Changes to the Team -

From the end of September 2014 there will be some significant changes to our team of doctors.

Dr Hooson will be taking 12 months sabbatical leave from the Practice beginning on the 25th of September 2014.  He is planning to return to us in October 2015. Dr Kieran Brown will be Dr Hooson’s replacement during this period. He will be available for 3½ days a week.

After almost 25 years at Northern Avenue Surgery and East Bank Medical Centre Dr Kemplen has decided to retire from General Practice. Dr Hannah Walch is joining us from a Practice in Glasgow to cover Dr Kemplen’s sessions and will be available on 3 days a week.

Both Dr Brown and Dr Walch will be starting at the Medical Centre during September. We hope you will make them feel welcome.

As always, you are welcome to consult any of the doctors in the practice. If there is a particular doctor you would like to see or speak to please make this clear when you contact the practice.

We continue to offer telephone consultations and assessments from a doctor or nurse practitioner to all patients who contact the practice to request an appointment. This has enabled us to keep our waiting time for appointments down to virtually zero. Please call us between 8 and 10am to be connected to a doctor or to arrange a call-back. We ask patients to contact us by telephone and not to present at the surgery in person without a pre-booked appointment.

We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery childhood vaccinations and foreign travel advice.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.
