Noticeboard

Public Holiday Closure

The practice will be closed on Monday 20th September and will re-open at 8am on Tuesday 21st September.  If you require medical attention during this closure, please call NHS24 on 111.  Always dial 999 in a life-threatening emergency.

Seasonal Flu Clinics 

The seasonal flu programme will begin in September.  You can find out if you're in a priority group for the vaccine on NHS Inform

We are waiting for more details on the vaccination programme from NHS Lothian but we do know that:

  • You will be given your vaccine at a clinic set up to vaccinate large numbers of people quickly
  • You will be given a pre-booked appointment or invited to arrange your own appointment
  • All eligible 2-5 year olds will be sent an appointment by post
  • All school children (primary and secondary) will be offered vaccination at school 
  • "At risk" children will be contacted by the Edinburgh Vaccination Team to arrange an appointment

As soon as we have more information, we will post it on the website and the NHS Inform website will be updated regularly.  Please don't contact the practice as we have no more information to give at present.  

Home Visits

Doctor's bagWhilst 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 need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. A 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. The receptionist will ask for a few brief details to assist the doctor in determining the urgency of the call and your co-operation with this is appreciated. Due to other commitments, we cannot always guarantee that a particular doctor will visit.

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.
