Coronavirus and the Practice
Please continue to wear masks when visiting the surgery. This is in keeping with local NHS guidelines and to keep our patients and staff safe
Coming for an appointment
We are still advising patients to stay in your car when visiting the surgery for an appointment. The clinician will call you when they are ready for you. If however you are coming by bus, taxi or walking, you are welcome to come into the surgery and take a seat in the waiting room.
eConsult has several functions:- It can help you with self diagnosis using its symptom checker and gives detailed self-help information; it can help you determine the most appropriate place to go seek help, which may be your local pharmacy or the national 111 help line; and it provides a mechanism to submit a secure eConsult direct to the GP 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means you don't have to wait for the practice to open to submit an eConsult, it can be done anytime including evenings and weekends to beat the morning rush. The practice will then reply by the end of the next working day.
If you wish to submit an eConsult to the practice:
• Click on the "Get Started" banner below
• Click on "I want help for my condition" and then select your condition from the list. If you can't find a good fit, select "I want general advice"
• Work through the questions and then submit to the practice. We will respond by the end of the next working day.
You can add photos to your eConsult (important if you have rash to diagnose you more easily) if you complete the "I want general advice" eConsultation or any of the following templates:
Acne, Athlete’s foot, Bites and stings, Breast problems in men, Breast problems in women, Conjunctivitis/Sticky eye, Contact dermatitis, Eczema, Hives/Urticaria, Mastitis, Mouth ulcer, Rash, Stye, Warts and verrucae
Conjunctivitis/Sticky eye, Hives/Urticaria, Impetigo Rash, Ringworm, Warts and verrucae.

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.
