As part of our ongoing commitment to providing patients greater access to appointments, from 1 March 2016, Scalloway Health Centre will be offering an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) service.

The ANP will assess all patients who call for an ‘on the day’ appointment. Many minor ailments can be assessed and treated by the ANP which will allow more appointments with the GPs to deal with more complex cases.

When calling for an appointment you will be assessed by the ANP and a suitable appointment given. The ANP will have access to a GP at all times for further advice and patients can be referred on to the GP at any time.

Thank you for your co-operation with this new service.

Emergency Care Summary

keyboard_stethoscopeEvery patient in Scotland now has an Emergency Care Summary (ECS) containing basic information about your current medication allergies.

Your ECS can only be looked at by authorised staff in Out-Of-Hours centres, Accident and Emergency Departments, and at NHS 24.  They will ask for your permission to view your ECS unless you are too ill to give permission.  In this case staff may be able to view it anyway, in the interests of your safety.

Having an ECS should make your care easier and safer.  However. You have the right to remove your ECS from the system.  If you don’t want to have an ECS, please contact reception.
