Practice News & Announcements

Welcome to The Turret Medical Centre

The Turret Medical Centre is contracted by Greater Glasgow & Clyde Primary Care NHS Board to provide General Medical Services to patients resident in G64 (Torrance only) and G66 postcode areas. This includes the areas of Kirkintilloch, Lenzie, Auchinloch, Milton of Campsie, Lennoxtown and Torrance.

We have a friendly practice team which includes four GP partners, Salaried GP, a Practice Nurse and a Health Care Support Worker. The Turret Medical Centre is proud to be a teaching practice. Fully qualified doctors who are training to be GP’s are a welcome addition to our practice team. We may ask for your permission to use recordings of your consultations for training purposes. 

All of our patient areas are located on the ground floor and we have easy access for wheelchair users. We also have two disabled parking spaces in the car park at the front of the building.

Please ask at reception if you need baby changing facilities or if you need privacy to feed your baby. We will be happy to help.
