Welcome to Bruce Medical Centre
PATIENTS PLEASE NOTE
Due to a shortage of General Practitioners we are having difficulty covering the same number of appointments we previously had when we had 6 GP's.
We are now offering 'ON THE DAY' appointments every week day, therefore patients wishing to be seen should call into the surgery or telephone the surgery from 8.30am on the day of their choice to be offered any available appointments for that day. The appointments are given on a first come basis. Patients can still request a GP of their choice.
The month of July this year will be particularly difficult and we will be operating a triage and emergency only appointment system during this time, therefore we would ask patients to make any necessary review appointments in advance of July
We appreciate your patience as we work through this difficult period.
Please ask the receptionist to help you with any issues that may not need a GP appointment, e.g. prescription problems, Med 3 Certificates etc.
Please also use LENS (Lanarkshire Eye Network Scheme) at your local optician for any eye related problems and also use the Minor Ailments Scheme at your local pharmacy when appropriate.
Please remember that our staff are there to help and although we are aware that it can be frustrating for patients not to be offered an appointment we are working under difficult circumstances and we really appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
We are happy to inform you that new doctors will be joining the practice from the start of August this year.
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.
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.
