In­ter­net prob­lem at GP surg­eries

The Oban Times - - News -

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.
