BEITH Health Centre have warned patients that there will be no surgeries – with the exception of emergencies – between Tuesday September 18 and Thursday September 20 due to essential IT maintenance.

The centre will be open but unable to process prescription requests or access patient records which are essential for providing safe patient care.

They will also be unable to view any letters or results sent by the hospitals.

Prescriptions are requested to be handed in by Thursday, September 13 to ensure they are processed in time.

A spokesperson for the centre said: “We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, however this issue is outwith our control.

“Should the maintenance work be completed earlier than planned we will update accordingly.”
