Keppoch Medical Practice has long daily opening hours. Appointments with GPs and the nursing team are available throughout the day.
The GPs offer early morning and evening surgeries. These are particularly useful for those who find it difficult to attend during the day. They are usually held on Tuesday or Wednesday mornings from 7:30 until 8.30am and on alternate Thursday evenings from 5.30 - 6.30pm. Appointments only.
Please note our telephone lines and reception desk are closed every Thursday from 12:30pm - 2.00pm for staff meetings and training.
When the practice is closed, phone 0141 800 0840 and your call will be redirected to Glasgow Emergency Medical Services (GEMS). Alternatively, you may call NHS 24, a 24 hour confidential health advice and information service, on 111. The local GEMS centre is at Stobhill Hospital and is open from 18:00 - 07:30 Monday to Thursday, and from 18:00 on Friday to 07:30 on Monday. It is also open on public holidays. You must phone first and be invited to attend. Transport will be provided if necessary.
House calls are made to those too ill or infirm to attend the centre. All calls to this service are recorded, further information is available at www.nhsinform.scot
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you really cannot wait until Keppoch Medical Practice re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

The practice and local area has many expert healthcare professionals and services that can help you, from a GP or nurse to money advice support or a community pharmacist.
By taking the time to answer a few simple and confidential questions, your receptionist can guide you to the best care that’s right for you.
The reception staff are trained to guide you to the right care.
The information you give to them helps the GP or other healthcare professional to plan their workload for the day, so that patients in the greatest need are dealt with first.
Everyone who provides an NHS service is bound to keep your private health information confidential, including the reception team. You don't need to share very detailed information but you could think before you call about how you might describe your symptoms to a friend.
If you prefer, you can use eConsult to send and request medical information directly to the practice.
