A Message To Our Patients

As you are aware, the Calderwood and Strathmore Practices merged in the summer this year to form the new Strathcalder Practice. Both Practices felt they had a fantastic relationship with their patients and we are confident that this philosophy will continue to flourish under the new set up.

However, the merging of GP Practices can be an extremely complicated process and one which can be frustrating for Patients and staff alike. As such, on behalf of all Partners, we would just like to take the opportunity to express our gratitude for the level of patience and tolerance all our patients have shown over the past few months as we come to terms with the merger.

Be assured, we are all working very hard to build on the success we had in the past and provide an improved level of care within the welcoming environment you have become accustomed to. We will do our best to keep you informed of any developments in the future and would ask that you continue to be as patient and supportive as you have been to date... Thank you.

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.
