Welcome to our new GPs

Scotlands GP crisis has deepened with one-in-three practices reporting a vacancy, the British Medical Association claims. Last year the BMA found that almost a fifth of practices surveyed had at least one vacancy for a GP but the figure has since risen from 17 to 28 per cent. Despite these worrying figures the practice is delighted to announce we have managed to recruited two new Doctors. Dr Vicki Thomson and Dr Alasdair MacGregor have joined the practice. We welcome them to the team and look forward to working with them both.

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.
