Our telephone number is 0131 441 3119
All our appointments are face-to-face unless a telephone call is specifically asked for and definitely won’t require to be seen face-to-face. There will be a number of pre-bookable appointments which will be bookable up to 5 weeks in advance whilst also holding back a appointments to deal with patients whose symptoms require to be assessed by a GP urgently that day. Please call the Practice to book any routine appointments after 10am. We would ask for urgent on the day problems that you call at 8am as we cannot guarantee that once the urgent on the day GPs slots are full that you will be seen that day and may be asked to call the following morning. Our trained Reception Staff will still ask the nature of your problem in order that they can triage you to the correct Health Professional as not all health problems need seen by a GP. I would also remind you that you are still required to wear a mask in the healthcare settings and adhere to social distancing so please arrive as close to your appointment time as possible to avoid overcrowding in the waiting area.
If your query is non urgent, please avoid calling on Mondays and call after 10am Tuesday-Friday.
Please do not call to check if your prescription is ready before 2pm and if you use a regular pharmacy, please check with them first.
Please call for test results after 11am.
