Cairn Patient GroupUnfortunately, our PPG has been closed but we will use surveys and a new waiting room display system to communicate with patients.
Out of Hours When the surgery is closed and you are too ill to wait until it re-opens, contact NHS 24 on 111
Appointments We aim to have appointments available to be booked up to 6 weeks ahead but sometimes that is not possible. Please either book online or telephone 709709 to request an appointment
Home Visits If you are unable to come to the surgery, the doctor may visit you at home if this is medically appropriate. (Patients who are housebound or too ill to come to the Practice). We ask that patients do not abuse this service as a home visit takes up approximately 4 to 5 normal appointment slots
Every year the NHS and Scottish Government conduct a survey to ask patients about their experience of all aspects of their care at their GP Practice. Read our results here: Health and Care Experience Survey
INVERNESS VOLUNTARY TRANSPORT SCHEME
Have you ever been asked by an elderly relative or neighbour if you could give them a lift to their Doctor’s surgery?
Have you ever thought how you would get there yourself if you couldn’t drive or have access to transport?
Have you taken an expensive taxi or stood in the rain waiting for a bus?
The Inverness Voluntary Transport Scheme was initiated In March 2001. The Scheme provides non-emergency transport to anyone registered with a GP in Inverness who is unable to access Community Health care facilities.
Over the years the project has continued to expand, and has 900 patients now registered with the transport scheme. In addition to the 11 GP practices in and around Inverness, transport is also offered to patients who need to attend Primary Care appointments such as physiotherapy, podiatry, dentistry, occupational therapy and support groups.
A small charge is levied for this service, (£3 for a single journey and £5 for a return journey) which is delivered by a team of Volunteer drivers and supported by NHS Highland and the Highland Cross. A vehicle is provided, but some volunteers use their own vehicle.
You can register with us by calling our office directly on 01463 226662. Once registered all you need to do is give us a call and make an appointment. If we cannot provide transport at that time, we can liase with your clinic and try to re-schedule your appointment to a mutually convenient time.
Volunteering can have many advantages, including helping to develop confidence and self-esteem, providing a route into employment, and giving something back to your community.
