Welcome to Staffa Health

Changes to our Appointments System

We will be trialling a new appointments system from the 17th November. The changes should make it easier to access urgent appointments and telephone consultations. Please click here for more information.

SMS Messages

Staffa Health are now sending SMS (text message) confirmation and appointment reminder messages.

Patients who give their consent to receive SMS messages from the surgery receive an SMS message to confirm the appointment details when they book an appointment and an SMS message will be sent 48 hours before the appointment is due reminding them about their appointment. If you wish to start receiving the messages please let a member of the surgery staff know next time you contact us. Please click for more information

Online Booking of appointments and requests for repeat prescriptions

You can now book or cancel appointments or order prescriptions online. To use this service you must register with the surgery. NB: This new online service now replaces the old prescription ordering service that was available on this website.

Latest Practice News: Changes to the Appointments System

Nationally, an increasing number of patients with complex needs are being cared for in general practice. This means that at Staffa Health we need to look for new ways to give people the care they need, when they need it.

Over the last few months we have assessed our ability to respond to patient requests for appointments. In assessing the service we offer, new ideas have been developed to respond to our patients’ needs.

From the 17th November 2014 we will be trialling two changes to the appointment system by offering patients: • Urgent same day appointments instead of patients going through the triage system.
• Telephone consultations.

The aim of the new system is to ensure that the patients with the greatest medical need are seen quickly, and to give patients a more convenient service. For more information on the changes please click here
