Clinics & Services
All GP Practices are contracted to provide "essential services", that is, basic treatment of ill people. We also provide the following "additional services":
- Child Health Surveillance, together with the Health Visiting Team
- Contraceptive Services. Specialist services such as IUCD and Implanon insertion are available at the Family Planning Clinic in the surgery.
- Maternity Services in the ante natal and post natal period, together with the community midwives.
- Route Immunisation of Children, together with the Health Visiting team.
- Immunisation for adults in relation to travel. Not all travel immunisations are available on the NHS, and the surgery no longer operates a 'travel clinic'. Please enquire at reception for details.
- Cervical Smears - Phase 1 of Cervical Screening has resumed effective 29th June 2020, currently only for those who were invited BEFORE screening was paused, or who had an appointment cancelled due to the temporary suspension. If this applies to you please call the surgery on 0345 337 1150 to arrange appointment. Phase 2 for non routine screening begins 13th July 2020 and general routine screening is expected to resume provisionally from September 2020 (further information to follow). Patients in Phase 1 would have received their recall letters Patients in Phases 2 & 3 will receive recall letters at their designated time. Please do not contact the surgery until you receive your screening letter. Only those with letters will be allocated appointments.
We also hold contracts with Grampian Primary Care NHS Trust for the following services which were temporarily suspended in accordance with NHS Scotland Guidelines. If you have Asthma or Hypertension please see further information below:
If you have Asthma, the weblink below may be useful for learning further about your condition and what you can do to improve it. You can check your inhaler technique and download your own asthma plan.
Asthma plans are an important aid for managing your disease, which involves knowing your own "Peak Flow" measurement using a Peak Flow Meter.
A Peak Flow Meter can be prescribed by the surgery on prescription, requested via the prescription phone line. If you already have one then please let us know for our records as this may mean that we can manage your annual asthma review remotely when paused service resumes.

We hope in the future to be able to incorporate using home monitor readings taken by patients if they are able to do so. In preparation for this you may be interested in purchasing a home Blood Pressure (BP) Monitor. Recommendations for a suitable device can be found via the Blood Pressure UK Org website link below. It would be helpful if you decide to purchase one that you let the surgery know, to enable recording in your medical notes.
Upon restrictions being lifted we hope to resume monitoring at the earliest opportunity however we appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult circumstances.
