Travel Clinic

If you are planning on holidaying abroad and think you may require travel immunisations please be aware that you need to contact the surgery for an appointment at the Travel Clinic at least 10 weeks before your date of travel.

The clinic is only held on a Thursday morning.

Urinary Tract Infections in Women

If you call the practice for advice about symptoms of a possible urinary tract infection, you may be directed to one of the local pharmacies (Lloyds or Rowlands in Cults or Peterculter Pharmacy) who are offering an assessment/treatment service for uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTI's), in female patients only. You will be asked some very basic questions to establish that it is suitable for you to use this option. UTI's are not uncommon in women, are generally not serious, but are a significant nuisance, and usually respond well to appropriate treatment. In men, UTI's are much less common and are more likely to need consideration for further investigation.

Your Local Pharmacy

Your local pharmacists are well qualified to advise you on treatment for many minor ailments.

Repeat Prescriptionsmulticolour_pills

Patients who are on prolonged or regularly repeated courses of medication may be issued with a repeat prescription slip.  This slip allows further supplies of medication to be prescribed without the patient having to consult with the doctor every time. 

If you are unable to bring your prescription slip to the health centre for a repeat, please telephone us on the usual number 01224 733535 Monday – Friday after 11:00 am to request your medication. Alternatively, you can post your request to us, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope and we will post your prescription back to you within 48 hours. You can also re- order using the online services once you have registered.

Collection

Prescriptions will be available for collection from the health centre 48 hours (2 working days) after we receive your request.  Alternatively you can request that your prescription be sent to one of the local pharmacies (Peterculter Pharmacy, Rowlands or Lloyds in Cults) where your medication will be available for collection in 48 hours (2 working days). In the case of Rowlands this is now 72 hours.

Prescriptions can also be sent to Boots at Garthdee or Bon Accord but require 72 hours (3 working days) for processing before they are available for collection.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice pharmacist at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
