Practice Update

Dr Geddes

It is with regret that we have to inform our patients that as of Monday 7th of September 2015, Dr Geddes will be on long term sick leave.

We intend to employ a locum doctor to cover her sessions. We are sure you all join us in wishing her all the best over the coming months.

Nurse Meldrum

After many years of service with the practice, Nurse Meldrum has moved on to pastures new. We wish to thank her for all of her hard work and dedication over the years, she will be sadly missed by staff and patients alike. We wish her all the best for the future.

The Practice

The practice was formed in June 2015 following the merger of Strathmore Surgery (formally Dr Chisholm and Partners) and The Calderwood Practice.

The practice consists of 6 GPs, 2 practice nurses, 1 of whom is also the practice manager, a healthcare assistant and a team of receptionists. We have close links with the district nurses and health visitors attached to the practice. We provide a variety of general medical services including house visits, appointments, telephone advice and prescriptions.

Other services available within Alison Lea Medical Centre include physiotherapy and chiropody. We also have 2 excellent treatment room nurses who are responsible primarily for blood tests, injections and dressings.

We currently have over 8000 patients registered with the practice. The practice covers the East Kilbride area with the majority of our patients coming from the Calderwood and St Leonards areas.

If you would like to join our practice you should complete a registration form at the surgery and hand it to the receptionist. A doctor will then review your request and a "new patient medical" will be arranged.
