The GP Registrars attached to the practice this year are
Dr Michelle Kirkwood
Dr Amy Thompson
Dr Laura Grigis
Dr Alia Mahmood
A GP Registrar is a fully qualified doctor, typically with several years hospital experience, who is preparing to enter general practice by working in a practice for one year before moving on to a permanent post.
A Registrar attached to the practice operates as one of the GPs, but under the supervision and guidance of one of the partners in the practice. You may be offered an appointment with, or a home visit from, the GP Registrar.
As part of the training process, consultations with a GP Registrar may be video recorded. This will only be done with your prior consent and you have the right to decline.
Congratulations to Dr Charlotte Monteith who has now completed her GP training with our practice. We are sad to see her go.
There are no medical students assigned to work alongside our doctors at the present time.
You will always be advised by the doctor if a student is present and are free to ask to see the doctor without the student present.
If you have no objection the doctor may invite the student to conduct all or part of the consultation but the doctor will always remain present and the final diagnosis and any treatment will be the doctors.
Your cooperation in helping these students gain practical experience is appreciated by them and by the practice.

Who aids Michelle in the running of the practice and managing our clerical staff
The Receptionists will normally be your main point of contact with the surgery either on the phone or at the Reception desk. You will find they are all friendly, polite and approachable, and are there to assist you in any way they can.
Life can get hectic on the Reception Desk at times and emergencies only ever happen when there is a queue at the desk and every phone is ringing! We do appreciate your patience if circumstances cause a delay in dealing with you.

Health Visitor Team
Sandra Staiano RGN RM BSc PHN
Maureen Galbraith RN
Our senior health visitor is a fully trained nurse who can give general advice on health care. She, and her team, are involved with child health, child development, ante-natal care and care of the elderly.
The Health Visitor team should be contacted directly on
0141 451 0777
There is an answering machine on this line.
Health Visitors work both as part of the Primary Health Care Team where they take part in a number of clinics and as part of a wider team to promote healthy living within the whole community. They are attached to the GP surgery and work alongside practice staff but link with many other services and groups in the area. If they are unable to help you themselves, they can usually direct you to an agency that can.
