In 2017, the Scottish Government and the Scottish General Practitioners Committee (SGPC) agreed vaccinations would move away from a model based on GP delivery to one based on NHS Board delivery through dedicated teams.

There followed the significant work around the COVID-19 vaccination program that is ongoing.

Clinics will again be set up in a number of locations across Grampian within secondary schools and community spaces such as sports halls, churches and any other large venues that can allow for social distancing. Measures will be put in place to ensure health and safety is priority.”

The www.nhsinform.scot website will have information about eligible groups for both Flu and COVID-19 boosters when this information is released.

Home Visits

Doctor's bag

House calls or home visits are carried out  mainly by our highly qualified .These  experienced Emergency Care Practitioners and are usually only required in exceptional cases – such as the terminally ill, truly housebound or genuine emergencies.    

House calls should be requested before 10.00 a.m., if possible. You will be visited at some point during the day

Please remember the doctor can see four or five people in the Health Centre in the time it takes to do one house visit. Requests for essential house visits should be made as early as possible to allow us to plan the day efficiently.

 You will not  be able to specify the clinician who will visit you. Genuine emergencies will be dealt with immediately.

The community nursing team deal with most of the planned house visits and constantly provide feed back information to the GPs. Routine visits are not carried out after someone comes home from the hospital unless it is medically indicated. Again most of these are dealt with by our highly trained community nurses.

You will also be visited at home by a Health Visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years old.
