Notice

Sister Wendy McGregor will be leaving the practice on the 30th September 2020. She has been working here at Alison Lea Medical Centre for the last 17 years and has contributed so much to the development of the current practice and its successes. She had been instrumental in organising the merging of the Calderwood and Strathmore practices into our current practice. We would like to thank her for all the hard work and dedication she has shown to the practice and particularly for the clinical care and compassion towards her patients who I know will miss her.  She will be a considerable loss to the practice but we want to wish her well and the best for the future.

Practice Nurse

We have a new Practice Nurse working with us at Strathcalder. We are delighted to welcome Sister Anne Morrison to the team. She has a wealth of experience in management of chronic disease along with being a highly skilled practice nurse. Appointments are now available for reviews of Asthma/ COPD, Hypertension and Diabetes and can be arranged by calling the surgery. Appointments are also now available for smear tests and can be booked via reception.
