Appointments may be made by telephoning 0141 531 6010/6025 or by calling into the surgery. If you cannot keep an appointment, please inform us as soon as possible as this will assist in oversubscribed situations.  Patients are requested to phone after 8.00am for routine appointments and enquiries. Same-day appointments are available, to be used for emergencies only.  Routine appointments can be booked up to 2 weeks in advance, sometimes more at GP discretion.

The practice offers limited late night appointments currently on a Thursday evening.

Out of Hours

Weekends and Night Cover

By dialling 0141 531 6010 you will be connected to Out Of Hours Service or, dial NHS 24 direct on 111 who will provide medical attention to our patients when the surgery is closed. Please remember that this is an emergency service only and not for long-standing or non-urgent problems.

Text Messsaging

We run a text service for your appointments, so providing we have your updated mobile number, you will automatically be opted in to this service.  We will send you a confirmation of your appointment and then a reminder usually around 24 prior to your appointment.  You can also cancel your appointment by replying the word CANCEL.  If you try to cancel too close to your appointment it will not accept it and you will be sent a further text to tell you this.

If you fail to attend 3 appointments within 6 months, you will be asked to leave the Practice and you should register elsewhere.

Communication Consent Form

  • I consent to the practice contacting me by text message and/or email for the purposes of health promotion, practice news and for appointment reminders.

    I acknowledge that appointment reminders by text are an additional service and that they may not be sent on all occasions but that the responsibility for attending appointments or cancelling them still rests with me. I can cancel the text message facility at any time.

    Text messages are generated using a secure facility but I understand that they are transmitted over a public network onto a personal telephone and as such may not be secure, however the practice will not transmit any information which would enable an individual patient to be identified.
