As we are a teaching practice, there will be occasions when medical students from Glasgow University will be with the doctor at your appointment. You will be informed of this and should you prefer to see the doctor on his/her own please inform the reception staff.
We are also working in partnership with NHS24 to train Advanced Nurse Practitioners. These are highly qualified nurses who are in training to enhance and consolidate their skills and knowledge. On occasions you will either speak to them on the phone or see them face to face. All contacts are discussed with a GP before any definitive plan is made.
We are also working in partnership with the Scottish Ambulance Service to train Paramedic Practitioners. You may see them sitting in with a GP or dealing with you directly. Again, all contacts are discussed with a GP before any definitive plan is made.
