Maternity Care

If you are planning to start a family and would like preconception advice, please make a routine appointment to see a doctor. We also have a leaflet ‘Preconception information for patients’ which provides comprehensive advice.

Once your pregnancy is confirmed, you should make an appointment with the doctor of your choice. At this appointment the doctor will discuss your complete antenatal care with you. The midwives attached to the practice are the “Green Team” and you can attend their clinics at either Newton Stewart or the Practice. The ‘green team’ provide maternity care throughout your pregnancy, birth and following delivery at home. If you have any bleeding in early pregnancy, you can contact the midwives directly on 01776 707722.(Clenoch Birthing Centre at the New Galloway Hospital)

Non NHS Work

Medical examinations for insurance, employment or HGV etc. can be arranged, by appointment only, directly with the doctor of your choice. Please note that these and other services such as completing insurance or passport forms and housing reports are out with the remit of General Medical Services and therefore a charge will be made. Please contact the receptionist if your require details of costs.


Please let us know if you are a carer. If required, we can help you access appropriate support and advice including referral for social services assessment.

Eye Tests

Regular eye tests are encouraged. For this you need to contact one of the local opticians.
