A didn't know that there was one there Anne, only knew the one up the Maryhill Road .If I remember rightly it was a wee cold office but at times cozy wae the wee electric fire on. A wee lady would come to open the place up before the Dr arrived in her Mercedes Benz. rolleyes.gif

Some memories on this thread.
I came up from England on holiday with my wife and kids and took my sick daughter down to the local doctor's surgery. Waiting room had 2 or 3 woman sitting there and all the rest were men. Immediately to the left as I went in was a wee cubicle with a sliding glass window. As the place was packed I waited outside with another 6 or 7 men.
Few minutes later the doctor's assistant goes into the wee cubicle, slides back the glass and calls out, "Sick lines!" and within minutes there's only me, my daughter and the couple of women left.
The assistant just filled out and stamped the lines to save the doctor having to waste his time.
"Sore back.
"Sore heid."
"Sore haun."
"Stiff knee."
... etc. etc.. rolleyes.gif

Wait a minute ... I've got my eye on a burd.

... Some try to tell me thoughts they cannot defend ...

When I lived in Renfrew as a child our GP was a Dr Ian Henderson, known to all as 'Doctor Ian'. i remember him as a tall, thin man with a walrus moustache who always wore a bowler hat which he always took off when entering our single-end and placed it on the bed beside me. He was the epitome of the 'family doctor' and knew every child by its first names and was the gentlest of men. One day, I was playing with my pals and suffered a gash to my forehead. My Dad took me to the surgery where I was treated by the latest member of the practice, Dr Hastings Banda who eventually became the first President of Malawi. He sewed 3 stitches in me and I have the scar to this day.

I have a cousin, Dr Ian Russell who was a GP in Glasgow for many years, somewhere near Ibrox, Does anyone remember him?
