Seasonal Flu Vaccination

The winter vaccination programme has started. If you are eligible for a free flu vaccine, you will get a letter from NHS Scotland. This will either give you an appointment date and time at one of the flu vaccination clinics in Lothian, or instruct you to make an appointment using an online portal.

If you are eligible for a COVID booster, you may get this at the same time as your flu jab, but this is not guaranteed, and you may have to attend two separate appointments.

You will not get your flu or COVID jabs at your GP practice. Please do not contact the surgery about your flu or COVID jab appointments.

If you have received a letter with an appointment that you are unable to attend, you can rearrange your appointment online here.  Alternatively you can call the vaccination helpline on 0800 030 8013 for assistance with re-booking.

If you are housebound, your jabs will be given to you by the housebound team, and they will be in touch to arrange this.

Repeat Prescriptions

pill_bottleRepeat Prescriptions are those drugs that appear on the list of medicines on the right hand side of your prescription. Repeat prescriptions can be ordered by ticking items required on this re-order form.

You can order your prescription in the following ways:

  • In Person - hand in form to reception with items clearly marked.
  • Post - send form to us enclosing a stamped addressed envelope for reply.
  • Telephone - call our dedicated Repeat Prescription Line on 0131 336 0022 between 11:00 - 12:00 on any working day.
  • Online - via the link at the top of this page
  • Local Pharmacy - many local pharmacies offer a prescription ordering service for customers.  Speak to your local pharmacy to see if they are able to order and collect your regular prescription for you.

Please do not use the online form if the medicine you require is not on your repeat prescription. Please contact reception to arrange a telephone appointment with a GP to request the item.


Chemist Collection Service

A number of local chemists offer an ordering and/or collection service for the completed prescriptions. Please inform the local pharmacy and the surgery receptionist if you wish to use this.
