FROM 2022 OLD MACHAR MEDICAL PRACTICE WILL NO LONGER BE PROVIDING TRAVEL CLINIC SERVICES.
As travel restrictions continue to relax, we have an increasing number of patient queries regarding travel vaccinations.
To try and help manage the GP workload and make sure GP’s are using their skills in the best way the Scottish Government along with all of the GPs agreed that giving vaccination should be moved away from General Practice.
You may have already noticed that your GP no longer provides flu vaccination clinics, these are now run by health board staff, usually in different venues. In a similar way, Instead of making an appointment with the practice nurse at their local surgery, patients are now able to arrange travel vaccinations at one of 35 community pharmacies across the Grampian region.
More information can be found at the Grampian Vaccination - Travel Vaccination Website.
