The Practice is continually reviewing the way in which appointments are booked and how patients have contact with their GP.  The Practice is currently using a mixture of face-to-face appointments and telephone triage appointments.  If you are offered a telephone triage appointment a GP will initially discuss your symptoms over the phone and if necessary ask you to attend the practice in person for review.

Please still consider using your local pharmacy or NHS Inform website as your first point of contact. If you do need an appointment please book it by telephone rather than turning up in person. 

Vaccination Change

From April 1st 2022 vaccinations including Flu, shingles, pneumovac and travel will no longer be done in General Practice.  If you are eligible for a Flu, shingles or pneumovac you will be contacted by the Lothian vaccination team at the appropriate time.
