Loch Leven Health Centre

 

2020 Flu Campaign
We are pleased to be able to bring you news regarding our 2020 flu vaccination programme which will begin in early October and our appointment booking line is now open.  Please call us on 01577 862112 to book your appointment and protect yourself from seasonal flu.

Please be aware that due to the volume of calls being handled it may take longer than normal for your call to be answered.  Our team is working hard so please be patient and bear with us.

Due to the on-going Coronavirus pandemic our clinics will run differently from those held in previous years and patients who have been vaccinated before will see some essential changes.

We will have strict Coronavirus precautions in place to ensure the protection of you and our colleagues including:

  • social distancing measures;
  • one-way systems for the flow of people inside the Health Centre;
  • no toilet facilities;
  • external waiting space only – please do not arrive early unless you are able to wait outside until your appointment time and please do wear weather appropriate clothing and bring an umbrella!

 

Only patients with pre-booked appointments will be seen for flu vaccinations on published Vaccination Days.  Patients with any other medical problem which requires attention on that day should contact NHS24 or Fife Primary Care Emergency Service on 111.

The information below provides details on how each practice will operate their clinics.
