Welcome to Laggan Medical Practice

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.

ORDERING ONLINE PRESCRIPTIONS;

We have introduced a new service for ordering prescriptions through our website called Patient Services. This will let you interact with our Practice using the Internet at your convenience even when we are closed. Currently Patient Services will allow you to order your repeat prescriptions or view/cancel routine Doctors appointments online.

You will need to register with the Practice to access this service, once registered you will be given information that will enable you to create your username and password. This will be on an individual basis and a form will be required for each family member. Any person over the age of 14 years will require their own email address for patient confidentiality. Any person who has an existing shared account prior to turning 14 years old will be required to reconfirm their email address to continue using this service. Please note that you can withdraw from the Online Service at any time by contacting the Practice on  01528 544 225

Please be aware that if your e-mail address is shared by a number of people in your family, all of them will be able to see details of your personal information, prescriptions and appointments made or cancelled.

Thanks in advance

Laggan Gergask Reception Team

You can collect information leaflets and application forms at surgery reception.  Registration must be done in person at the surgery reception, you will be asked to verify your email address on registration so please have these details to hand. The process only takes a couple of minutes. Once registration is completed you will be able to view and order your repeat prescriptions online.  Note this service provides access to your personal medical record therefore it should not be shared.  Please be aware you may also be asked to produce photographic ID when registering.

General Data Protection Regulations and Sharing Information to Improve Services;

Laggan Medical Practice has a legal responsibility to make all patients aware of what personal data we hold, how we store it and what it is used for.

Sharing Information to Improve Services:

NHSScotland 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, NHSScotland 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 spire.scot

NHS INFORM – NHS Scotland has updated and improved their patient information website – this website provides useful information on everyday health problems and illnesses, healthy living advice and how to access support
