Welcome to the Ker Practice

The Ker Practice was founded in the early 20th century by George McKendrick who was joined by his nephew Dr G Gladstone Robertson, the famous ‘Gorbals Doctor’, in 1923.

Many partners have come and gone since then, but the practice has continued to serve the Gorbals area as well as Castlemilk, Croftfoot and parts in between.

The practice still bears the name of the Ker Practice after the Ker brothers, Gordon and Norman, who were well known in the community and partners for many years.

Although there are now many newer faces among the partners, it remains our aim to provide a high standard of care to all our patients.
