COVID-19 VACCINATION UPDATE 21/03/2022
Letter's have been issued for the Spring Booster Dose for High Risk Groups:
- adults aged 75 years and over (or will turn 75 by 30 June 2022)
- residents in care homes for older adults
- individuals aged 12 years and over who have a weakened immune system
GP Practice's are no longer administering Covid-19 Vaccinations and these will be Board run Clinics only. Please see info from the Primary Care Vaccination Below:
Practices should direct patients to the National Helpline in the first instance, if they have received an appointment letter from NHS Scotland, and the appointment is not convenient. Alternatively, patients can also be directed to the NHS Highland Vaccination Enquiry Hub (08000 320 339) who will be happy to assist with rescheduling an appointment, to a more convenient location and/or time.
We recognise that locations and opening hours may not be suitable so clinics are being arranged across NHS Highland. Further information on these additional vaccination clinics will be communicated as plans are finalised but patients are being appointed inline with the national guidance of 24weeks post last vaccination.
Should a patient wish to raise a concern/complaint they should be directed to the local Enquiry Hub where the team will be happy to assist and/or send a concern/complaint to the Feedback team as per process.
Citizens who are registered with their GP as being housebound will be contacted and vaccinated at home. If a patient receives an appointment to attend a clinic and cannot attend because they are housebound, they should email email@example.com or call our the Enquiry Hub on 08000 320 339 where the team will be happy to assist.
We no longer have any stock for Covid-19 vaccinations but details of Board run clinics can also be found on the link below:

EAR SYRINGING AT CROYARD MEDICAL PRACTICE
We have made the decision to stop providing an ear syringing service at the practice.
We are faced with a huge increase in the demand for clinical time and medical services in other areas, and so we no longer have the capacity to be able to offer this service in the practice.
Ear syringing has been withdrawn by most other GP practices in Highland for some time for the same reasons.
What we can do is encourage self-care for patients; there is evidence that oiling, and also self-irrigation, can work well for a significant number of patients. We have provided the following information to encourage self-care, before accessing ear syringing.
Please note – We will never refuse appointments for those who have ear pain
