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.
