Welcome to Tillicoultry Medical practice
For appointments, prescriptions or enquiries please call 01259 750531
We were approved as a GP training practice in June 2012, which means that we may have a GP Registrar attached to the practice for several months at a time. A GP Registrar is a fully qualified doctor with at least 2 years experience of working in hospitals, and who wishes to specialise in General practice.
We are pleased to welcome Dr Alison Hunter and Dr Sarah McCallum to the practice. Dr Hunter and Dr McCallum will be working as GP registrars in the practice from 2013-2014.
From time to time individual GPs or the GP Registrar may wish to video some consultations for training and education purposes. Your consent will always be requested both before and after such videoing, and further information will be provided at the time. Your participation in these consultations is much appreciated, but entirely optional.
Patient Participation Group: We are interested in trying to change our appointment system and realise that you are the people who experience it on a daily basis. If you feel that you have ideas and suggestions to put towards this change and can do so constructively then we invite you to meet with us to improve our service to you. Interested patients should give their name to reception staff and, depending on numbers, we will be in contact at some point over the next few months.
Donate Unwanted/Unused Medicines
Inter Care - Medical Aid for Africa
If you have any unwanted or unused medicines at home these can be returned to the medical practice. We are now registered with Inter Care, a charity that recycles medicines and supplies medical aid to Africa. Inter Care will collect the medicines from us and their team will check and sort them before they are shipped to clinics in Africa. For further information on the work of Inter Care please visit their website by clicking the link above.
"This year Inter Care has sent nearly £700,000 worth of surplus medical supplies to 125 clinics in Africa. We rely upon the kind support of family grants, donations and fundraising activities to treat people who would otherwise not have access to medical treatment. Please donate today and make this possible."
