Right Service, Right Person

We aim to help patients find the right service for their health needs.

There are a lot of situations when a face to face appointment with the Doctor is not required as your problem can be dealt with more appropriately using new Community Services.

When you contact the surgery, the reception staff may ask you some questions in order to direct you quickly to the service most appropriate to your problem. 

Eye Problems

FOR EYE PROBLEMS YOUR FIRST PORT OF CALL SHOULD BE YOUR LOCAL OPTOMETRIST.

An Optometrist is the best person to assess urgent eye problems, check for eye disorders and treat eye conditions.  They have the professional training and necessary equipment to assess most eye problems.

Most local Optometrists are part of the Lanarkshire Eye health Network Scheme (LENS).  As part of LENS they can offer an appointment and assessment service for any concerns you may have with your eyes including: red eye, sore eye, deterioration of eyesight or any other disturbance of eyesight.
