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.
Attending the practice
Please do not attend for any appointments or come into the practice if you are experiencing any of the 3 main Covid Symptoms:
- High Temperature

- Loss off smell or taste
If you have an appointments booked, please contact reception on 01224 208312 to update us and rearrange.
Following the new Scottish Guidelines, all those who attend a Health Care setting in Grampian should now wear a Fluid Resistant Surgical Mask (i.e. the blue medical masks you see all NHS staff wearing). These should be worn for the duration of your visit to the practice unless otherwise instructed. This includes children from 5 yrs and above. Thank you for your continued co-operation.
To reduce the footfall within the practice, we are encouraging all patients to sign up with a Pharmacy for collection of prescriptions.
If you have a preferred clinic for collecting your scripts please contact the practice and we will arrange to have this setup. This will mean when you order your scripts they will be delivered direct to the Pharmacy of your choice and you should attend there for collection.
Please allow 4 working days for collection from time of ordering.

We have currently suspended booking of appointments on line - this allows us to check the reason for your appointment and deal with this by phone if appropriate to prevent patients visiting the practice if this is not needed.
Prescriptions can still be ordered using this service - please ensure that you advise us which pharmacy you would like to pick up your prescriptions from as these cannot currently be collected from the practice.
Where else can I get help?
NHS inform has a wealth of information to help you help yourself: https://www.nhsinform.scot/
Community Pharmacists (chemists) can help with many common ailments and illnesses and can prescribe some medicines too.
What about emergencies?
If it is a genuine medical emergency then you should call 999 and ask for an ambulance. If you need emergency care but are not in imminent danger then you should call 111.
Please be patient
Primary Care Teams have been on the frontline and have been working incredibly hard throughout the pandemic. Many of them are exhausted and they really are doing their best to help you. Just like you, they want to get back to as close to normal as possible, but we are not there yet.
We would like to thank all our patients for their understanding and help - keeping us all as safe as possible and allowing us to continue looking after your health at this difficult time.
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.
