What's new at North Glen?

Continued Provision of GP Services at North Glen Medical Practice

Following the recent retirements of Drs MacLeod and Davidson, we would like to update our patients on the current situation with GP services in North Glen Medical Practice. We would like to reassure our patients that we have been very proactive to recruit a replacement G.P. for our Practice, and we are delighted to advise that Dr Smaranda Lydon will be joining North Glen on 6th January 2020.  Dr Lydon brings a wealth of knowledge to the practice and we are very excited to have her join us.

However, between now and the end of December 2019, the practice will face challenges and this may result in patient's having to wait longer than usual for an appointment.

In order to support North Glen Medical Practice during this challenging time, we would like to respectfully remind all our patients;

  • Our Advanced Nurse Practitioner supports our G.P.'s, can see most health concerns and is a nurse prescriber and can refer patients if required
  • Our Nurse Practitioners are all nurse prescribers and offer a comprehensive nursing service and can deal with a wide range of ailments
  • The local Pharmacy is an invaluable resource that can also assist you with advice on medication for self care with minor ailments (please select Services from the top menu and Minor Ailment / Pharmacy from the drop down menu for more information)
  • Podiatry - Patients can now self refer and do not require to see a GP first.  Forms are available from our main reception area
  • Pelvic Health Physiotherapy - Adult patients can self refer under certain criteria.  Forms are available from our main reception area.
  • Pregnancy - Appointments can be made directly with the Midwife team

We thank you for your understanding during this challenging time.
