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 5 GP partners, 1 salaried GP, 3 long term locum GPs, 2 practice nurses, 1 of whom is also the practice manager, 1 treament room nurse, a healthcare assistant and a team of administrative and reception 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. A doctor 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.

We are now doing extended hours and are open for early morning appointments on a Friday from 0700. These appointments are available with both Nurse and Doctor, although a choice of Doctor may not be available.

Practice News

Dr Sarah McCready has left the practice as of July 2016. We would like to thank her for her contribution to our practice over the last 10 years.

We now have a new GP, Dr Naeem Shoukat, who started in August 2016 and we hope you will all make him feel very welcome!
