Clinics & Services
In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a comprehensive range of clinics and healthcare services:
Chronic Disease Clinics
Coronary Heart Disease (Chd/Ihd)
If you have heart disease our practice policy is to recall patients on a yearly basis for review. Consideration will be given to your “at risk” factors including blood pressure screening.
If you are diagnosed with asthma or COPD then our practice policy is to recall patients regularly to review their progress.
Your doctor will decide if you should be seen regularly at the hospital, or here at the medical centre. It is our practice policy to recall patients regularly to review their progress. Along with this you will also be recalled on a yearly basis to have your eyes checked. This is normally done at the medical centre by a specialist retinal screener.
Regular reviews can be done either here at the medical centre or depending on your condition, can also be in a hospital clinic.
Progress is reviewed on a regular basis.
Mental Health Reviews
We review on a regular basis any patients with longstanding mental health problems to keep track of their progress.
The practice provides full maternity and post-natal care. During pregnancy it is important for an expectant mother to be seen regularly to ensure that both she and the baby are progressing well.
Child Health Surveillance Clincs
Children will be invited to attend for special development checks by the doctor and health visitor at 8 weeks, 8 months, 2 years and 4 years. The health visitor will sometimes do other development checks.
Well Person Screening
A simple screening exam is offered, including a limited number of tests with prevention in mind. You should attend for a consultation with the doctor in a normal surgery appointment if you have unexplained symptoms. Women can be offered a choice of nurses for a smear test and instruction given in breast examination. Men are advised on testicular self-examination.
You can see either the doctors or nurses on smoking advice.
A range of minor surgical operations (including warts) can be performed under local anaesthetic by the doctors.
Advice followed by vaccinations is available by appointment with the practice nurse for foreign travellers (including babies).
There is a small service available here at the medical centre. Patients are referred at the doctor’s discretion. Other than this the patient may be referred to a state chiropodist.
If a patient requires referral to the dietician owing to medical problems it is possible in some cases for the patient to be seen at our clinic here at the medical centre.
A physiotherapist comes to Crimond Medical Centre on a regular basis. Some referrals are still sent to Fraserburgh or Peterhead if the problem requires more intensive treatment. The doctor makes appointments initially.
