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.  

Medical Education & Research

gp_and_bookThis is a training practice and each year we have a fully qualified doctor attached to the practice to gain experience in general practice. We sometimes record consultations on video for teaching purposes, but your permission will always be sought, and you will be free to consult in private if you prefer.

We are also involved in the education of medical students from University of Edinburgh.  These students spend time at the surgery shadowing different members of the team.  If a student is shadowing a doctor or nurse, you will be asked if you are happy for them to be present during your consultation.  If you would prefer for the student not to be present, please let your doctor or nurse know and they can leave the room during your appointment.

The practice is involved from time to time in research studies. Patients' consent would always be sought prior to their involvement.
