Welcome to Hillbank Health Centre
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 was opened in 1991 by the Lord Provost of Dundee, with the Howie Wing extension being opened in October 1995.
Hillbank Health Centre originated many years previously when Dr's Gibson, Troup, Summers and Yeaman formed a partnership and opened Skailbrae Surgery at 4 Dudhope Street, Dundee.
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 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.
Patients aged 50-69 years old will be contacted via letter by the Scottish Government to invite them for a covid vaccination. If you are of this age and have not received an invitation, please click here. All other patients will be contacted when they become eligible, please do not contact the surgery to ask when you will be vaccinated.
Prescriptions: We no longer take prescriptions over the phone. We request that you fill in the repeat slip on your form and post it through our letterbox or email your request. Alternatively you can use Patient Services to order your medication. Please allow 48 hours for prescriptions to be processed.
We are currently operating a triage system. All GP/Nurse Practitioner appointments will be an initial phone call. If a face to face consultation is required, the GP/Nurse Practitioner will invite you into the surgery.
If you have a new continuous cough or temperature or change to taste or smell and would like a test for COVID-19 this can be arranged at https://www.nhsinform.scot/

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.
