GP staff have been praised for coming together to help successfully deliver flu jabs in Kilwinning.

Kilwinning Medical Practice and Oxenward Surgery were praised for their efforts delivering the jabs last week.

Community councillor Jackie Hamilton said: “I just want to publicly congratulate both health centres, doctors surgeries for the excellent way they’ve done the flu vaccination week.

“In fact, it’s so good they should do it every year.

“Well done, hats off to them,. Who ever came up with that idea it was excellent.”

Community councillor Jim Miller said: “I went down yesterday and it was great – I saw someone I hadn’t seen in 20 years.”

Members agreed to send the surgeries a ‘wee card’.
