When it comes to matters of skin health, you’re in safe hands with our GP, Dr John Elder. With over 30 years’ experience as a GP and 20 years as an aesthetic medicine specialist, he can help with diagnosis of various concerns, as well as offering selected treatments and general advice. His clinical interests include:

  • Skin and minor surgery
  • HRT and menopause management
  • Sexual health and family planning
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Musculoskeletal medicine

Some of the treatments Dr Elder offers here in Inverness include employment and travel medical examinations; mole screening and minor surgical procedures; and various Wellman and Wellwoman screening tests. Other treatments, such as joint injections for arthritis, can also be given.


  • We offer face-to-face appointments with a skilled and knowledgeable GP. You’ll have time to talk through your concerns, undergo a skin assessment and be referred to the right treatments for you.

  • It varies between our clients, as it depends on what you need to discuss, but a typical consultation time is around 45 minutes.

  • Whether you need advice, an examination or a second opinion, Dr Elder can help put your mind at ease through assessments and diagnoses. He can also offer selected treatments and save you time via an earlier appointment compared to non-private.

  • Of course, whether it’s help with eating more healthily or advice on stopping smoking. We can also discuss possible drug treatments for those with an addiction.

  • When booking a private GP consultation with us, you can expect to be treated with the utmost respect and discretion. We understand how sensitive and potentially embarrassing your problems can be, and aim to put every patient at ease and get to the root of your concerns.
