Welcome to Aviemore Medical Practice 

face covering


Please note that we will be closed on Monday 3rd August 2020,
which is a scheduled public holiday.

Important: Attend Anywhere    
Please Click Here for information about our Video Consultation service.

The surgery is open and we are working hard to ensure that core services are maintained. For your safety and the safety
of our staff, 
we would ask you to read the website carefully as we will try to keep it updated with any information and
links that might help you at this time.

During the Coronavirus pandemic, please follow the guidance below:

Whilst we appreciate all that people are doing to help the NHS during this time, it's vital those with non-coronavirus health
concerns still seek help as
they would have before the outbreak.  Your GP surgery is here for you, so please don't ignore
the warning signs, you are looking after yourself and the NHS by doing so.


Appointments

  • If you wish an appointment you will need to phone the practice on T: 01479 810258 initially. Our receptionists will
    ask for an outline of the issue you wish to discuss and you will be called back by one of our clinical staff who will
    assess the need for an appointment. Most appointments will now take place via telephone or online but a
    face-to-face appointment will be arranged if needed.
  • Please do not come to the practice if you do not have an appointment booked.
  • It is important that you do attend appointments that have not been cancelled be they regular appointments,
    child immunisations or hospital appointments.


Social Distancing

  • As we need to adhere to social distancing rules, the capacity of our waiting room has decreased considerably.
    This means that if you have to come in for a face-to-face appointment we ask that you wait outside or in your car
    where possible and call us to let us know that you have arrived. A clinician will come and get you when they are ready to see you.

  • We would also ask that adults attending the surgery for an appointment would do so whilst wearing a face covering
    they have brought in with them where possible. Please come to the practice on your own or with only one carer
    if required.

  • For children's appointments we ask that only one parent/carer comes along and to please avoid bringing siblings along.


Prescription Requests and Samples

  • Prescription requests should still be put in our outside mailbox, beside the front door (to the left). All prescriptions will be sent to Boots Aviemore for collection
    - please don't come in to the practice to drop-off or collect your prescription.

  • There is a blue drop box just inside the front door for any samples you may have been asked to hand in. Please put them in the box and do not approach the
    reception desk as the staff will be unable to take anything from you directly.
  • There is also a white box just inside the front door with empty sample bottles to take with you if you've been asked to do so.

Updates, Sick Lines and Out of Hours

  • For updates and links please see the Community Resources menu.

  • If you need a sick line for your employer, it can be downloaded here: NHS Isolation Note

  • During out of hours (6pm-8am) call 111, or in an emergency dial 999.


Aviemore Medical practice is a seven doctor medical practice offering medical services for residents of and visitors to Aviemore and surrounding area. We feel privileged to work in an area of outstanding natural beauty - the stunning Cairngorm National Park.

Our practice is unique in many ways - we are the only designated casualty unit in Scotland with no overnight beds, the only general practice in the UK that provides primary medical attention to significant numbers of skiers, snowboarders and other outdoor enthusiasts.

We also provide an immediate medical care service assisting other emergency services at road accidents etc. Please understand that at times this may result in one or more GPs being called away from the practice at short notice. We appreciate that this may lead to delays but hope you'll agree that if someone's life is in imminent danger, then this has to take priority over routine surgeries.

Our practice aspires to be a centre of excellence for medical training and we currently offer primary care education to a variety of doctors in training at various stages of their careers as well as undergraduate medical students. With our research involvement, we can provide a tailored learning experience for all.
