Clinics & Services
The following services are provided. Our receptionists will help you book the appropriate appointment.
Our nurses can see patients for family planning, travel vaccinations, health promotion, minor injuries, dressings, removal of sutures, smoking cessation and cervical smears. They can also follow up patients with hypertension (blood pressure), diabetes, asthma and disease of the airways.
If you book an appointment with a nurse who does not specialize in that procedure or do not allow the appropriate appointment slots (i.e. single, double, triple) for procedures (as outlined below), your appointment may be moved or cancelled. Unfortunately you can not book appointments online for any of the nurses.

Child Health Development and Immunisation
The Health Visitor organises a baby clinic once a week. One of the doctors is available on alternate weeks for child surveillance and development checks. We recommend that all children have had a full course of immunisations. Qualified nurses provide these in special clinics.
All vaccinations necessary for travel to other countries are administered by our nurses. Not all vaccinations are covered by the NHS, for certain injections there may be a charge which will need to be paid for at the time of your appointment (WE ACCEPT PAYMENT BY CREDIT AND DEBIT CARD ONLY). Please ask the nurse beforehand whether this applies to you. Even for non-travellers it is important to be protected against Tetanus and polio, please ask the nurse for advice. To assist with your travel consultation it is advisable to visit www.fitfortravel.scot.nhs.uk beforehand for travel/vaccination information. We recommend that you make an appointment 4-6 weeks prior to your departure. For further information including our price list please go to to the Travel Vaccination tab on the right hand side of the website.
