The GP Partners, Management and Staff of London Road Medical Practice are delighted to announce that from Monday 2nd September 2019, we will be taking over the care of the patients at Kilmaurs Medical Practice.
From 2nd September the merged practices will become the Marnock Medical Group and will be named as follows:
Our Kilmarnock Branch will be called Marnock Medical @ London Road
Our Kilmaurs Branch will be called Marnock Medical @ Kilmaurs
There will be no change to the standards of care provided to you here at London Road. There will be work taking place on our server on Thursday 29th and Friday 30th August to merge the computer systems, so we will be running emergency clinics on these days, but otherwise it will be business as usual.
