LIST CLOSURE

 

From Tuesday 19/9/17, our list is closed to new registrations.  We will reassess this situaton weekly. 

 

If you are unable to find a practice, please call Practitioner Services on 0131 275 7038 for assistance.

 

REPEAT PRESCRIPTION TURNAROUND

 

Due to the ever increasing practice numbers and consequential workload, we have deemed it necessary to increase the turnaround for processing of repeat prescriptions from one working day to two. 

 

Any prescriptions requested online outwith normal surgery hours will not be received until the following working day and the two working days required will begin from that time.

 

TRUDI GALLACHER

 

We welcomed a new advanced nurse practitioner to our practice team from May 2017.  Trudi can be seen in open access on a Monday, Tuesday or Friday as well as having some booked appointments on a Tuesday afternoon.

 

ADMIN TIME

 

The role of GP is constantly changing to involve more and more paperwork. Therefore there may be occasional days when your chosen GP may not be available in open access surgery due to taking an admin day.  We don't have a set rota for this at the moment but if you want to check whether your own GP will be available we recommend that you call the day before attending and we will be able to advise you.

 

MEDICAL STUDENTS

 

We are actively involved in teaching sixth year medical students from Edinburgh University. They are attached for 3 weeks at a time.

This allows them to gain experience, and we would occasionally ask you to be seen by a student, supervised by one of your regular doctors.

Thank you for your help with this vital part of their training.

 

NURSING STUDENTS

 

In addition we teach nurses who are students on the Practice Nurse course.   These nurses are already experienced qualified nurses who are learning the skills required to become a Practice Nurse.
