The following clinics are provided by the practice nurse with an input from the doctors:
- Heart disease prevention
- Keep well
- Obesity and weight problem
- Alcohol control
- Wart treatment
- Travel Health Advice
These clinics are run within normal surgery times by the practice nurses. If you would like an appointment for one of these clinics, please ask the receptionist who will be happy to help you. The frequency of these clinics will depend on the number of people who want appointments. The reason that some of the clinics are run within normal surgery hours is to try and encourage as many people as possible to come to these health promotion clinics, the aim being to prevent or control disease at as early a stage as possible.

Contraception & Women's Clinic
A full range of contraceptive services is available from the practice.
Dr's Katherine Ogilvie and Dr Catriona Rundle provide a full range of specialised contraceptive care including intra-uterine devices and subdermal implants. Problems or issues relating to women's health eg contraception, menopause, menstrual problems, STIs, breast symptoms can be discussed with the Doctor or Nurse and an appointment would be required.
The practice is not a dispensing practice and there is no dispensary in the health centre. The nearest two chemists are situated on Perth Road.
We have a good relationship with both Colin Lowe Pharmacy and Boots Pharmacy on Perth Road and we have found both pharmacies to be extremely helpful and willing to advise patients who are experiencing difficulties with medication, giving advice on Minor Ailments and Smoking Cessation.
Many leaflets are available in the health centre. Please ask the nurse or doctor if you cannot find an appropriate leaflet. We often have access to other leaflets not on display. We try to keep these leaflets as up to date as possible. You may be issued with a leaflet during your consultation. This is to assist in providing further information on your clinical condition.
