you have received a kit in the past but have not sent it back a replacement will be sent to you from the Scottish Bowel Screening Programme over the coming months.
Further information can be found by going to www.bowelscreening.scot.nhs.uk
Over the past year the Surgery has continued to raise money for MND Scotland through the sale of second-hand books. Our total for 2014 was a fantastic £328.95.
We also raised £80 last Christmas for the British Heart Foundation and £75 this Christmas for Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance.
In 2015 the money raised from the sale of books will go to Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance. Any donation of books is always welcome.
Thank you to everyone who has bought a book or contributed.
Please can we remind patients that we require 48 hrs notice when requesting repeat prescriptions. This does not include weekends as the surgery is shut. A prescription requested on a Friday or Saturday will not be actioned by the surgery until Monday and may not be ready for collection/sent to chemist until the Tuesday.
If you are a new patient registering with the practice and need to order your medication, you will need to provide us with an up to date list of all your medication including strength and dose and give as at least 48 hours to issue your prescription. You may need to contact your previous GP to check all the medication you are being prescribed.
