As part of the new Scottish GP contract with Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board the phlebotomy service is being moved from GP surgeries to central locations.
Our preferred location will be The Community Centre for Health, 547 Dumbarton Road, Partick, Glasgow.
We will be starting to direct patients to this service. To book a blood appointment at this location you will be advised by your GP, Nurse or by letter to telephone 01412017220, they will take your name and CHI number and arrange your appointment at a suitable time. Appointments will be available Monday – Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm.
If attending The Community Centre for Health is too difficult you will still be able to make your phlebotomy appointment at the surgery with the HCA in the mornings.
Dr Gambhir New Role with NHS Education
Dr Gambhir has taken on a new role with NHS Education for Scotland as Assistant Director for Postgraduate GP Training starting 1st November 2018. This means he will be reducing his work commitment in the practice from 8 to 4 sessions per week. We will be replacing his sessions so that appointment availability is not reduced. However patients may notice longer waiting times and reduced appointment availability for Dr Gambhir in the near future.
We hope you will bear with us during this transition period.
Shingles is a one off vaccination and this year we will be administering the vaccination to those aged 70. Anyone under 80 years old who has been offered the vaccine in previous years but did not wish to take up the offer can also receive it this year too. We will be contacting eligible patients around November.
