What are your opening times?
We are open Monday to Friday, 8.30 a.m. – 6.00 p.m. Closed 12.30 p.m.- 1.30p.m. except for emergencies.
When can I get the results of my tests?
The Clinician arranging the test should inform you at the time, but generally results are available 7-10 days after the test was taken. Please contact the Practice between 3.30pm-4.30pm for these, due to high demand for other service we offer such as appointments we aim to structure demand and reduce waiting times. If the Practice contacts you regarding a result please do not be alarmed, it could simply be that the test needs repeating after a certain time or the result indicates some medication would help with your symptoms. For results arranged in secondary care (bloods, x-rays, scans etc) please contact that department for the result.
Monday to Friday 8.30 a.m to 4.00 p.m. (closed 1-2 p.m.) please call 0141 531 8902

How do I request a Home Visit?
Please telephone the surgery before 10 a.m. if possible and select option 1. The receptionist will take some details from you to pass to the Doctor.
Home visits are for housebound patients or those too ill to leave the home. It is the clinical decision of the Doctor whether or not they attend for a house visit.
How do I make an appointment for a member of the Clinical Team?
You can do this by either phoning 0141 483 1740, in person at the reception desk, or online using the Patient Access system (you must request forms for this in person from the Reception before being bale to use this service).
- Pre-booked appointments whereby you can book an appointment up to two weeks ahead to see a doctor
- Pre-booked appointments for the Practice Nurses or Health Care Assistant up are also available up to four weeks ahead
The Receptionist will ask the reason for the appointment – purely to ensure you are seen by the most appropriate member of the Team or Service Provider e.g. if you are calling to make an appointment for cervical screening, you will see one a Nurse and not a Doctor for this procedure. Alternatively it maybe that the Pharmacy can offer you help for your medical issue via Minor Ailments or Pharmacy First. If you do not wish to give the reason for the appointment then please inform the Receptionist that it is a private matter, but note that if your appointment is with the wrong clinician you may be asked to seek help with the appropriate clinician or service provider at another appointment or time.
Can two or more people use one appointment to see a member of the Clinical Team?
No, when you arrange your appointment it is only for you. Each patient should book separate appointments. The clinician will only see the patient who is named for that appointment i.e. if you have booked an appointment but also wish your child seen then they will need a separate appointment.
Why can’t I see my Doctor of choice sooner?
There are a number of reasons why this might be the case – the Practice Manager or Reception will be happy to advise – but please be assured all clinicians have the same access to your records. If you choose to only see a specific Doctor for example, then that is your choice as a patient and you would be seen when that Doctor is sitting in surgery, however other Doctor’s may have appointments sooner.
I want to leave a message for my Doctor or the Nurse?
All messages will be recorded by the reception staff for the appropriate person and the enquiry will generally be dealt with within 48hrs; the patient will be contacted with the outcome.
