Novel Coronavirus.


Due to the ongoing and rapidly changing Coronavirus pandemic and to ensure the safety of patients and NHS Staff, we have unfortunately had to stop offering the following.

  • We cannot offer The Open Access Surgery in the morning (8:30 till 10:00 am)

Please phone the practice if you have a separate medical issue or wish to arrange Prescription Collection (0131 668 4547).

We will operate a Telephone Triage System to offer advice and/or offer an appointment if clinically appropriate.


If you are experiencing a New Cough, Shortness of Breath or Fever do not attend the surgery. Visit and arrange a test.


We apologise for the temporary changes, but hope you understand this is due to unprecedented problems the virus is presenting.  




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.




Medical Students


We are actively involved in teaching final year medical students from Edinburgh University. They are attached for 5 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.
