** LATERAL FLOW TESTING **
With effect from Monday 17th January 2022, if you are attending the surgery for an appointment you must do a Lateral Flow Check that day before they come in. If it is positive please do not attend the surgery and instead call us on 0345 337 1170.
Following new Scottish guidelines, all those attending healthcare settings in Grampian should now wear a fluid resistant surgical mask. (i.e. the blue medical masks you see all the NHS staff wearing). These should be worn for the duration of your visit to the practice unless otherwise instructed. This includes children from 5 years and above. Thank you for your continued cooperation.
17th July 2020 Covid -19
GP Practices have remained open throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic. Urgent medical problems are still dealt with by GPs, nurses and other staff. As we move into a phased recovery, most medical services will start to come back in stream, but this does not, and cannot mean a return to normal. Just as the supermarket, the coffee shop and the office is a very different place, so too is the GP surgery. Much of what you may need to contact the surgery about can be dealt with without attending there, so people across the country are being asked to phone or email first, with telephone or video calls arranged, and only those who need face to face contact are asked to attend to keep you and others safe with as few people as possible in the buildings. Because it's likely that those attending will have health problems, it's even more important to ensure safety than it is in the supermarket or office so staff will wear PPE, and you will be asked to wear a face covering/mask. Contact will be kept to a minimum for everyone's safety but despite this each appointment needs to be longer, and flow through the buildings will be controlled, and waiting rooms will seem very different. The way they are delivered will stay changed for a very long time to come. We all need to feel safe when we use the NHS and need our NHS staff to be safe.
Please remember when attending surgery for a face to face appointment to wear a face covering or face mask and to come to the appointment on your own where possible. If you need to be accompanied to an appointment please ensure it is only 1 other person. Thank you!

The non-limited partnership of Kincorth Medical Practice is contracted by Grampian Primary Care NHS Trust to provide general medical services to patients and we now look after over 13,200 patients. Patients can be seen at either of our surgeries.
