With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

 

TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 panademic the Practice has a plan in place to ensure that we have capacity to deal with patient demand. 

 We will be running the Practice on a day-to-day basis and if you require medical advice, you should contact Reception by telephone and your call will be directed appropriately. A GP. nurse or in house physiotherapist may call you back. Our reception team may signpost to another health care professional outwith the GP surgery.

If the clinician feels that you should attend the practice there will organise a face to face appointment for you. To protect you and our staff we have organised timed appointments to limit the volume of people in the building at any one time.

 Please attend on time - not early for your appointment, come alone and wear a face covering if possible

The GP may ask you to send a photographic image via email.  The email address that this should be sent to is Clinical.s70997@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk 

Please only send correspondence to this email address if requested by a Clinician.  Any unsolicited emails will be deleted without being read. 

 

We would like to thank you for your understanding and co-operation during this time.

If the situation changes we will update you accordingly.

Lunchtime closures - the practice will be closed from 12.30 -13.30 each day until further notice for practice development and training. 

 If you need a doctor in the case of an emergency during these times please call 07912487499
