Flu Vaccination Clinics 2020
Due to the restrictions imposed on us by COVID, Edinburgh Practices will not be running flu vaccination clinics at the surgery. Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership have taken over to provide drive through and walk through venues.
The Practice’s allocated Drive-through/Walk-through clinics are now finished however patients can access any Walk-through/Drive-through clinics (preferably in your timeslot) in the remaining part of the programme. Patients should visit
www.nhsinform.scot/flu for more information on dates and locations of sites. For more information please read the leaflet below:

Important Patient Information - Changes to Procedures due to CORONAVIRUS
For routine health advice or for minor ailments
To aid us in minimising the spread of infection we have moved to telephone consultations rather than face-to-face appointments, where possible. Please consider using your local pharmacy or NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scot as your first point of contact.
Local pharmacies provide a minor ailments service which deals with many common conditions.
Please note ALL eye problems should be directed to an optician and not a GP.
Similarly ALL dental problems should be directed to a dentist and not a GP.
If you do need an appointment please book it by telephone rather than turning up in person
- Please only enter the premises if you have an appointment or collecting a prescription
- If attending for an appointment please wear a face covering
- Attend alone if possible
- Arrive on time for appointments (no more than 5mins beforehand)
- Use the hand sanitiser provided upon arrival
- Do not use the toilet facilities unless absolutely necessary
Please maintain social distancing measures when at reception
Your assistance in these areas is greatly appreciated
If you have a fever, cough or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste DO NOT ENTER the Health Centre and you MUST self isolate for 7 days. If you are severely unwell or breathless then you should consult NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scot and phone NHS 24 on 111 as first point of contact.
We are constantly reviewing the way in which we provide our services and thank you for your patience and co-operation during these exceptional circumstances.
The Practice is a non-limited partnership and was founded in 1994 having originally functioned as a branch surgery of Currie Group Practice since 1971. We provide the full range of General Medical Services under the National Health Service as well as other non-NHS services as detailed in this leaflet. The Practice also largely constitutes the University Health Service for Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.
We aim to provide a high quality, caring service to improve the health and wellbeing of all our patients.
The Practice is well serviced by public transport – Lothian Regional buses 25, 34, 35, 45 and First Bus 63.
