Fares4Free - Service for veterans and their families



Please see information below from Unforgotten Forces partner Fares4Free, a fantastic service for veterans and their families

Fares4Free:

• Co-ordinate and provide free transport for veterans, helping them to combat loneliness and isolation, and providing access to important services.

• Can provide transport for any age group for essential reasons - this can cover anything from extreme isolation to health appointments and even assistance getting to benefits assessments, advice services, foodbanks etc...

• In short, if the referring partner feels the journey is of an essential nature for a veteran their family, we'll cover it. We are regularly at CAMHS for veterans' children.

• Journeys from Inverness, Moray and Aberdeen to Combat Stress or to tribunals in Edinburgh are not unusual either, whether it's a taxi all the way or help connecting at stations.

• Coverage includes Inverness, Moray, Aberdeen and surrounding areas.

Stop Smoking Service

Smoking is an addiction that for most smokers is hard to quit.

We are not here to tell you all the bad things about smoking as you already know what they are.  We are here to help, advise, encourage, motivate and support you at every step of your journey.  We will tailor a unique programme for you and support you in that programme.  Many people can quit on their own but there is much evidence to show that quitting with our help is four times more successful and that you are likely to stay smoke free.  With your determination and commitment, and our encouragement and support we are confident that you too can be smoke free.

If you would like further support

Phone/text Fiona MacLeod on - 07966 262 103 or ask at reception

A number of local pharmacies now offer a ‘one stop’ service for assessing women aged 16-65 with urinary symptoms. Pharmacists can now directly issue a prescription if it is thought to be appropriate. We hope this new service will provide an efficient and convenient way to deal with your symptoms.

  1. Are you pregnant?
  2. Are you allergic to trimethoprim or cotrimoxazole (Septrin)?
  3. Have you had a urine infection in the last 28 days or multiple urine infections in the last few months?
  4. Are you diabetic?
  5. Have you any kidney problems?

 

Please do not deliver urine samples to the GP practice unless specifically requested to by a GP or member of staff on their behalf
