Please see important information at foot of page regarding the surgery’s current situation in light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
Due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we will be closing the doors to the practice and cancelling all routine appointments until further notice. If you have an appointment booked, you will be contacted by a member of our team and, where possible, you will be given advice by telephone.
If you are in need of medical advice, please telephone the practice during opening hours on 0131-552-5544 and your request will be triaged. It is very important that you provide the receptionist with your full symptoms to allow the doctor to prioritise call backs.
We request that patients who need to attend the surgery cover their faces, especially their mouth and nose, with a facemask or a similar item.
If you require medication currently being prescribed by your doctor, please e-mail your request to [email protected] providing us with your name, date of birth and list of all medications you require. We will be sending all prescriptions directly to a pharmacy of your choice so please also note your preferred pharmacy in your e-mail. You can also order prescriptions through the website.Alternatively you can post your prescription through the letter box on the brown wooden door to the right of the main entrance. Also use this door to post any samples you have been asked to provide.
We are no longer taking prescription requests over the phone.
Anyone requiring dressing changes, staple or stitch removal will be given an appointment with the practice nurse as normal. Please call reception for an appointment.
There will be no open access for blood tests and injections. Please call reception and request a booked appointment.
For any patients being asked to attend the practice you will be advised of which entrance you should use.
There will be two entrances as follows:
- The main entrance to the surgery – please ring the bell
- Back entrance to the practice past the car park and turn in left between the practice and St David’s church.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU ONLY ENTER THE BUILDING USING THE ENTRANCE YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED TO USE.
