Surgery Closed - Training Time, afternoon of Wednesday 20th November 2019
We are closed for staff training on the afternoon of Wednesday 20th November 2019. For a genuine medical emergency whilst we are closed - please call NHS24 on 111
We now have flu vaccination appointments available to book on-line or by contacting the surgery. These are available to all our patients over 65 or those under 65 who are "at risk" (who have a chronic disease such as asthma, COPD etc)
New Patients Welcome
New to the area and looking for a GP Practice? We would be delighted to help you.
Fill out our registration forms and come and see us with your identification - we will set you up as a patient at the practice straight away.
Change in Practice Ownership
As with many other surgeries, Carden has a mixture of salaried GPs, locums and GP Partners who own the business.
As one of our partners is moving on from Carden the remaining two partners have taken the opportunity to work with Aberdeen City Health and Social Care Partnership (ACHSCP) to look at different ways to secure the practice.
Other practices have the opportunity to be considered to take over ownership of Carden and, if not, we will transfer to NHS Grampian and be directly managed by ACHSP.
Our services will continue as normal throughout and our staff remain available to assist with all your primary care needs.
Self Treatment and Local Pharmacy (including when to see your local pharmacy for a UTI)
Not all conditions need a visit to your GP, please click on our Self Treatment Link for information about many common minor ailments. Pharmacist are experts in medicine and your local pharmacy can also help with many minor heath concerns without the need to visit your GP.
Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) - use the flowchart provided in the link below to check when you should be visiting your pharmacy rather than GP for a UTI/suspected UTI.
Keeping Antibiotics Working Campaign
The campaign reminds us that a course of antibiotics is not required to treat common winter illnesses such as viral coughs, colds and flu. The video below will direct you to the Know Who To TurnTo website where you have options to select different services. Under Self Help and Pharmacist there is a link to "Coughs, Colds and More" which has brief information about self care, links to NHS Grampian Self Help Guides and the NHSInform and Antibiotic Guardian website.
Requests for "On the Day"Appointments
All requests for "on the day" appointments are for urgent issues only. These requests are assessed by a doctor to make sure that an appointment is available that day for those of you who have an urgent medical need. All routine appointments are available to book on-line as well as by telephone or in person. To see more information on the reason our appointments are set up this way please click here .
