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.


Appointments

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 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:

 gg-uhb.gp87112clinical@nhs.net

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.

Test Results

Test Results

When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Please bear this in mind and only call the surgery after sufficient time has elapsed.

Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor if advised to do so.

Please call after 11am to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request after this time.

The doctors are unfortunately not routinely able to directly telephone patients for normal test results; the practice policy is that for normal test results we would not ordinarily contact a patient. For abnormal results requiring action we would always make our best attempts to get in contact with the patient concerned.

Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we are only able to release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.

Please allow 14 days for blood, urine and stool samples and four weeks for smear tests.
