Iain McClure

Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist

Here at YourGP, we understand that for any parent, there’s no greater worry than that concerning their child’s health. However, when you turn to YourGP, you can rest assured they will be looked after by some of the most knowledgeable, experienced and caring healthcare professionals in the country – a description that’s certainly true of Dr Iain McClure, our Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist.

As well as a degree in Medicine, Dr McClure is a qualified Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, and had twenty years of valuable experience working as a Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist for the NHS before joining YourGP’s Gender Clinic. His achievements within that time are nothing short of inspiring.

His specialist interest in autism spectrum disorder (ASD), together with his dedication to the field, led to his appointment as chair and co-author of the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) guideline on ASD for children, young people and adults. He was also an Expert Reviewer for two of the three NICE guidelines on ASD. In addition, Dr McClure has led extensive government-funded research on ASD assessment and published many co-authored papers on ASD and mental health related subjects. Dr McClure has also enjoyed the positions of Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, Dr McClure also undertakes medico-legal work, having completed a degree in Law and English at Cambridge University.

For Dr McClure, helping patients and their families deal with some of the biggest challenges of their life is equally the most difficult yet most rewarding part of his job. Throughout his career, Dr McClure has shown unwavering commitment to his vocation, so if your child ever needs to see him, you should have no doubt they will be in the very safest of hands.

Back to all staff

The facilities and patient service are second to none. The treatment I received for my eczema was innovative, holistic and most importantly highly effective. My skin has responded to the treatment I was prescribed. I am delighted with the resultant, significant reduction in my symptoms. I was impressed by the caring, sensitive and professional treatment I received. This was in stark contrast to my experience at my usual GP and at private consultations with supposedly eminent and specialist dermatologists. Thank you.
