Specialist family planning services such as coil fitting and contraceptive implants are also available in the practice.

Services For Children
We work closely with our Health Visitor to ensure children complete a specific programme of child development checks and immunisations by the time they are age 5.

To try and help manage the GP workload and make sure GP’s are using their skills in the best way the Scottish Government along with all of the GPs agreed that giving vaccination should be moved away from General Practice.
You may have already noticed that your GP no longer provides flu vaccination clinics, these are now run by health board staff, usually in different venues. In a similar way a large number of community pharmacists across Grampian are now providing a Travel Health Service. For more details please visit: https://www.grampianvax.com/travel-vaccination/

Well Woman Clinics
These usually include blood pressure check; weight; cervical smear and are provided during surgery hours by the Treatment Room Nurse. Please also bring a fresh urine sample with you.
Cervical screening is routinely offered every 5 years to:
- anyone with a cervix
- lives in Scotland
- is between the ages of 25 and 64 years
We encourage women between the ages of 25 and 64 to have regular smears (5-yearly routine recall). If you would prefer to opt out of having the smear test please discuss this with your Doctor.
