Union Brae and Norham Practice is upgrading its computerised medical system on Tuesday, March 18.

Practice manager Hilary Ford said: “By doing this we will eventually be able to introduce improvements such as allowing patients to make appointments and order prescriptions online.”

Patients need to be aware of the following arrangements during the transfer phase:

Patients will not be able to book any appointments in advance for Tuesday, 18th March.

Patients will only be able to pre-book appointments up to Monday, 17th March – and again from Wednesday, 19th March when EMIS WEB is up and running

On Tuesday, 18th March there will only be on-the-day appointments available with GPs and Nurses

This is a new system and all staff, GPs and Nurses will need time to get used to it.
