We Ask - You Speak - We Listen - We Learn - We Change
We've carried out an internal survey on our practices and we think we're pretty good at what we are doing. However, that doesn't mean we are good, and it doesn't mean that we are serving you as a community; because only you can tell us that. Help us to find out that what we are doing well - and more importantly, that what we are not doing so well, and what you think we should be doing in order to make us 'What Good Looks Like' in the field of being a successful Medical Practice. Thank you for your consideration.

Update 2 Nov 17
We have just been informed that one of our patients has recently had a cold-call, at around 21:30 during an evening, from someone claiming to be from our practice - and trying to gain entry into their house. The patient called the Police who in turn advised that our practice should be informed.
We will never cold call
Our hours of service are from 08:30 - 18:00 Mon - Fri. Patients will always be contacted in the first instance if we are going to call. If you are in any doubt about the identification of anyone claiming to be from the practice you should call the police.

Flu Vaccination Statistics
Team Fochabers has vaccinated 735 patients to date!
Well done to all - still some to go though!
Update 18 Oct 17
We have been advised that that the Fochabers catchment area Breast Screening programme will commence Mon 27 November and will run for between 2 and 3 weeks. The location is still to be confirmed and we will update our website as soon as we have confirmation. Letters are being sent via ARI and so we will not be sending out any notification letters by post.
The screening services have been notified of anyone who potentially cannot use the stairs on the vehicle treatment room. We are advised that the ramp facility will be available, for pre-arranged appointments only, on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 09:30 - 10:30.
If you feel that you will not be able to manage the stairs and need the use of the lift, please contact email@example.com as soon as possible so that we can let the screening services know to book you a specific time slot.
Please feel free to pass this message on to anyone whom you may know does not have access to the web. We will also be posting our notifications on Facebook as well.
Update 15 Oct 17
Please be advised that we require 6 weeks' notification for travel vaccinations.
