Welcome to Station Road Medical Practice
The doctors and staff at Station Road Medical Practice in Prestwick are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. 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 well-person check-ups. Please browse our website and learn more about how you can use these services.
Please see below for the latest practice information.
As COVID restrictions gradually lift we are adapting our service and appointment structure. We are currently experiencing extremely high demand.
We continue to triage all appointments, since many issues can be dealt with appropriately by telephone. Any patient who requires to be seen, will be seen, but we are still required to adhere to social distancing measures in the practice for the safety of our patients and staff.
Our receptionists are highly skilled in triage and appointing patients to the most appropriate health care professional. Please help them to help you by giving as much information as possible.
Over the next few weeks we will be adapting our system and trialling various ways of working for the future, please bear with us whilst we try to find solutions to best suit our patient population.
Our recent patient survey highlighted that the majority of our patients prefer an on the day appointment service such as the one in operation at the moment, but we will be continually adapting the service in order to meet demand.
It is helpful if patients can call for same day appointment requests prior to 10am.
We have now completed our COVID vaccination clinics, having administered almost 2,000 vaccinations for our over 80's, shielding and housebound patients, we are delighted we have been able to achieve this for our patients.
All other patients will be invited by NHS Ayrshire & Arran to attend one of the local mass vaccination centres. The practice no longer holds stock of the vaccine.
Please see below the link to the Scottish Government website for information on how patients can now access their vaccination status without the need to contact their GP Practice.
