Welcome to Bishopton Medical Practice
At Bishopton Medical Practice, the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run numerous clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, joint injections, and childhood vaccinations. We always aim to get the right patient the right treatment at the right time.
Please see the "Minor Illness" section to the right of this page for further information and help which has been written in part by our own GPs regarding appropriately managing your own illnesses such as coughs and colds, time off school for infections, registering during early pregnancy, sprains and strains and minor injuries.
Please note that you only require a "fit note" from a doctor after 7 days off work (for each single episode of illness). Before coming to see a doctor you should complete a SELF CERTIFICATE form which will cover the first 7 days of illness. A printable PDF self certificate is available HERE
When you call us to request an appointment the receptionist will usually ask if you are able to give the doctor information regarding why you would like an appointment to see them.
This confidential GP request for advance information is very valuable for the medical and nursing staff, and to help direct you to the most appropriate person to see you. We are very grateful for your help in planning your medical care, however it is not a problem if you are unhappy to provide this.
Each 10-minute appointment slot is designed to deal with ONE problem. If you need to deal with more than two problems, please inform the receptionist and we will be able to make a double appointment for you.
For many minor ailments the local pharmacy on Greenock Road offers the minor ailments service which may often be faster and more appropriate than organising a GP appointment.
The health centre was opened in 1977 and built for a three-doctor practice. As Bishopton and Erskine have expanded, our practice has grown considerably and now includes six General Practitioners, two specialist nurses, one healthcare assistant and a team of ancillary and administrative staff. We are committed to providing high quality medical care for our patients. The Bishopton Medical Practice is not a Limited Company. The Practice is now an accredited training practice and we will have a GP Registrar working with us at various times throughout the year.
