All information given is confidential. They have a difficult job to do, so please be courteous to them at all times.

The reception staff can assist with a number of things, for example requests for sick notes, repeat prescriptions, etc. Please use their expertise to allow us to provide as responsive a service as possible.

Medical Student & Staff Training

We are a training practice, which means that we support medical students and postgraduate students to fulfil their training requirements whilst progressing towards completion of their studies. You will always be advised of the fact that your appointment is with a trainee and asked if you are happy with this before the appointment is confirmed. All trainees are supervised by a principle GP, and part of the training includes video consultations and patient satisfaction questionnaires. You will be asked if you wish to participate in these and are under no obligation to do so.

Turriff Medical Practice participate in Protected Learning Time and close for eight half days per year. This allows dedicated time for the GPs, nurses, and admin staff to undertake training and education to enhance their skills and keep up to date with developments which will ultimately lead to improvements to the care of our patients.
