Smear Drop In Day
After the success of previous drop-in days the Broomhill Practice will be having a drop-in smear taking day on Thursday 22nd August 19. If you are overdue your smear test why don’t you pop in between 8am and 5:30pm and see Sister Stewart. If you have never had a smear and wish to talk it over with Sister Stewart you can also drop in on Thursday 22nd August.
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 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.
