BSc (Hons) RMN
Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner
Jordan Hepburn, a GP Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner (APP) now works within our practice. If you have, or think you have, a musculoskeletal (MSK) problem they provide an alternative to seeing your GP.
They provide expert assessment of MSK conditions i.e. muscle, bone and joint problems such as back, neck, shoulder or knee pain. They can provide you with a clinical diagnosis, give you advice on how to manage the problem and suggest appropriate exercise for you to work on independently.
With your agreement and when appropriate, they can refer you to specialist services such as physiotherapy for supported rehab, X-Ray or orthopaedics. If needed they can liaise with your GP to arrange medication or discuss any non-MSK symptoms which might have been found.
You can request an appointment with the GP APP; you may also be directed to them by reception staff who have had training to help them guide you to GP APP. Your GP may also ask you to see the GP APP for an expert MSK opinion.
Jordan is scheduled to consult two days a week in the practice.
Jordan will consult in the surgery two days a week.

Reception Manager/PA to the Partners
Our receptionists provide an essential link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and test results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, managing financial claims, updating patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
Sometimes the receptionists will ask for some brief information on your current needs, particularly in urgent situations. Please help them by explaining your needs and they will endeavour to find the best solution to your problem. They are bound by the same strict rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses. Our receptionists, however, are not medically trained.
Clinical IT Manager
Primary Care Pharmacists
Pharmacy services are taking a crucial role in Scotland; most GP surgeries now have access to a pharmacist or a pharmacy technician with advanced clinical skills.
Pharmacists with advanced clinical skills and pharmacy technicians in GP practices will improve pharmaceutical care and contribute to the multidisciplinary team.
One of our pharmacists may contact you to discuss and advise you on your medication. Our reception staff may suggest a consultation with the pharmacist if your query is specifically regarding medications.
