Welcome to Hillbank Health Centre
REMINDER: We are closed Monday 11th October 2021 as it's a public holiday. Patients are requested to call 111 with any urgent medical issues. Please call 999 for any emergencies.
We hope you will explore our website and the services we currently provide.
On behalf of all the team at Hillbank Health Centre, we would like to thank all our patients for their understanding and patience during the pandemic. We are all working hard to ensure all your health needs are met and we hope everyone is staying safe and well.
Hillbank Health Centre as you know it was opened in 1991 by the Lord Provost of Dundee but the original Hillbank Health Centre originated many years previously when Dr Gibson, Dr Troup, Dr Summers and Dr Yeaman formed a partnership and opened Skailbrae Surgery at 4 Dudhope Street, Dundee.
Since then Hillbank Health Centre has grown in size and the Howie Wing extension was opened in October 1995 to allow us more room to provide healthcare services.
The Doctors, Nurses and Staff are committed to providing our patients with the most comprehensive and appropriate healthcare of the highest quality through our continued commitment to excellence in the delivery of our services. We are an approved GP Training Practice.
We hope that the information contained in this website will enable you to get the most out of the services we provide. This site contains details of the surgery times & services we offer, plus suggestions on how to deal with various minor medical conditions. We have a dedicated FAQ's page which can be found here
Unfortunately, as of 01/07/2021 we have taken the decision to close our patient list. Due to high demand we are now unable to process any new registrations to join the practice.
We would like to thank patients for their continued support and patience. The staff and clinicians are all working very hard to keep up with the current high demand.

COMMUNITY VACCINATION CENTRE
NHS Tayside are setting up a new Community Vaccination Centre in Dundee. Many patient's will be receiving a letter from the NHS advising them to attend the centre for a COVID booster / Flu Vaccine. The centre is located in the former 'Zara' Store which is on the corner of High Street and Commercial Street, Dundee. The below map provides information on its location and parking / drop off points.
The new centre opens Monday 11th October and will deliver COVID Boosters and Flu Jabs over the coming months.
The first groups to receive their vaccinations in the new centre will be people aged over 70 and those classed as clinically extremely vulnerable who will be invited for COVID boosters. They will receive their appointments through the post and should look out for the blue envelope.
• This will be followed by COVID boosters and flu jabs for people aged 50-69, people aged 16-49 with a long-term health condition such as heart, lung or kidney diseases, unpaid carers, and those living with someone who is immunosuppressed. These groups will be able to book their appointments online in the coming weeks.
• Drop-in sessions will also be available for anyone who has not had their first or second dose of the COVID vaccine. More information about the timings of drop-ins at the new venue will be posted on our website and Facebook page.
