GP Practices are Open

Video Consultations

The Practice is now arranging some appointments by video consultation through a system called "Near Me".  If you have been booked into a video consultation you will need to connect to the "virtual waiting room" five minutes before your appointment time.  To connect to the virtual waiting room you should use a smartphone or laptop/PC with a webcam and microphone/speakers.  You will need to use a browser to do this - it needs to be either Google Chrome or Safari.
You should click on the following link to connect:  Near Me

We are trialing a new appointment system, this is due to staff sickness and patients not attending for pre booked appointments.

We have changed the way for you to call for an appointment, Please call between 08:00-11:00 and 13:30-15:00. You will be asked for information regarding your illness, this has been requested by a GP. Our Care Navigators' have been trained on what to ask. Please be kind as we need this information to pass through our Triage system to make sure you are allocated the correct Clinicians.

If you feel your call is more urgent you can call in between times but the clinicians would expect these calls to be urgent.

We have a zero tolerance policy at our Surgery. Please be patient.

The Practice
Medwyn Medical Practice was established in November 2013 as a result of the merger of the Carnwath and Carstairs Practices.

We are a  GP practice offering primary medical services to the Carnwath and Carstairs communities as well as the wider practice area which is bounded by a line drawn between and including Biggar, Elsrickle, Forth and back to Biggar.

There are two surgeries, located in Carnwath and Carstairs providing services to around 6,000 patients.

With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
