Greetings from all at the surgery.

We hope you are all coping with this latest “lockdown” . As always if you have any health concerns please contact the surgery

We are now almost set to go with Covid vaccinations. We expect to receive our first supply next week and have clinics booked for Lismore on Thursday 28th and Port Appin on Feb 2nd. We will visit the housebound to give their vaccination on the same day as the clinic.  

By the end of this week we will have contacted all those aged 80 and over (on March 31st) to offer an appointment, so if anyone in this age group has not heard from us by then please call us next week.

We will then be holding weekly clinics on a Thursday and working through the descending age groups in order.

Good news is that we now have a new Receptionist, Lorrie Morrison joining our team.

Anyone who has been to the surgery recently will know that we now have an intercom door entry system. When you come to the door please sanitise your hands then press the call button once. Then stand back and wait for the receptionist to answer. Please be patient, they may be on the phone, but will get to you as soon as they can.
