Over the past 2 weeks we have had to operate an emergency service only due to critical levels of staff absence across all teams due to COVID illness, this has included turning off econsult. We would like to thank our patients’ for their understanding and support over this time. By operating this system we have been able to continue to offer urgent care to those who required it.  
Whilst we are still significantly impacted by staff absences due to COVID illness, and by no means back to usual staffing levels, we are hoping to offer greater accessibility by re-opening e-consult on Tuesday 5th April. We would still request that this is used for urgent and emergency health problems currently, whilst we are not back to full staffing levels. Your local pharmacist continues to be a great first port of call for minor illness, and they are able to treat by prescription through the pharmacy first scheme.


As you are aware the practice will again not be carrying out you flu immunisations this year. Please do not call the practice to make flu appointments

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

Availability of Doctors

Due to outside commitments such as the requirement to undertake continuous professional development, be involved in NHS project meetings and citations to attend court hearings, etc, doctors may be absent from the practice, often at short notice. Locums are sometimes employed in the practice to cover these periods.

Doctors In Training

We are recognised as a training practice to teach doctors the skills of General practice. These doctors are fully qualified and have usually worked in hospitals for at least three years. We are also a recognised teaching practice for Medical Students.

As part of the training we sometimes make video recordings of the consultation for discussion with small groups of doctors only. Your consent would always be asked for before any such recordings were made and you would be able to withdraw consent at the end of the consultation if you changed your mind. If you feel uncomfortable about video recordings please let us know before the consultation. It will not affect the consultation.

We are grateful for your co-operation in the important work of teaching future GPs.
