Our SMS alert service is now LIVE

We are pleased to announce that the new patient SMS alert service is now live. This means patients who have registered their mobile phone number with the practice will receive appointment reminders. Please note this is an opt-out service. This is because Cairn Medical Practice does not use patient SMS communication for any commercial or private gain but rather for individual healthcare benefits. The data opt-out option allows patients to opt-out of receiving SMS appointment reminders and alerts. To register for our SMS service please complete our consent form.

Advice for Patients and parents

It is important for people to check if they have any bottles from the batches of the blackcurrant cough syrups listed above. If they do, they should not take them or give them to others. They should return any bottles of the batches above to the shop or pharmacy they bought it from. The mould is not always visible so they should return any bottles of the cough syrups from the batches above even if they can’t see the mould.

Whilst the possibility of a reaction to the mould is low, if parents are concerned their child has had a reaction they should speak to their GP, pharmacist or other healthcare professional.
