SPIRE - NHS Scotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records. SPIRE is a service that will allow small amounts of information from GP practice records to be used to help doctors’ surgeries, NHS Scotland and the Scottish Government to improve care and plan services, and to help researchers to learn more from patient information held at GP practices. 

Patients across Scotland have been informed of the benefits of the service, and the confidential and secure way in which GP patient records will be used to help plan and improve health care services.

You have a choice about your patient record being used in this way. To find out more go to spire.scot

History of Highfield House

front_of_highfield_house[1].JPG

The grounds on which Elgin Community Surgery now stands was in olden times the property of Clan Dunbar of Northfield and Duffus. In the years either side of A.D 1390 - when the Wolf of Badenoch burned half of Elgin including the Cathedral and St Giles Kirk to the ground these Dunbars ruled as constables of Elgin Castle and representatives of the Kings of Scotland in the province of Moray. Centuries later on this spot the 6th Baronet of Northfield Archibald Dunbar built Northfield House around the year 1818.

This is the 3 storey building attached to the Community Surgery which faces South Street. In 1871 Northfield House was renamed Highfield House when it was bought out by Alexander Cameron, Lord Provost of Elgin between 1869 and 1875.
