Practice hours of work are between 8-6pm daily, this post is part time (24 hours) and will work across these hours Monday to Friday.

Phase 2 of the Flu Vaccination Programme
The Scottish Government has announced that individuals aged 60-64 years, who aren't otherwise eligible for vaccination during Phase 1 of the programme, can now be invited to attend for immunisation. We understand that a decision will be made in late December on when to invite people aged 55-59 years who aren't otherwise eligible for vaccination.

Information for Patients
We would like to remind you of our procedures for the foreseeable future in order to minimise risk to staff, patients, guardians and carers when visiting the surgery.
Entry to the Practice will continue to be by appointment only and therefore our main entrance remains locked to limit the number of patients in the surgery.
Booking Appointments: We continue to triage all requests for appointments and encourage patients to engage in telephone or video consultations rather than attending the surgery for ‘face-to-face’ appointments. If the clinician decides it is necessary for you to be seen in the Practice, this will be arranged for you.
Attending Appointments: Where possible please attend your appointment alone. Children should attend with one parent or guardian.
Please ensure you attend on time for your appointment. If you arrive late your appointment will be rescheduled for another time.
We advise patients not to arrive more than 5 minutes before the appointment time so as not to be waiting outside too long.
When arriving for the appointment please wear a mask, ring the door bell and hand sanitise your hands with the gel. The clinician will meet you at the door and let you inside at your appointment time.
Cancelling Appointments: Should you be unable to attend your Telephone/video/face to face appointment please let the reception staff know so the appointment slot can be allocated to someone else.
Please email Carradale.firstname.lastname@example.org (preferable), call (01583 431376) or post through the letterbox at the left-hand side of the building.
Please collect your medication 48 hours after ordering and between 2:00 - 4:30pm. Ring the doorbell and follow the instructions on the door.
We thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.
'Near Me' is a new service which enables you to have a video consultation with Dr Elder or the Practice Nurses from the comfort of your home. Video appointments are not suitable for every type of appointment, so the Practice will advise you when it can be used.
This service is only for patients who have been provided with a video consultation appointment. At the appointed time, please click the Start Video Call button to be taken to Carradale Surgery Near Me online waiting room. Once in the "virtual waiting room" Dr Elder or the Practice Nurse will connect to your video call at your appointment time. For further details check our Near Me Video Consultation page in the Appointments section.
