Noticeboard

For all COVID related health enquiries only - please click COVID HUB for more info or dial 111 any time of day or night. Please contact the practice for all health matters not relating to COVID 19.

Due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak we will be changing our appointment system on a temporary basis from Monday 16th March 2020. Anyone calling for an appointment will be asked to leave a phone number and then called back by a GP to discuss their problem. This is to minimise exposure risks to both patients and staff. For the same reason, online booking of appointments has also been suspended.

Any appointments booked prior to this point will go ahead as planned.

To minimise the number of patients who have to come to the practice we will not be performing smears or other routine procedures such as minor surgery until the coronavirus situation stabilises

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.

FLU VACCINES for 2020/21

We will will soon be starting to administer Flu Vaccines for Selected patient groups.  Due to COVID 19 and the requirement to maintain social distancing we will be contacting those Patients between the ages of 18-65 who are elligle for the Flu Vaccine with a set appointment to attend the practice to have this administered. It is important to keep to this appointment; it will be difficult to provide extra appointments to large numbers of patients who miss their time slot.  We ask that patients arrive on-time and, if possible, on their own so that we do not have too many people waiting in the health centre at any one time. Our first prearranged session for Flu Vaccination is on Sunday the 4th October for those who we have already invited. Further invitations for remaining patients will be posted in due course.

For patients who are 65 or over and for those who are housebound the Health Board will be contacting you to arrange your vaccine directly and this will either be administered in the health centre or at home by the Health Board rather than by the practice. Children will either get their nasal flu vaccine at school or from the Health Board.

Practice History

Previously known as The Blackwood Partnership, our practice is one of the oldest in Govan with a history dating back to the early 20th century. In 2015 we changed the practice name to the David Elder Medical Practice by popular demand from our patients.
