Welcome to View Point Practice

Welcome patients, old and new, to Viewpoint Practice. The practice is long established and practises from purpose-built premises completed in 2010.

The picture shows a view of The Point, Stenhousemuir from a spot near to where our surgery stands today, hence ‘Viewpoint Practice’. The name also reflects our belief in the right of patients to have a ‘viewpoint’ on their health and care in our practice.
