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.

You can submit any enquiry through our website at a time that suits you. Just go to our KLINIK ACCESS and follow the instructions. This is much quicker than calling and there will never be a queue. Just select the service you want, fill in your details and following assessment by a clinician we will get back in touch with you. You can use KLINIK to request an appointment, test results, order a prescription or request a sick line.

If, however you prefer to speak to a member of staff then they will take you through the same questions as you will be asked on KLINIK. This will take much longer than using the online option.

The Ker Practice looks forward to providing a more accessible service for patients.
