Those patients most at risk from Coronavirus will receive a letter from the Chief Medical Officer, Catherine Calderwood, giving practical and detailed advice on how to protect themselves and access the care and treatment needed.

The safest course of action for these patients is to stay at home at all times and avoid all face-to-face contact for at least twelve weeks from today, except from carers and healthcare workers who patients must see as part of their medical care.
Banchory Group Practice is a semi-rural general practice serving Banchory, a small town with a population of over 8,000. We also cover patients in the surrounding areas of Echt and Torphins to the north, Strachan and Finzean to the south, Kincardine O’Neil to the West and Durris and Drumoak to the East, serving over 12,500 patients in total.
The Practice is a long established one. Initially it was a single-handed practice operating from Bellfield Home but we now have 12 full and part time GP's and a dedicated and enthusiastic team of practice and community staff. We are strongly committed to training with nursing and medical students, hospital doctors and GP Trainees all on attachment at the surgery.
