Covid-19 Vaccination

The practice will soon be contacting patients aged 80 years and over to arrange an appointment for vaccination at the Health Centre. 

Patients’ outwith this age group who have any enquiries about the vaccination programme can contact the covid-19 helpline:

HELPLINE NO: 0800 030 8013

Available seven days a week between the hours of 8am and 8pm

Please note that it is not possible to book, cancel or rearrange an appointment at this stage.

Repeat Prescriptions

Please note that we are trying to prevent unnecessary footfall in the practice during the current pandemic. We would ask that when you next order your repeat prescription you advise us of your preferred pharmacy (provided it is in our local area). We will ensure that your prescription is sent directly to the pharmacy for collection. Please ensure that your current telephone number is updated on our system.

We are currently providing telephone consultation appointments. Following your consultation you may be asked to attend a face to face appointment where you will be given a specific appointment time. We ask that you wear a face covering and attend alone at the time of your appointment. If the clinician assesses you as suitable for a video consultation please click here for instructions to connect to this service. 

Michele Blair, our Links Worker can provide assistance to patients who may require additional support during this challenging time. Please contact our administration team who will pass on your details.

There are services available to support people during COVID-19. Please click this link for further information.

We are changing to a more integrated repeat prescription ordering system. Please download attached form and drop in to the surgery.

Repeat Prescriptions 

At the Cairns Practice we aim to have your repeat prescription available for collection 48 working hours following your request. Please note if you require your medication early i.e. if you are going on holiday, please contact reception staff prior to ordering.

Patients wishing to order their repeat prescription can order via our 24 hour prescription line on 0141 531 6218. Please leave your name, date of birth, address and telephone number along with the name of the medication you require.

There is also a prescription box at the main reception desk.

To improve the efficiency of our telephone answering service we would ask that you do not telephone the surgery to check in advance if your prescription is ready. 

Prescription Requests 

If you require medication that is not on your repeat list you may ask a member of the reception team to request this on your behalf. Please ensure you leave a current contact telephone number in case we need to get in touch with you. 

Lost/Urgent Prescriptions 

In the event of a lost prescription or you request an urgent prescription you will be asked to complete and sign a form.
