Welcome to Garthdee Medical Group
Garthdee Medical Group was established on 23 August 2004 after the merge of two long established Aberdeen Practices, Rubislaw Terrace (founded in 1980) and Spa-Well Medical Practice (founded in 1894). The new practice is situated in large, purpose built premises in the Garthdee area where previously there had been no clinical services and since opening has established close links with the Robert Gordon University.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
The practice premises are strictly a no smoking zone and mobile telephones should be switched off whilst in the practice as they can interfere with some technical equipment.
FOR ALL Covid 19 related questions, please contact NHSG 24 on 111
We are open for all other non COVID 19 related queries and are running initial telephone consultations / triage system.
GP practices have remained open throughout COVID-19 Pandemic. Urgent medical problems are still dealt with by GP's, Nurses and other staff. As we move into a phased recovery, most medical services will start to come back on stream, but this does not, and cannot mean a return to normal. Just as the supermarket, coffee shop and office is a very different place, so too is the GP surgery. Much of what you may need to contact the surgery about can be dealt with without attending, so people across the country are being asked to phone first with telephone or video consultations arranged, and only those who need face to face contact are asked to attend to keep you and others safe with as few people as possible in the building. Because it's likely that those attending will have health problems, it's even more important to ensure safety so staff will wear PPE, and you will be asked to wear a face covering/mask. Contact time will be kept to a minimum for everyone's safety but despite this each appointment needs to be longer, and flow through the building will be controlled, and waiting rooms will seem very different. The way they are delivered will stay changed for a long time to come. We all need to feel safe when we use the NHS and need our NHS staff to be safe.
PLEASE SEE OUR LATEST NEWS SECTION FOR CORONAVIRUS UPDATES, INFORMATION AND USEFUL LINKS.
Following on from the Scottish Government guidance, the practice asks that patients attending the surgery could come wearing a face covering e.g. scarf or other cloth covering. This is not currently mandatory, but patient co-operation would be very much appreciated to protect both patients and staff. Thank you.
If you have a video consultation booked with one of our GP's / Nurses, please use the following link to start your call. Please note that you will have access to the virtual waiting room at all times but without an appointment from the GP, no one will connect with you for a consultation.
