NHSScotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records

From May 2017 we will improve the way we use information from GP patient records. These changes will help to plan and improve health and care services in Scotland.

SPIRE (Scottish Primary Care Information Resource) is a service that has been developed to help GPs, the NHS in Scotland and researchers to learn from information held at GP practices.


Our practice-attached community pharmacists are Lynne Irvine and Nicole Aitken. Lynne and Nicole monitor the prescribing activity of the practice and provide a range of prescribing advice. We also have a Pharmacy Technician, Lee-Anne McKen, who assists Lynne and Nicole in their role.
