*** The surgery will be closed on Monday 27th September for the September bank holiday. ***
People concerned about Coronavirus should initially go to the dedicated NHS Inform web page.
Please note we are changing the way we work in our current Coronavirus pandemic.
We will endeavour to continue to provide high quality medical care where it is required.
To keep you and us safe, we will do as much as we can without bringing you into the surgery. This means we will use telephone consulting a lot more, along with video-consulting.
You can book a telephone appointment up to 24 hours in advance. If we feel there is a need to bring you to the surgery, we will arrange this at that time.
See our home page for details.
As the vaccination programme rolls out, information can be found online at www.nhsinform.scot.
Alternatively you can call the COVID-19 Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013 to get information and ask questions.
Greater Glasgow is planning to offer future Covid vaccinations through community hubs. These will not be done in GP surgeries.
If you are in a group who should have received their first dose and have not yet had this, i.e. over 40s, you can complete the NHS Inform online Missing Appointment Form https://invitations.vacs.nhs.scot/ to provide contact details. If you are housebound the Missing Appointment Form should be completed via this link and contact details provided along with requesting a home visit in the additional information section.

Appointment Time-Keeping – Please Help Us
We have become aware of an increase in patient late attendance for appointments. This places stress on practice resources and has an impact on waiting times for other patients who have attended on time.
If you attend late for an appointment, it is very likely you will be asked to re-appoint.
We appreciate that sometimes surgeries can run late, because an urgent situation has arisen or because some patients require more time with the GP/nurse. You would be offered the same courtesy, should you require it.
If you are continuously late for appointments, or very late in cancelling appointments, we will deem this to be a breakdown of doctor/patient relationship and you will be removed from our practice list.
We would appreciate your co-operation with this.
Bowel Screening Programme
Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland after lung and breast cancer. Every year, almost 4,000 people are diagnosed with the disease. The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme will invite all men and women in Scotland between the ages of 50 to 74 for screening every two years. We would strongly encourage you to participate in the screening programme if you are eligible to do so. Further information can be found on the Scottish Bowel Screening Programme website or via the helpline number 08000121833.
