When you have an illness or injury that just won't go away, make an appointment to see your General Practitioner (GP). Your GP, also known as your family doctor, will carry out detailed examinations and provide advice, information and prescriptions. Your doctor can also refer you to specialist healthcare professionals.
Out-of-hours medical services in Grampian are provided by G-MED, and are integrated with NHS 24, Scotland's round-the-clock telephone advice service. If you need medical advice when your own practice is closed you should call NHS 24 on 111 who will give you advice or refer you to an out-of-hours doctor or nurse.
