We offer a range of general and foreign travel immunisations by appointment with the doctor or the practice nurse. If you are unsure, please check with reception. your doctor or the practice nurse.

Child Health Surveillance
Child health surveillance checks are arranged for all children registered with this practice and are performed by Dr Leaver. These take place at the age of six weeks.
The practice is pleased to give advice on family planning including the insertion of the contraceptive implant.
We operate a computerised recall system for cervical smear tests.
Cervical smears should be carried out every three years for women aged 25 to 50 and every 5 years for women aged over 50 up to 64 and 364 days old. These are carried out by Marie Stephen, our lead practice nurse.
We offer shared maternity medical care in conjunction with a consultant obstetrician at Perth Maternity Unit. In addition our local district midwives visit before and after the birth of the baby. All antenatal appointments are now organised centrally from Perth. The contact number is 01738 473493.
Minor surgical procedures may be carried out at the surgery or at Pitlochry Community Hospital. Please see your own doctor for details.
We have a nurse who carries out a regular cryotherapy clinic fortnightly (usually on a Wednesday or Thursday morning or afternoon) for the freezing of warts and other skin lesions. We ask that patients do not make an appointment at these clinics unless you have been referred by your own GP.
