23/07/2021 Update re Achiltibuie and Dundonnell branch clinics.
I am pleased to say that given the reduction in Covid-19 cases locally we will be able to go ahead with our plans for branch surgeries next week.
Please see below for further details and how to book 😊
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Last month we discussed within the Practice the reintroduction of branch clinics and agreed that we could draw up a phased return contingent on the Highland area remaining in Tier 1 with local Covid infection rates remaining low.
We understand the impact of the branch clinic service being paused and that for some it has caused more issues than for others – we are very keen to return to a sustainable and appropriate service model that will meet the needs of all our patients. Having said that, the Practice is still under-resourced to the tune of more than 1 full time GP and our community/ country/world remains in a pandemic and this will limit what we can offer and the frequency of branch clinics.
As a starting point we have scheduled a branch clinic for both Dundonnell and Achiltibuie at the end of July, August and September. These branch clinics will be face to face, but only following a telephone call with a clinician prior to the appointment. If you feel that you require to be seen face to face please call the Health Centre on 01854 612015 to arrange a telephone appointment in the first instance.

Update re Achiltibuie and Dundonnell branch clinics.

Unfortunately, since the plans detailed below were made there have been 15 Covid positive cases in our community last week, with that figure almost doubling this week.  This means many households are now self-isolating and this has then had an impact on the wider community and local businesses.  From a Practice perspective we have postponed some routine appointments or changed them to a phone-call where appropriate.   

In light of the ongoing changes locally, we may need to postpone the July branch surgery, but we will not make this decision in haste, we will leave it until the week before; so w/c 19th July.  If we deem it safe and appropriate, then we will hold the branch clinics as planned.    

I think unfortunately this sudden change locally demonstrates the unpredictability of the Covid situation and although we have been incredibly lucky locally up until now, we can't become complacent.

Monday 28th June 2021
There have been several positive cases of Covid-19 identified within our Practice area. If you have been asked to have a PCR test then the details for the Ullapool Fire Station are below.
Alternatively you can book an appointment via NHS Inform for Dingwall or Inverness or order a postal test using this link https://www.nhsinform.scot/.../coronavirus-covid-19-testing
Due to the number of cases locally we have taken the decision to revert back to telephone appointments in the first instance but please note that we will always see you face to face if it is clinically appropriate. We must ask that you do not attend the Health Centre if you show any symptoms of Covid-19 or if you or a member of your household has been asked to self isolate.
Please contact us by phone on 01854 612015 if you any concerns or queries.
