PRESSURES FACING GP PRACTICES

Please take time to read the attached information recently published by Lothian LMC (Local Medical Committee) regarding the struggles faced by GP Practices.  We hope this gives you a better understanding and some insight into the pressures GP Practices are experiencing.  We as a practice are working as hard as possible under extremely stressful circumstances to provide the best possible care for our patients.

ADHD MEDICATION PRESCRIBED BY PRIVATE PROVIDERS

It has been agreed that NO practices in the North West area of Edinburgh will prescribe ADHD medications for NEW patients from private clinics, this is for Adults and Children.  

This does not affect patients who are already currently prescribed ADHD medication.
