A WEST FIFE health centre says it's doing it's best to prioritise services as they work with reduced staffing levels.

The Inverkeithing Medical Group's staff levels have been affected by sickness and bereavement absences this week and they have advised patients to seek advice on minor illnesses elsewhere.

Sharing the information on social media yesterday (Tuesday), they wrote: "We are working with a reduced level of staffing due to sickness and bereavement absences.

"We are doing our best to prioritise the service and are dealing with urgent medical matters as quickly as we can.

"For advice on minor illnesses, please contact your local pharmacy, or visit www.nhs.inform.scot.nhs.uk

"Thank you for your patience and understanding."
