General Practice

by Old Machar Medical Practice ( Sexual Health, Conditions )

Under today's NHS structure, the way in which GP practices provide their services means that each service is divided into a different category. All GP's must provide essential services, however the range of additional and enhanced services that practices provide will differ. It works like this:

Essential Services - All GP practices are contracted to provide “essential services”, that is, the basic treatment of people who are unwell.

Some of the Additional Services we provide are:
*Child health surveillance, together with the Health Visiting team.
*Contraceptive services including general contraceptive advice, oral contraceptive pills, contraceptive injections and implant fitting, and IUCD (coil) insertion.
*Maternity services in the ante-natal and post-natal period, together with the midwives from the Aberdeen Maternity Hospital.

Some of the Enhanced Services we provide are:
*An annual flu immunisation programme to protect the elderly and other "at risk patients".
*Regular monitoring, by blood and urine tests, for patients on a range of drugs for arthritis and bowel problems.
*Regular monitoring, by blood tests for patients on warfarin.
