Antenatal care is shared by the doctors and the Team Violet community midwives based in Bridge of Don. Team Violet midwives provide continuity of care for women throughout their pregnancy and after.
To see a midwife to book your pregnancy please email [email protected] giving them the following information:

First day of last period
Previous midwife within Team Violet if this is not their first pregnancy
Tuesday afternoon for immunisations.
Contraceptive services are provided by all doctors during normal surgeries. Please see your usual doctor. Specialist family planning services such as coil fitting and contraceptive implants are also available in the practice. Please speak to Dr Rhona McKeown, Dr Linzi Lumsden or Christine Paterson if you require further information.
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.
Click Here for details of child immunisation programme.
If you are thinking of travelling abroad you may need extra immunisations. If you require travel vaccinations and/or advice, please contact reception at least 6 weeks before you are due to travel.
Not all travel vaccinations are available on the NHS – a charge is therefore made for some vaccinations. Please ask the Practice Nurse for details.
The following clinics provide private travel advice and immunisation. There will be charges for this service:

Well Woman Clinics
These usually include blood pressure check; weight; cervical smear and are provided during surgery hours by the Practice Nurse. Please also bring a fresh urine sample with you. We encourage women between the ages of 25 and 64 to have regular smears (3-yearly routine recall for 25yr-49yrs and 5-yearly routine recall for 50yr-64yr). If you would prefer to opt out of having the smear test please discuss this with your Doctor.
