Please note we are closed for training every Wednesday 13:00 – 14:00 - apart from pre-arranged appointments
If you require urgent advice outside of normal working hours call NHS 24 on:
or see the NHS 24 website at: www.nhs24.com
(If you telephone our normal surgery number outside of surgery hours, a taped message will clearly inform you of the NHS 24 number to telephone for out-of-hours emergencies).
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Please DO NOT come to the practice unless we have asked you to come. Our front door and waiting room are closed and we are only seeing patients face to face if necessary for an examination or nursing procedure.
Please DO NOT come to the Surgery with requests for repeat medication. Requests can be made by telephoning the prescription line on 0131 669 9130, via online Patient Access, submitting a request to a local pharmacy, or putting your request in our letterbox outside. Please DO NOT come to the Surgery to collect a prescription either. Please indicate with your request which chemist you use, and we would be happy to send it there for you to collect.
Please wear a Face Covering over your nose or mouth if you have been asked to attend the practice.
Online appointment booking is currently suspended. Please phone us if you wish to make an appointment.
Please always try to let us know if you are unable to keep a telephone appointment, or no longer require it, since we will usually be able to use the time allocated to you for another patient. Please see our DNA (Did Not Attend) Appointment Policy for your information. DNA POLICY.
Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do require a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00am.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. They will phone before visiting to obtain more details.
In most cases sick children can be brought safely to the surgery, but if you are in doubt as to whether this is appropriate, please ask for advice.
Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website. You do not require a sickness certificate if you are isolating due to COVID19.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
We are proud to be a well-established training practice, helping qualified doctors, complete the stages of their GP training before they embark on fully independent practice. At times consultations, with your permission, may be videoed to help their education and assessment.
Medical Students may also accompany the Doctors and Nurses as part of their education. However, the patient's privacy always has priority and the students will leave if you are not happy for them to sit in during consultations.
We believe that achieving and maintaining training practice status enhances the quality of the medical care that we provide at the practice. It also enables patients to see a wider range of clinicians whilst allowing the surgery to benefit from the fresh ideas and approaches brought by young enthusiastic doctors.
If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill. We also require one form of photographic ID.
You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Both forms are available on the above "Registering Online" tab.
All new patients are encouraged to visit our surgery "POD" this will take measurements of your weight and blood pressure. If you have any on-going medical problems, or are on regular medication, you should book an appointment with one of the doctors.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.

We are delighted that Karen Osborne has commenced training as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner to complement our team.
GP TraineesAll GP's in training are fully qualified doctors who are training to become GP's. We have a Senior GP Registrar (GPST3) who is based at the practice for a year, a junior registrar (GPST1) who is with us for 6 months and a Foundation year 2 doctor who is based at the practice for 4 months as part of a training rotation.
Medical StudentsWe are very involved with the University and have medical students from the 1st, 2nd and 6th years regularly attending the surgery. The 5th year students often sit in with doctors during consultations and see patients under supervision. You may be asked for your permission for this to happen when attending an appointment and this is strictly optional. 2nd year medical students have teaching sessions on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, please leave contact details with reception if you would be able to attend these sessions to help with their training.
Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, and carry out cervical smears and other procedures.

The practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.
Our reception is staffed by Patient Care Advisors. They provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Our advisors make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.KristinLornaShirleyGabyKellyAliceGayleJillianLucyLizHannah
