The University Barclay Medical Practice is based within the Fraser Building at University of Glasgow, 65 Hillhead Street Glasgow.

The practice opening hours are Monday – Friday 8.00am – 6pm with additional hours on a Thursday evening 6pm – 9pm. We also open on a Saturday 9am to 4pm (by pre-booked appointment only) at the Maryhill Barclay Medical Practice, Maryhill Health and Care Centre. We are covered out of hours by NHS 24.

This GP practice is constituted under the National Health Services (Scotland) Act 1978 and is contracted by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to provide primary medical services under GMS.

Our practice can trace its history back to the beginning of the 1920’s – read a short history of Barclay Medical Practice.

Barclay medical practice services

The practice offers General Medical Services as well as a number of Enhanced Services. We run a series of nurse led clinics dealing with chronic conditions, as well as cervical screening, sexual & reproductive health and a travel health service. In addition, we provide an annual flu-vaccination programme, maternity services, physiotherapy and mental health. Please see our clinics page for a full list of our clinics and services.

The partnership uses the Glasgow interpreting service via language line and opts to use telephone interpreting over face to face interpreting. If a patient requests a face to face interpreter this will be requested from the Glasgow Interpreting Service. Patients must give advance notice of this request. All BSL interpreting will be face to face.

We are proud to be a teaching practice, training medical students from Glasgow University.

How to I register with the Practice?

You can register on-line or in person at reception. If you wish to see a Doctor you will then be offered the first available appointment. Your acceptance to be included on to the Practice list is at the discretion of the Doctor, and you must also meet the NHS entitlement criteria. If the GP is unable to accept you on to the Practice list you will be given a reason why your request to register has been declined.

How do I request a House Call ?

These are for people who are too ill or frail to attend the Practice. If you are unable to come to the Surgery, please call  0141 342 3600. You must give the receptionist as much information as you can, this is very helpful to the Doctor so he/she can assess the nature of your condition. The receptionist will pass these details to the Doctor who is on call. The Doctor will then contact you to discuss your request. It is important that you give the receptionist your contact number and address.
