Hello from Marnock Medical Group, we hope you are well.
Recently it has become apparent that being overweight puts people at higher risk from coronavirus. We understand that this message may not be relevant to all our patients, but if there is a second spike we would like to have tried to reduce the numbers of those who might be at risk as much as possible.
If you are not sure if this could apply to you please complete this BMI form. During the process it will let you know what your BMI is which can let you know if you are over the recommended healthy weight.
Once completed, you are given the option to be directed to NHS weight management resources if this is something you are interested in.
We hope this information is helpful to you.

MARNOCK MEDICAL @ LONDON ROAD
Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we have taken the decision to close the doors of the surgery at London Road from Wednesday 25th March 2020.
If you have an appointment, you will be asked to present to the window at reception on arrival and you will be brought into the building by the main door.
Prescription requests will not be taken at the practice. Instead we ask that you order your prescription online by clicking on the prescription tab of this website or by calling 01563 599300. You can also ask your local pharmacy to order your medication for you. Prescriptions will not be available for collection at the surgery. When you order your medication you should also nominate a pharmacy to collect your prescription for you which you can pick up at the pharmacy. Some pharmacies also offer a home delivery service if you are self-isolating.

We are very sorry to inform you that due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close Marnock Medical Group @ Kilmaurs (Kilmaurs Branch Only) from Tuesday 24th March 2020. This decision was made in consultation with Ayrshire and Arran Health Board and permission has been granted by them to close this branch. This will increase our resilience and allow us to be more robust which is paramount in the current crisis.
This is a worrying time for us all, however we would like to reassure you that we will continue to provide services to all our patients.
All Appointments, Home Visits, Prescription requests and any other business will be dealt with through our main branch at:
