Practice NHS Services
All GP Practices are contracted to provide General Medical Services (GMS), defined by the British Medical Association thus:
Under the GMS contract, practices must provide essential services required for the

themselves to be, ill (from which recovery is generally expected), terminally ill, or suffering from chronic disease.
These services are to be delivered in a manner determined by the practice in discussion with the patient. Management of patients includes offering consultation, and where appropriate, physical examination, and making available treatment or further investigation as is necessary and appropriate, including referral to other health
Our contract for GMS Services is held with Greater Glasgow & Clyde Health Board. If you have any concerns about our services provided you can contact the Board HERE.
We also provide the following Additional and Enhanced Services:
We can provide a full range of contraceptive services; any GP, Sr Brown and Sr Jackson can do your “pill check” and advise you regarding alternatives to the pill, including the injection, the implant (performed by Sr Brown).

Our practice recommends alternative methods of taking your contraceptive pill to the 21:7 regime you may be used to, in order to reduce the chances of unplanned pregnancy. Please click here to download our information leaflet which explains the rationale and your options.
Child Health Surveillance
We will look after you, from pre-natal and conception counselling to antenatal care and postnatal follow up.
In most cases, on discovering you are pregnant you can call the maternity self-booking service on 0141 347 8422. If you have a chronic medical condition or are taking prescription medication, you can speak to us about how this affects your pregnancy.
The practice has invested in the latest 6-Lead AliveCor ECG devices. This allows us to assess various aspects of your heart’s health, quickly and on-the-spot in the surgery. These devices are approved for the assessment of palpitations, atrial fibrillation and other heart rhythm problems. You will only need to go to hospital for a formal paper ECG if that detail or a cardiology opinion is required.
Near Patient Testing
