Welcome to Creich Surgery
Advice for the wearing of face coverings in our premises.
Face coverings are now optional for NHS employees including in clincial areas and wider community healthcare; you will still see some staff wearing masks when it is needed for clinical care.
Visitors do not need to wear a face covering, but can still choose to do so.
If we need you to wear a face covering we will explain why.
If you are unwell or have been in contact with an infectious disease speak to the practice team by phone prior to visiting the practice.
Please maintain good hand hygiene.
CHANGES TO DELIVERY OF VACCINATION PROGRAMME FROM 01st March 2023
In the past those requiring a routine vaccination will have been invited to attend an appointment at your local GP Practice. As from 01 March 2023 most vaccinations will be delivered by the Health Board as part of a national vaccination transformation programme.
Please see the attachment below from NHS Highland for all the information regarding these changes including details of who to contact.
