Dr Gambhir New Role with NHS Education

Dr Gambhir has taken on a new role with NHS Education for Scotland as Assistant Director for Postgraduate GP Training starting 1st November 2018. This means he will be reducing his work commitment in the practice from 8 to 4 sessions per week. We will be replacing his sessions so that appointment availability is not reduced. However patients may notice longer waiting times and reduced appointment availability for Dr Gambhir in the near future.

We hope you will bear with us during this transition period.

SHINGLES 2018-19

Shingles is a one off vaccination and this year we will be administering the vaccination to those aged 70. Anyone under 80 years old who has been offered the vaccine in previous years but did not wish to take up the offer can also receive it this year too. We will be contacting eligible patients around November.
