PATIENT NOTICE

Dr Roger Paterson has now retired from his work at St. Margaret's Health Centre, having been with us for 30 years. We will all miss him as a colleague and a friend as part of the health care team and know that the many patients he has helped will miss him too. We wish him many happy and healthy years of retirement.

 

 COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

We are very keen to keep our patients informed of where we are in the COVID vaccination programme but occasionally we fall behind due to the current workload.

We are strictly bound by the rules on priority groups to be vaccinated set by the Scottish Government and currently have finished all 1st vaccines to groups 1 - 6 with only a few patients still to be appointed and are rapidly working our way through the 2nd vaccines.

If you are an unpaid carer and have not yet been vaccinated you can click the link below to register for a vaccine.


Self-registration portal for unpaid carers

For Patients in Groups 7 – 9 and patients 49 years and under

You will be appointed by NHS Tayside using the national ServiceNow appointing system.

This system utilises patient postcodes and appoints them into one of their vaccination centres at Dewars, Pitlochry or Blairgowrie. 

As with all new systems there may be a few patients who would prefer a different appointment, or appointment venue and the letter you receive will advise you how change this. If you cannot get through on the supplied telephone number (01382 423108) try emailing tay.c19vaxlocalenquiries@nhs.scot

Currently patients under 49 years of age are receiving their appointments.

These letters will arrive in BLUE envelopes

This is all the current information we have so please do not contact the Health Centre.
