The Practice takes part in Protected Learning Time arranged by the Glenrothes and NE Fife Community Health Partnership (CHP) from time to time. This gives us an opportunity to learn and build our skills as a team.
During these sessions the practice closes at 1230 until 1800. Emergency cover is provided via NHS24 and PCES as if it were the weekend. There is no routine service and the Practice is closed to the public.

For patients under the age of 80 years of age, NHS Fife are delivering the Covid Vaccinations via centralised hubs. Appointment letters are currently being sent to patients aged 65 years and over, as well as those who are Shielding. The next group to be sent for will be those patients aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease. Please do not phone the Practice if you have received your letter as we are not able to make or reschedule these appointments. Instead you should call 0800 030 8013 (available 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week). If you are concerned that you should have received a letter but it has not arrived, you can complete an online contact form via the NHS Inform website. There is also general patient information available at www.nhsinform.scot/covid19vaccine and www.nhsfife.org/covidvaccine/
If you are eligible for the vaccine this year you will be sent a letter from Public Health / NHS Scotland. Please see www.nhsinform.scot/flu for more information.
To make a flu vaccination appointment, but only once you have received your letter, you should make an appointment for your flu vaccination at a Community Pharmacy. Please contact the Pharmacy directly to confirm your eligibility and to make an appointment before attending.
