Out of hours


Located in the Seafield area in the West of Aberdeen, Great Western Medical Practice delivers healthcare for 10,000 patients from the ground floor of a modern health centre.

The practice is made up of various healthcare professionals to meet extensive patient needs and offers a variety of telephone, face-to-face and video appointments between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.

There is parking available and the Practice is close to amenities including pharmacies, shops and local bus routes.

Repeat prescriptions can be requested by phone ( 01224 846746), by ticking the required medicine on the tear off part of your prescription and handing into your pharmacy for delivery to practice or by online services – see below (or wherever you have the details for vision on line services).

Currently prescriptions cannot be collected directly from the surgery but can be sent straight to a local pharmacy (which you must have nominated) or returned to you or a different pharmacy in your stamped addressed envelope (to be provided by you).

Your prescription should be ready in 4 working days at your pharmacy but may depend on pharmacy workloads.

Please ensure you order repeat medication at least one week in advance so you do not run out of medication.

If calling for more than one person, please ensure you leave separate messages.

GP practices are the bedrock of our healthcare services. Across Grampian we are working together to deliver the services you need.

Over the last few years GP practices have seen a huge increase in the number of people who need care and support. At the same time is has got harder to recruit new GPs, along with other vital staff.

Practices have changed and now have larger teams made up of many different professionals - for example you may have had an appointment with a highly qualified Advanced Nurse Practitioner or seen a Physiotherapist to help with back pain. These new 'multi-disciplinary' teams are of great value and have helped with the increase in demand - but the demand keeps growing.

We know some of you have real concerns about accessing community services. You might be worried help and support will not be easily available when you need it. The NHS, the health & social care partnerships, and GPs themselves are committed to building on the foundations we have; we need your help to really understand how we can move forward to a brighter future. Thank you for taking the time to fill in this short survey.

Sickness certification

You do not require a doctor’s sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.

Training and research

GP Registrar
We are a practice where Registrars come to train as General Practitioners and it is sometimes required to record their consultations on videotape. You will be advised in advance of this situation and will be asked at the time of attendance to give written consent. This will not interfere in anyway with your consultation and will be treated with strict confidentiality.

Medical Student Training
Teaching young doctors, medical students and student nurses is an important part of the work of the practice. You therefore may find a medical student in attendance with your GP during the consultation but please let the doctor know if you are unhappy about this.

The practice at times embarks on research felt to be relevant to the health of our patients. Any research that you may be invited to participate in will have been ethically approved and you have the option to decline should you prefer.

Telephone line options

Our telephone line has 4 options to choose from:

Option 1 – for genuine medical emergencies

There is some confusion around Option 1 – and Option 2 when patients are looking for urgent appointments that day. Option 1 should only be used for life threatening conditions such as:
• Breathing difficulties/shortness of breath
• Heart attack type symptoms
• Stroke
• Heavy Bleeding
• Palliative care
• Severe allergic reaction

If you call option 1 and it is not a genuine emergency you will be asked to re-dial and chose option 2. Please be aware we only have one incoming “option 1” line and you could be holding up a patient who is in an emergency situation.

Option 2 – appointments and enquiries –

Option 3 – if you are unable to attend the doctor and wish to be seen, please call before 11 am. Any calls after 11 am go to the emergency doctor to assess.

Option 4 – results line is available at the moment between 10 – 12 and again between 2 – 4 pm. This is currently under review and may change though patients will be advised.

*** The telephone number that is displayed when we call you has recently changed to 0300 373 0717, you will not be able to call this number back, this will be the same for calls from most of NHS Grampian***
