Online Prescription Ordering

You can now view, request, and check the progress of your repeat prescription requests online.  There is also a free 'app' allowing you to manage your prescriptions on your mobile phone. You must contact the surgery first as you will require a code to be able to register. 

Missed Appointments

We try hard to meet  demand but an increasing amount of appointments with the doctors and nurses are being wasted due to patients who fail to attend or who cancel at short notice leaving us unable to offer the appointment to any one else. If you find that you are unable to attend your appointment or no longer need it, please let us know in plenty of time so that it can be given to another patient.

 

Pittenweem or  Elie Surgery?

All of our Doctors and Nurses consult at both Surgeries and you may be offered an appointment at either site.  This can cut the length of time you have to wait but you have the choice  to be seen at. whichever Surgery you prefer.  Please ensure that you have confirmed with the receptionist which Surgery your appointment is at to prevent a wasted journey.

Children aged between 2 years and 5 years (who do not already attend school) will be eligible to have flu immunisation at the surgery this year.  For most children this will be in the form of a nasal vaccine.  Letters with information letters are being sent out to the patients/carers of eligible children at the moment.  Please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment for your child/children.

Shingles

Patients who qualify for shingles vaccination this year will already have received a letter from the surgery (or will be sent one shortly).  Please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment.  If you haven't already had your flu jab, you can have it at the same time.
