Well Woman Clinic
Cervical cancer is largely preventable by regular screening and 3 yearly smear tests are recommended for all women under 60 years of age. Smears are generally performed by one of our trained practice nurses at our Well Woman Clinics and routine health checks such as blood pressure monitoring will also be done. Written invitations will be sent directly to you. If you are unable to attend the appointment it would be much appreciated if you would contact the surgery to cancel/re-arrange the appointment.
Maternity Medical Services
Since 2009 woman can now book themselves directly with the midwife rather than be referred by a GP. An ultrasound facility for 12 week scans 'dating scan' is available at the surgery and is done by Dr. Showell. Subsequent 20 week 'anomaly' scans are offered at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital. Postnatal baby checks are undertaken by the midwife in the first few days and an 8-week mother and baby check will be offered by your GP at the surgery. Useful information about our local antenatal service can be found at the Aberdeen Maternity Hospital website.
