Welcome to Old Irvine Road Surgery

consultWelcome to our practice which has evolved over the years and which, in 1989 moved from Grange Street to our purpose-built surgery in Old Irvine Road. The premises are adapted for disabled people and are easily accessible. In September 2000 we were one of the first practices in Scotland to achieve RCGP Practice Accreditation.

In November 2006 we expanded our services and now operate from an additional site at North West Kilmarnock Area Centre in Western Road, Kilmarnock, see the NW Kilmarnock Area Centre page for more information. We plan to provide a comprehensive range of services in surroundings which we hope are pleasant for both our patients and our staff.

Travel Vaccinations

NHS Ayrshire & Arran have set up a new travel health service. Basic travel immunisations will be given at an outpatient clinic in a local hospital. The surgery no longer administers or provides information on travel vaccines. To access this service you should go to the Fit for Travel website www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk where the main referral route into the service is via email on aa.travelhealthenquiries@aapct.scot.nhs.uk

Zero Tolerance

GP's and staff are working harder than ever during one of the most challenging times in Primary Care. However there has been an increase in violent and aggressive behaviour from patients. The Practice has a zero tolerance policy and will not stand for such behaviour directed at any GP or Practice staff.

Please help us work in a safe environment by treating our GP's & staff with respect.
