    On Saturday 6th February, our whole team turned out to deliver a very successful COVID vaccination clinic at Pollockshaws Burgh Hall. We were delighted to offer our patients this opportunity to come along to have the vaccination with some patients being vaccinated in their cars. The day was a great success and made all the more enjoyable by the wonderful accompaniment of Organist, Aaron Hawthorne who played tunes, old and new for all of us on the Wurlitzer. Thank you to Aaron, and to all of the staff at Pollockshaws Burgh Hall. Thank you also to all of our own staff and of course our hardy patients for such a well attended turn out on a cold and Wintry February day - you were wonderful.
