St Luke's Medical Practice.

We chose this name as St.Luke's Tower is a well known Carluke landmark, visable from our wing in our new health centre. Tower
  Also, St.Luke, in the Bible, was a physician.

We hope you like our new name, and our lovely new Health Centre.

Thank you for your patience during the time of our move.

We realise that we are continuing a heritage of medical care as a GP practice in Carluke.
Since the NHS began in 1948, Carluke has been served by a succession of respected GPs. Dr.Cuthbert, then Dr.Sommerville practiced out of a property in Clyde Street.  
Dr.Paterson joined with Dr.Sommerville in 1958, and for a few years, the practice was housed in the 'Templar's Hall'.
In about 1976, the practice moved to our previous premises in Market Place, where Dr.Paterson was joined by Dr.Ann Jackson.

Gradually, with more doctors joining, and changes in medicine, we feel that we 'outgrew' the old health centre, and plans were made to move to Chapel Street.
