Wednesday 2nd October - morning clinic in Tomatin(times advertised locally)
Wednesday 9th October - 14:00-17:45 (Aviemore HC)
Wednesday 16th October - 14:00-17:45 (Aviemore HC)

If you are eligible you will receive a letter - if you think you are but don't get a letter please let us know. If you are coming in to see us for any other reason you are more than welcome to get the flu vaccine during a routine appointment.
The flu season in the southern hemisphere (which is what our vaccines are based on) has been particularly bad this year so we strongly encourage all eligible patients to attend for the vaccine. It not only protects yourself but stops flu circulating in our community.
We will as usual be running bookable clinics for all children aged 2-5. We will advertise these as soon as we have confirmed delivery dates for the nasal spray vaccine

Re-joining the practice today we have Dr Stuart Connolly who returns for the final 12 months of his GP training. We are all delighted to welcome Stuart back.
Also joining us today is Dr Jess Seymour who is with us for the first 6 months of her GP training. Jess will then return for her final 12 months of training in August next year.
The final new recruit of this intake is Dr Liam Torrens who will be with us for the next 4 months of his foundation training.
Letters going out to teenagers..
We will be sending letters to all our teenagers (13-18) asking them to confirm their contact details. Many teenagers book their own appointments but often still have only their parents contact details on their records. This can cause issues with regards confidentiality, if anyone has any concerns about this please feel free to give us a call.
