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.

Appointments

Appointments:-are available from 09:00 – 17:30 Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 08:30 – 17:30 on Tuesdays. Extended hours surgery is available 17:30 – 18:30 on a weekday (usually Tuesday or Wednesday)

The doctors and nurses are available by appointment only. Appointments can be made by calling at, or telephoning the surgery during surgery hours. Patients can see any of the GP partners.

You will normally be offered the first available appointment for any GP. If your condition is not urgent, or you wish to see a specific GP, or at a particular time, you may have to wait a little longer, depending on how busy we are.

Although doctors try to keep surgeries running to time, some consultations will take longer than others. We therefore ask you to please be patient if you are kept waiting a little beyond your appointment time.

Emergency Appointments

Emergency medical conditions are seen immediately. Patients who feel their condition needs same day attention will be offered an urgent appointment to attend.

Nurse Triage

The surgery provides nurse led triage system for emergency appointments. Your details are taken by reception staff, and passed to the nurse who can assess the situation and determine the best course of action.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
