The doctors and staff at Kingussie Medical practice surgery are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. With patients’ needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

Our healthcare team comprises a wide range of professionals. Our practice is growing including new staff, new staff roles, and new patients. Due to this growth, the reception team will now ask more questions when you call. The team are trained to ask specific questions and are able to signpost you to the most relevant service or clinician.  This can include dentists, pharmacists, and opticians. By directing you to other more relevant services, this will reduce the demand on the staff within the practice and reduce the time waiting for an appointment.

For day to day appointments, you might be seen by either a nurse or a doctor depending on the nature of the problem.  Our Practice Nurse team are specially trained to assess and treat a wide range of health conditions meaning that it will not always be necessary to see a doctor.  Our nurse practitioner is able to issue her own prescriptions for medicines.

We also need to make all patients aware of their legal rights in relation to their personal data. To obtain a copy of our full Data Protection Notice which details all of the above then please feel free to ask at Reception for a paper copy.

SPIRE NHS Scotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records. SPIRE is a service that will allow small amounts of information from GP practice records to be used to help doctors’ surgeries, NHS Scotland and the Scottish Government to improve care and plan services, and to help researchers to learn more from patient information held at GP practices.

A new campaign is underway to inform patients across Scotland of the benefits of the service, and the confidential and secure way in which GP patient records will be used to help plan and improve health care services.

You have a choice about your patient record being used in this way. To find out more go to www.spire.scot.
