The practice has been in existence since the early 1900s when a Dr Laurie moved to Bridge of Weir from Houston and, since that time, surgeries have been in operation in both villages. The first of the present doctors to join the practice was Dr Storey in 1998, Dr Fisher in 2002, Dr Parkhill in 2006 and Dr Thomson in 2014.

Training Practice

The practice is an accredited training practice since August 2007. We have a variety of grades of trainees working in the practice. These include FY2, GPST1, GPST3. At times we also have Medical Students in the Practice.

An FY2 is a qualified junior hospital doctor rotating through General Practice. A GPST is a qualified doctor undertaking specialist General Practice training. 

On occasion, as part of their final training, the GPST trianee may ask to have the consultation videoed, though patients are not obliged to agree to this. A full explanation would be given before any planned videoing of a consultation taking place.

All Video Consultations comply with all GDPR regulations.

Disabled access

Both our surgeries have suitable access for disabled patients, and all the patient areas including waiting room, consulting rooms and toilets have wheelchair access. Automatic doors are installed at both surgeries. An ear loop is available on request for patients with hearing difficulties.

Confidentiality

We always endeavour to be as discreet as possible when speaking with patients at the reception desk.  If, however, you feel your enquiry or discussion requires more privacy, please bring this to our attention and we will be happy to speak to you away from the reception desk.

Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is welcomed in all public areas.  If, however, you would prefer privacy, please speak to a member of staff who will direct you to a quiet/private area.

When Should I Worry Leaflet

Having an ill child can be a very scary experience for parents. If you understand more about the illness it can help you to feel more in control. This booklet is for parents (and older children) and deals with common infections in children who are normally healthy. It is not meant for children who have ongoing health problems such as asthma, heart, or kidney problems. You should not rely on the advice in this leaflet for children who are less than 3 months old. Babies younger than this can respond differently to infections
