PATIENT NOTICE

 

Covid Vaccine - 12th January 2021 update

The Health Centre has now received it’s first delivery of COVID Vaccines.

However like every practice in Perth and Kinross we only received a small amount and no regular timetable of when to expect further deliveries.

We have started organising our clinics.  We are working from the oldest patient down; though couples who are both in this cohort will be invited together. The current cohort is for patients who are over 80 years of age by 31st March 2021.  Housebound patients will be vaccinated by the HSCP Immunisation team.

So please be patient, we will hopefully be in touch with everyone in this cohort to book an appointment for a vaccine in the next 3 weeks, but are at the mercy of NHS Tayside’s delivery schedule. Please do not phone us to book an appointment; we will be in touch with you.

Welcome to St. Margaret's Health Centre Website

We are a purpose-built health centre situated in the grounds of St Margaret‘s Community Hospital (14 beds) here in Auchterarder. We cover a widely scattered rural practice providing a very broad spectrum of medical care. The health centre has suitable access for all disabled persons, having all patient services on the ground floor, and there is a separate WC for disabled patients.

We provide care for approximately 10,200 patients covering an area of 100 square miles.  This care is provided from two centres - the health centre here in Auchterarder and our branch surgery in Dunning.

Health and Happiness

Our team are dedicated to your continued good health and approach your care with professionalism, discretion and friendliness. You can count on a warm welcome from everyone involved here at the practice.

St. Margaret's Hospital

St Margaret's Hospital is a great asset to the local community, allowing not only in-patient care but also treating minor injuries between 08:00 and 18:00 Monday to Friday.  Any minor injuries "out of hours" should contact NHS 24 on 111 for advice.  A range of out patient services are also held there.

Reminder to our patients April 2020

Even although we are currently providing a reduced service at the Health Centre our ON THE DAY TELEPHONE TRIAGE SURGERY is still taking place each morning for patients to receive a callback from a GP, nurse or practice pharmacist.  Your callback will usually be between 8.30am and 11am.

To request a callback please phone the reception before 10am.

 
Calls after 10am requesting to speak to a GP on the same day are classed as on the day emergencies and are dealt with by the oncall GP.  The oncall GP can be very busy and it might take a bit longer for them to call you back so whenever possible please request a same day call back by 10am.
