Welcome to The Kinfauns Medical Practice:

The Kinfauns Medical Practice has been situated in Drumchapel Health Centre since 1993.  We were a small practice formerly based in Dunkenny Road with Dr Pridle and Dr McCluskey and latterly Dr Robertson.  They moved into the Health Centre and Dr Grieve took over the practice where she served the patients in the practice until she retired in 2015.  The practice was then looked after by Dr Turnbull and Dr Coyle.   Dr Coyle has now left and Dr Turnbull has been joined by Dr Shotton.  As the Health Centre is situated on Kinfauns Drive it made sense to call ourselves The Kinfauns Medical Practice .

At the moment like the rest of the NHS we are receiving extremely high levels of phone calls and demand for appointments.  The vast majority of callers are polite and courteous and understand the difficult and skilled job that our receptionists do.  However we have a zero tolerance policy for the small minority of people who are abusive to our staff.   We would ask for your patience at this time.  If you have a problem that is urgent and cannot wait please inform the reception team.  They have been trained to ask for some details so that they can help you to get to the right care.  Please see this Scottish Government video for more information https://youtube/IsYgGXCFiRl

For all information relating to COVID-19 then log onto nhs.inform where information is updated regularly.

The Scottish Government requires General Practice and other healthcare settings to have different infection control and physical distancing guidance to other places such as hospitality and shops. This is to help reduce the risk to practice staff and to people attending the practice who may be at greater risk if they catch Covid 19.  The following rules still apply in General Practice:

  •  wearing of face coverings by patients and the public (unless you are exempt)
  •  physical distancing of 2 metres in waiting rooms
  •  contact your practice by telephone in the first instance
  •  wearing of PPE by staff
  •  screening of all patients for Covid 19 symptoms.

Please support your local practice team by complying with this guidance.

It is important to note that your Practice is still open.

The Practice needs to ensure that we can meet patient demand and prioritise patient and staff safety. We have therefore changed the current appointment booking system and all requests for appointments will be telephone appointments with clinicians arranging patients to be seen in the practice when necessary.  If you require medical advice you should contact us by phone and your call will be directed appropriately. The phone lines may be more busy than usual. Please ensure that your contact numbers are up-to-date as some new announcements may come as text messages.
