Flu Season
We are now getting towards the end of the majority of the flu vaccinations in the practice.  Over the next few weeks the last of the at risk groups should have been in for the annual flu vaccination.  Anyone who has not yet received an appointment should phone the practice - around mid November.  NOTE - if you are housebound and normally have the district nurse visit, then they will be starting their vaccination programme shortly. 

We have over 2000 patients to vaccinate each year, so we are grateful for everyone's attendance and especially to the nurses for administering the vaccine.

Late Patients
If you are late for your appointment, the reception staff will check with the GP to see if you will still be seen, however if you are more than 10 minutes late you will have to re-book. If you feel you must be seen, please speak to the receptionist who can update the GP.

Vacancies at the Practice



Great Western Medical Practice is looking to replace our retiring full time senior partner who will be leaving the partnership at the end of March 2020, though we are delighted that he has chosen to remain at the Practice as a 4 session salaried GP.


We therefore welcome interest from forward thinking friendly GPs who would like to join our sociable, supportive and stable team.


We are a long established training practice with 10,300 patients in the West End of Aberdeen and offer the opportunity for GPs with any level of experience to join and help us in the delivery of quality patient care.


GPs who wish to work full-time or less as either a Partner or in a salaried role are very welcome to apply as we would consider appointing more than one person to the vacant post.


We enjoy, and are proud of, the high level of camaraderie we share and even on the most demanding days, greatly value the importance of meeting for a daily coffee.


If you are interested in joining our team, please contact us to arrange an informal chat with

Dr Elaine Howe ( )

Dr Valerie Morris ( or our Practice Manager

Mrs Pauline Irving ( who will be very happy to provide more information.
