Redsky Productions will be carrying out filming at the Practice from 19th June 2017 until

October 2017 in order to produce a three part BBC documentary series about the Maryhill Group Practice.

Red Sky Productions will be in the health centre over the coming months to film a three-part BBC documentary series that will go behind the scenes of the Maryhill Practice. While the focus is on the health centre staff, the patient experience is very important, and the production team intends to capture some patient interactions.

The production team will be respectful of patient confidentiality and privacy, and nothing will be included in the programme without full consent. We thank you for your patience during this process, and please don’t hesitate to ask any member of the Red Sky team if you have any questions.

You may be asked to sign a consent form if you agree to be filmed

Scotland set to face major GP shortage by 2020

We have been hearing about the shortages within General Practice and we at Maryhill Group Practice are feeling the pressure as well. The national shortage of GP's has affected the waiting times to see a GP for a routine appointment. We have expanded our Duty Care Team and in doing this have created increased capacity for acute medical problems. Two new Doctors will be joining the practice in August, this will hopefully help alleviate the current situation. We thank you for your patience. We are actively trying to recruit new GP's.

Chronic Medication Service (CMS)

Are you on repeat regular medication ?

You may be a suitable candidate for the Chronic Medication Service (CMS).

How CMS works:- Your GP would issue you with a SERIAL prescription rather than a standard repeat prescription.

Serial prescriptions last for 24, 48 or 56 weeks and your Pharmacist will dispense it in instalments (either every 4 weeks, 8 weeks or longer, depending on your GP’s instructions). 

Having a serial prescription does not stop you making an appointment with your GP in the usual way. 

If you feel you are suitable please speak to your preferred community pharmacy who will discuss registration with you.
