From 1 July 2010 we are changing our normal opening hours and will no
longer open on Saturdays.
The new hours are designed to still allow those who work during the day
to access suitable appointments while giving us free weekends to allow for
changing family commitments.
The new hours will be:
Monday 8.45 to 1pm, 1.45 to 5pm
Tuesday 8.45 to 1pm, 1.45 to 5pm
Wednesday 8.45 to 1pm, 1.45 to 5pm
Thursday 8.45 to 1pm, 1.45 to 7.15pm
Friday 8.45 to 1pm, 1.45 to 5pm
We will be publicising these hours in the press and in
fliers to go out with patient recalls. If you have any questions
about the new hours or wish to make an appointment please do not hesitate
to contact us.

Local Cataract Surgery begins
The local CHP is
delighted to announce that the first batch of cataract operations has
taken place in Caithness General Hospital, Wick. This is great news
not only for Caithness General but also for those who find it difficult to
make the long road journey to Raigmore for surgery. Places are
limited and demand expected to be high but patients are bound to feel
their choices are greatly improved.
We are pleased to be accredited as a
part of the new cataract care pathway, providing both a referral service
and aftercare service for patients with cataract, pre and post
operatively, linking to the ophthalmologists at Raigmore.
