Welcome to Alva Medical Practice working out of Alva and Tullibody Health Centres
We hope that our surgery website is a way of giving patients access to up-to-date resources and information relating to our practice. We will keep it current with any news, developments and details that are relevant to the practice and our patients.
As well as a source of information about the practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will see this website as a useful resource with links to other reliable websites for health related information. If there is topical health information we will also add this to the website.
Once you've had a look at what we've done with the site, please send any comments or suggestions to Carol Broadfoot, Practice Manager.

1. From your chemist
2. Online (ask at recption for more details)
3. Using your re-order slip.
GP Crisis Forth Valley
Due to the national shortage of GPs across Forth Valley, if you have an appointment keep it. If you have to cancel for any reason please cancel in plenty of time. There are currently five surgeries worth of failed to attend appointments every week.
Other ways of accessing medical advice
If you become unwell and need a prescription for a minor condition, your local pharmacist can advise if you qualify for a prescription on the Minor Ailments Service. Pharmacists can now also provide advice and treatment of urine infections and impetigo.

Minor Injuries Unit
If you have a broken bone or a cut you can attend the Minor Injuries Unit at the old Stirling Royal Infirmary Maternity Unit. They are open from 9am to 9pm seven days a week and provide treatment for a wide range of injuries which need care but are not life threatening.
Minor Injuries Units provide treatment for adults and children over the age of 2. Children under 2 should be taken to the Emergency Department at Forth Valley Royal Hospital.
If you have dental pain or abscess you should see your dentist.
If you have a minor eye problem the optician can help with this.
Booking Appointments and Ordering Repeat Prescriptions Online
Ask at reception to register for this service.
If you require a double appointment, smear or medical, please phone the surgery to book this with the receptionist.
