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.


Our Doctors

Dr Stewart and Dr Innes both started in the practice in 1984.
Dr Boyd joined in 1991, Dr Gemmill in 1992, Dr Macdonald in 1994, Dr Jack in 2015 and Dr Hughes in 2017.


Open Access Appointments

We run an Open Access clinic between
8am - 9.30am each weekday morning.

We are unable to accommodate a lot of people waiting in the shared waiting area in the foyer. We would ask you NOT to turn up too early. The receptionists will be unable to take names before 8am.
The Health Centre front doors do not open before 8.00am. Patients with a booked appointment (extended hours) can access the building from the rear entrance off the car park.

We will endeavour to see patients as quickly as possible.

Thanks for your patience.

Open access number check in system

Patients arriving before 8am should take a number from the box situated on the reception desk. This will be your check in number. When the open access clinic opens at 8am the receptionist will call patients forward in number order and add their names to the clinic. Patients can request a specific GP but please note that requesting a specific GP means you will not be taken in order as the other GPs will skip your name and you may wait longer.
