Since moving to Kippen some 19 years ago, we have thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities this village has to offer, but perhaps one of the most beneficial to life here has been the tremendous service we receive from the Surgery and all its staff. Today, it seems to be the norm for the media to decry the NHS, although everyone else who has had call to use the service normally has nothing but praise for the treatment received, and for the dedication of all the staff.
Whilst it appears that some people will complain about anything, everyone we have spoken to has had nothing but praise for our Surgery. To be able to guarantee that you can see a doctor on the day needed seems to be a rarity today, with tales of having to wait days for an appointment in other practices. Also, to have access to all the other services provided at the Surgery is greatly appreciated. Finally, to have a Pharmacy on site is such a benefit, rather than having to go into Stirling when, in all probability, you are not feeling on top form or may not have transport readily available.
We await with interest to see the new improved Surgery, but we have no doubt we will still greatly benefit from an excellent service.
