Life Threatening Emergency Call -999
You should call 999 or go to A&E if you, or someone you know, experiences a life-threatening medical or mental health emergency. These are cases where there is immediate danger to life or physical injury. A mental health emergency should be taken as seriously as a medical emergency.

Antenatal Care 

Pregnant women are looked after by the midwives attached to the practice.  They hold an antenatal clinic on a Wednesday morning.  The midwives will see women every four to six weeks.   We share the care of a pregnant lady with obstetricians, usually in Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin.  If there are no complications then there will be two visits to Dr Grays to see the specialist and to have a scan of the baby performed.  Planning a pregnancy requires some thought and there are several things you can do to improve your health and that of your baby.  The doctors or midwives would be happy to discuss this with you.

Child Health

Our health visitor is available four days per week and she provides support and advice on family health.   There is a drop in baby clinic held on the first Wednesday of the month which you are welcome to attend.  To arrange an appointment with the health visitor, please telephone 01340 882107.

Chronic Disease Management – The House of Care

If you have a chronic disease such as Diabetes, Atrial Fibrillation, CKD, CHD etc we will include you in the House of Care initiative.

Family Planning

GPs offer a full range of contraceptive advice in the normal surgeries.  To avoid unwanted pregnancies we offer advice to all age groups.  If you require the morning after pill remember you have only 72 hours to see a doctor. The practice does not, at this time, offer a coil fitting service.

Minor Surgery

Certain small operations, such as removing skin lumps, freezing warts, or operating on toenails can be performed in the Practice, but this is dependent upon the availability of an appropriately qualified GP.  Sometimes they will be done in a normal surgery or the doctor may agree another later date with you when we have more time.

Well Woman Clinic 

The practice nurse, Fiona Brant, runs a clinic for women between the ages of 20 and 60.  She advises on general health issues, such as exercise, smoking and drinking.  She will check blood pressure, take a cervical smear, if necessary, and teach breast self-examination.  Routine cervical smears are performed 3 yearly and you will be sent a letter when your smear is next due asking you to make an appointment.01340) 871210.

Well Man Clinic 

The men are not ignored!  Please make an appointment with one of the practice nurses who will discuss health issues such as exercise, smoking, drinking, as well as checks of blood pressure and weight.  Other tests, such as a cholesterol blood test, will be also be carried out if needed.
