Johnstone – Quarryside
Quarryside Practice is a new and enthusiastic training practice in Johnstone. We are based in a purpose built health centre (2006) which accommodates 3 GP practices in total.
The practice consists of 4 GP’s, 2 ANP’s, Practice Pharmacist, Practice Nurse, HCA and specialised medical administrators. We also have an attached Pharmacy Technician and a Link Worker.
We are a FY2 training practice and thus able to offer a GPST opportunity to develop their teaching skills.
Quarryside Practice provides a methadone clinic, enhanced contraceptive services; such as coils and implants and joint injections.
Our patient demographic is very varied with a real mix of patients which give good balance to our services. We currently work to 12 minute appointments and are planning to move to 15 minutes in the next few months. Quarryside operates a duty GP system, where all excess demand is triaged by and dealt with by a GP/ANP. Thus, if you are not duty GP your sessional workload is fixed.
Quarryside is located in Johnstone, just past Glasgow airport off the A737, so you are travelling against the traffic – 20 minutes from the West End.
Most importantly, there is a drive through Starbucks and an Aldi between us and the A737, for convenience. Coffee is very important to us and we have a machine in the office to keep is going! We have weekly meetings and try to have lunch together every day.
