Online service for appointments and repeat prescriptions.

 

We have an online service for ordering repeat prescriptions and booking and cancelling GP appointments at our Banchory surgery. This will allow patients to access these services via the internet even when we are closed. If you are interested in registering for this service please pick up a registration form from the surgery or download it from our information page. Click here for information.

For security and patient confidentiality each patient will require their own login name and password so will need to complete their own form and return it in person to the surgery.

  

 

Doctors in training

Doctors

In August we will welcome back our GP Trainee Dr Mary Duffy, who is in her final year of specialist training (also known as the ST3 year). During her final year she will undertake a series of exams and in-house assessments in order to qualify and become a Member of The Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP).

We have been an established training practice for many years and are very grateful to our patients for their support in helping to develop the next generation of doctors. As well as GP trainees, we regularly receive placements of senior medical students from Aberdeen University and offer 'taster' experiences to newly qualified doctors. The surgery and the community nursing team are also involved with the training of both undergraduate and post graduate nursing students. More information on training at the surgery can be found here.

 

 

Heart monitoring equipment A0AV_1_20110908_10931015.jpg purchased from patient funds

 

As a result of several generous donations to our patent fund this year

the practice has been able to purchase addtitional medical equipment.

 

One of these items is a portable heart rythm monitor which patients can use themselves at home to try and capture any palpitations or funny turns. This is in addition to our Holter monitor which allows 24 hour recording of patients hearts Whilst this is very accurate, recording and analysing every single heart beat (typicaly 100, 000 in 24 hours) it is time limited to record for a day only. The new monitor will therefore be given to patients whom experience heart irregulaties  on a more infrequent basis to take home and activate it when they feel unwell.

 

spotLXibrnnlcr_45NE0E1_product_MC.jpgAnother major purchase was of an automatic pulse, blood pressure and oxygen monitoring machine. This device allows our nurses and doctors to quickly  assess sickly patients at the surgery when they arrive or alternatively, can be used to monitor patients whom have received treatment or are waiting for an ambulance.
