Flu Vaccination Programme

This year we ran two "drop-in" clinics for flu vaccinations.

 

If you were not able to attend either of these sessions and you are eligible for a flu vaccination, please phone the practice for a flu vaccination appointment.  Alternatively, if you decide that you would prefer not to have a flu vaccination this year, please phone us and let us know. 

 

Home Screening Test for Bowel Cancer

Aged between 50 & 74?  Every 2 years you should receive through the post a home screening test for bowel cancer.  

 

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. For men the risk of being diagnosed with colorectal cancer over the age of 50 is 1 in 18 (5.5%) and for women the equivalent risk is 1 in 22 (4.5%).

 

The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme invites all men and women between the ages of 50 to 74 for screening every two years. A letter is sent to the address at which the patient is registered.  Once a patient is 'called' they will be recalled during the same month every 2 years until they are 75. 

 

The screening kit is very easy to use If you have not sent your test back, please make an appointment with the GP to discuss.  Please call 0800 8403540 to get your screening kit.  If diagnosed at an early stage, bowel cancer is very treatable.
