The Practice

The practice was formed in June 2015 following the merger of Strathmore Surgery and The Calderwood Practice.

The Strathcalder practice consists of 7 GPs, 2 Practice Nurses, 1 Staff Nurse, 1 Health Care Assistant and administrative staff. 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 podiatry. We also have access to the local treatment room who is responsible primarily for blood tests, injections and dressings. The practice has close links with community pharmacists, dieticians, community addictions services, community psychiatric nurses and MacMillan Nurses.

We currently have over 8500 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. One of the Partners will then review your request and a "new patient medical" will be arranged.

Opening Hours

We are open from 0800 to 1800 - Monday to Friday. Between 0800 and 0830 is for emergencies only. Medical care out-with these hours is provided by NHS24.

Extended hours are available which consists of early morning appointments and late evening appointments with a GP, Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant.
