Internet problem at GP surgeries
PATIENTS who normally attend GP surgeries in Borve and Habost on Lewis are being asked to be aware of internet disruption to these surgeries.
As there is no access to electronic patient information or the electronic prescribing system from these surgeries, alternative measures have been put in place to allow the appointments and prescribing systems to continue as normal.
While patients may, in some cases, be offered appointments at an alternative surgery or asked to collect their prescription from a different location, NHS Western Isles is aiming to keep any disruption to a minimum and apologises for any inconvenience.
NHS Western Isles stressed that patients should continue to use the normal telephone numbers to contact the surgeries in the first instance.
