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

Do you need advice about travelling to and from your medical appointment?

The Transport to Healthcare Information Centre (THInC) can help. They provide practical transport advice for people who have difficulty getting to and from medical appointments in Grampian.

The service provides a dedicated telephone service offering guidance on accessing suitable transport options to get to and from appointments when they have no means of personal transport. The centre can provide details of suitable bus or train times, contact telephone numbers and other services such as local dial-a-bus or voluntary car schemes.
 

The centre is the first of its kind in the UK and is a joint initiative between Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council, Moray Council, NHS Grampian, The Scottish Ambulance Service, Nestrans and HiTrans and is one initiative being taken forward by partners under the Health and Transport Action Plan.

Please note that THInC does not book transport but can assist with travel advice and that THInC is not the number for booking ambulance transport and does not guarantee a transport service is available.

 

Ambulance Transport

Ambulance transport is available for patients who need support to reach their healthcare appointments due to their medical or mobility needs, which would prevent a patient from travelling independently and would require the support of the ambulance staff during the journey.

To request ambulance transport, please call the ambulance booking line, on: 0300 123 1236 (calls are charged at local rates for both landlines and mobiles).  You will be asked a series of questions about your condition and if appropriate your booking will then be confirmed.

You may request ambulance transport up to 28 days in advance of your appointment.  If you need support making the call then please ask your Carer or GP.  If you need to cancel your ambulance transport please call 08003 891 333.
