Doctors and Staff

The Riverbank GPs

Dr J F Young
(Female) (Glasgow)


​​I qualified from Glasgow University in 1988 ( a long time ago ! ) I joined the Riverbank Practice in 1993 when it was " Dr Goldie and Partners" . I am now the longest serving partner in the Practice.  Every day in General Practice is different and I enjoy the variety in my job both in terms of the illnesses we treat and the patients we see. 

I am very much a generalist but have particular interests in Diabetes and in COPD. Additionally I am a Glasgow University tutor and feel privileged to teach medical students in their GP attachments. We have a hard working and loyal Practice team in Riverbank all here to help you in any way we can.
