(SPIRE) Scottish Primary Care Information Resource 

NHSScotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records

From May 2017 we will improve the way we use information from GP patient records. These changes will help to plan and improve health and care services in Scotland.

SPIRE (Scottish Primary Care Information Resource) is a service that has been developed to help GPs, the NHS in Scotland and researchers to learn from information held at GP practices.

Ante-Natal Appointments

The government is now encouraging your midwife to be the first point of contact for all pregnant women.  This means that women should book their first ante-natal appointment with Lucy Watters, our midwive, as soon as they have a confirmed pregnancy test (home test kits are sufficient). 

Ante-natal clinics are run by Lucy on Monday, Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday mornings and afternoons. 

During the first appointment the midwife will discuss medical history and plan ante-natal care accordingly.  Patients can expect to have their first scan between 12 to 14 weeks.

Ante-Natal information packs will continue to be handed out from reception when the first appointment is made.  If the appointment is made over the phone please remember to come to the surgery to collect your ante-natal pack prior to attending your appointment.

Lucy can be contacted at the Community Midwife Office on 01224 550616.



The Health Visitors can be contacted on 01224 559806.

Our Health Visitors, Emma McMillian and Wendy Radcliffe are based here in Albyn Medical Practice. They work Monday to Friday providing a universal child health screening and surveillance service to pre-school children.

Health Visitors use the the Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC) Framework of Well-being and undertake the role of Named Person for your child, under new legislation Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.
