RCGP Scotland Practice Team of the Year Award 2017/18

We are delighted to announce that our practice has been awarded the Royal College of General Practitioners Scotland 'Practice Team of the Year' award for 2017/18. This award has been made for our involvement in the Govan SHIP Project which helps to improve the health and social care of our patients. The Govan SHIP Project is also being undertaken by the Blue Practice Govan, The Green Practice Govan and Dr Mair and Partners Govan. We are are very proud and honoured that our work has been recognised in this way by the RCGP.

As part of the Govan SHIP Project we have been able to employ the services of an Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner (Mr Eden Keillar). Eden is a highly experienced physiotherapist and will be with our practice on Thursdays and Fridays. He can be seen by any of our patients from aged 14 upwards. Please speak to our reception staff if you would like to book a physiotherapy appointment directly.

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
