Welcome to Slateford Medical Practice

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.



*  Please note that the total number of patients that we can accept is weekly and therefore we cannot guarantee that we will have availability on each of these days due to the number of requests we receive.

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 07912 487 499



TRAINING AFTERNOONS 2020-  There are no scheduled training afternoons for the remainder of 2020. We will publicise  dates in advance should they be organised.  

Chronic Disease Clinics

Chronic diseases are currently being dealt with differently due to COVID. To keep you and our staff safe and to minimise the time that you would spend in the surgery your review will be dealt by our practice nurse by telephone as much as possible.

Up to Date Contact details

We are increasingly finding that the contact telephone numbers and addresses we have on record are out of date.  Please help us by advising the Practice promptly of any changes.  You can do this via the link on the Home screen or by handing the information to Reception.

Data Protection

On the 25th of May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in the UK. We are making changes to our Privacy Policy so that we are ready for GDPR. Please see separate section for details.
