Heilendi Practice Flu Clinics

GP TRAINING PRACTICE

We are now accredited as a General Practitioner Training Practice. A Doctor (General Practice Registrar) may join the Practice for training for a period of up to one year. The receptionist will inform you if this is the Doctor you will be seeing. As part of training we sometimes video tape consultations. This will only happen with a patients written consent.

To ensure we continue to meet the high standards required of training practices, we are assessed regularly by Doctors from the Grampian GP Training and Education Committee. This involves inspection of some medical records. Confidentiality is guaranteed in this, as in all aspects of Practice work.

 

ORDERING REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have changed our process for ordering repeat prescriptions.  Our online patient services is still available and we would encourage as many patients as possible to use this service.  It is available 24/7 to order your repeat prescrptions.  If you want to sign up to this service please fill out the registration form on this website and e-mail it to ork-hb.heilendi@nhs.net.  If you are unable to use this service please call us on 888270 after 10am but please bear in mind our phone lines are very busy. 

Once you order your prescription from Heilendi it will be ready to collect 7 days later at your preferred chemist. We respectfully remind all patients that maintaining your supply of medication is your own responsibility. We will not issue repeat prescriptions requested on the same day.

Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland after lung and breast cancer. Every year, almost 4,000 people are diagnosed with the disease. For men the risk of getting colorectal cancer over the age of 50 is 1 in 18 (5.5%) and for women the equivalent risk is 1 in 22 (4.5%).

The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme invites all men and women in Scotland between the ages of 50 to 74 for screening every two years. They are invited using their CHI number and a letter is sent to the address at which they are registered with Practitioner Service Division. Once a patient is 'called' they will be recalled during the same month every 2 years until they are 75.
