Welcome to West Kilbride Medical Practice
PRACTICE UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT FROM 01 SEPTEMBER 2019 AND WEBSITE WILL BE UPDATED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
To ensure compliance with the new GDPR a copy of the new Data Protection Notice is available GDPR
Social Media Policy
Following recent activity on Facebook where patients of The Practice posted derogatory comments about The Practice in general we now have the following policy in place.
If any such posts are brought to our attention we will contact the patients. This will be viewed as a potential break down in the Doctor / Patient relationship and may result in you being removed from our list. If the comments are abusive or extreme we reserve the right to immediately remove you from our list and / or involve the Police.
You would not expect to read derogatory comments about yourself at your place of work, nor do we.
At present all appointments are "on the day". You will be asked by the receptionist to give some details of why you require an appointment, this way you can be directed to the most appropriate clinician.
Practice Nurse appointments are available to pre-book. They do also have some bookable on the day appointments available if required.
If you are unable to attend your appointment please try to make sure this is cancelled in plenty of time - these appointments can always be used by other patients.
GP Clinics Are Running Late!
Sometimes you will notice that the GP clinics are running late. This is mainly because patients wish to discuss more than one complaint in a single 15 minute appointment.
Please remember that the GP can only discuss ONE complaint in your 10 minute appointment. If you have more than one problem please ensure that you ask the receptionist for a double (20 minute) appointment.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
We operate the practice from purpose built premises with access for disabled patients is at the side entrance.
