SPIRE (Scottish Primary Care Information Resource)
NHSScotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records. SPIRE is a service that will allow small amounts of information from GP practice records to be used to help doctors’ surgeries, NHSScotland and the Scottish Government to improve care and plan services, and to help researchers to learn more from patient information held at GP practices.
A new campaign is underway to inform patients across Scotland of the benefits of the service, and the confidential and secure way in which GP patient records will be used to help plan and improve health care services.
You have a choice about your patient record being used in this way. To find out more go to spire.scot or call NHS Inform on 0800 22 44 88.
If you decide you would like to opt-out the form is available from reception.
Norovirus causes diarrhoea and vomiting and is one of the most common stomach bugs in the UK. It's also called the "winter vomiting bug" because it's more common in winter, although you can catch it at any time of the year. It can be very unpleasant but it usually clears up by itself in a few days. You can normally look after yourself or your child at home. Try to avoid going to your GP, as norovirus can spread to others very easily. Call your GP or NHS 111 if you're concerned or need any advice.

GP Shortage & Change to Routine Appointments
At present the practice has a shortage of GPs and while we are trying to address this we would appreciate your patience. This means there will be less routine appointments available and in addition to this these appointments can only be made up to 4 weeks in advance. A duty GP will be available via telephone to deal with any urgent on the day medical problems. We thank you for your patience during this difficult time and your support to the practice is appreciated. If you cannot keep your appointment please cancel it.
Almost a third of GP practices currently have a least one unfilled vacancy and unfortunately a significant number of GP training places remain unfilled across the country.
