On Thursday 17th June, we will be operating a restricted emergency service, as we will be undergoing a full IT Migration. We will not be able to book any appointments that day, process any prescriptions or answer any general queries. We have one Receptionist and one GP in the building to take calls from anyone with a genuine medical emergency only. We will be fully operational again on Friday 18th June. Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.

If you have been requested to E-mail the surgery, please use the following E-mail address:

Please Note: Our direct dial number for the Prescription telephone line (01505 821716) is no longer in operation. It will ring out and then eventually cut you off. To request prescriptions, please call the main switchboard (01505 863223) and select option 1.


Currently, as is the case in most GP surgeries nationwide, all appointments are Telephone consultations. This is due to the ongoing impact caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and to protect both patients, GP's and staff alike.
You will only be offered a face to face appointent if you have had a telephone consultation with the GP/ANP and it is deemed that this is essential.
If you are allocated a Telephone consultation, this is your appointment unless stated otherwise at the end of this consultation.
If you are required to attend the surgery, please wear a face covering or mask. Our Touchscreen is now operational so please use this to check-in were possible.
Please ensure to use hand gel BEFORE and AFTER touching the screen. In addition to this, this screen will be cleaned regularly as are all other surfaces in the surgery.
We realise it can currently be difficult and frustrating for everyone in our daily lives and particularly if you are unwell but we do appreciate your patience and understanding during these unprecidented times.

New Registrations

In a further bid to minimise the amount of people attending the practice, any new patients wishing to register, please download registration forms & patient questionaire forms from our website and post this to us, along with a copy of your proof of address. Alternatively you can now email these documents (or any other documents which have been requested by the surgery) to:

This option will only be in place during the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic and providing you reside within the PA7 post code area.

For patients moving from Erskine or Inchinnan, you are asked to remain at your current practice until the pandemic has resolved.
