Noticeboard

WORK WILL START ON MONDAY 20TH NOVEMBER 2017 IN CONSTITUTION STREET (BETWEEN DRUMMOND STREET AND HILLTOWN) THIS WORK WILL BE SPLIT INTO 2 PHASES TO MINIMISE DISRUPTION.  ALL WORKS WILL BE COMPLETED WITHIN APPROX 4 WEEKS.  PLEASE TAKE THIS INTO CONSIDERATION WHEN MAKING YOUR WAY TO THE SURGERY.

We are delighted to welcome two new GP's to Hillbank Health Centre.  Dr Liusaidh Mathieson and Dr Joanne Russell,  we wish them all the very best.

For results of blood test etc requested by your GP please phone our results clinic between 2.30 and 4.30 any day.  Please give these requests at least a week to come back.  Any Tests requested by hospital clinicians will be reported back to them.

Should I see the Doctor or Nurse Practitioner?  Nurse Practitioners are highly trained specialist nurses who have completed further education and training so that they can provide advanced nursing care and prescribe medication.  They can provide treatment and advice for many of the problems that traditionally you saw your Dr about in the past.  If you are unsure if they can deal with your problem please ask at Reception.

Test Results

Most  blood, urine or xray result take about a week.  Other tests can take a little longer before we are advised of any outcome from the hospital.  Please phone the results clinic between 2.30 and 4.30 on 221976.

Our practice policy is only to provide patients with results when the tests have been instigated at the surgery. All tests undertaken by Secondary Care i.e. Ninewells Hospital etc patients should contact the relative department to obtain their results.

Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
