Important changes to ordering your prescriptions

In order to make our prescription service safer, and after careful consideration, our GPs have made the decision that it is in our patient’s best interest and for safe prescribing of medications that we will no longer take medication requests over the telephone, this includes the removal of our repeat ordering telephone message service as of the 15th April.

Organ Donation Scotland

The law around organ and tissue donation in Scotland is changing to an opt out system

This means that from 26 March 2021 if you die in the rare circumstances where you could become a donor and have not recorded a donation decision, you will be considered to have agreed to be a donor when you die, unless you have chosen to opt out.

Organ and tissue donation remain a personal decision and you have a choice.  It is important that you register your decision and the best way to do this is on the NHS Organ Donor Register.
