Staff Training (PLT)

We are closed every Wednesday between 12.30 -2pm for staff training. We are also closed all afternoon on Wednesday 5th September 2018 for staff training. For medical advice during this period of closure, please contact NHS 24 on 111, the new free number for NHS 24.  In the event of a life threatening emergency, please call 999. 

 

Due to ongoing GP recruitment difficulties throughout Lothian and GP annual leave, over the months of July and August we will be offering a “same day” service only. 

There will be no pre bookable appointments available. 

At this difficult time for the practice, we would be grateful for your understanding and patience when requesting appointments, results and medication.

PRACTICE LIST

 

 

With effect from the 6th February 2017, until further notice, our practice list is Restricted for new patients.

 

This has come about as a result of a combination of factors including an increased list size and increased workload. We have come to the decision to restrict our practice list in order to provide safe, quality and accessable care to our existing patients.

 

Currently, six out of twelve General Practices across Midlothian have restricted their practice list due to shortage of doctors and rising demand.

 

We will be operating on a “restricted, but open” basis, this means that for the time being we will only register certain categories of patients as follows:

 

New babies of existing patients.

 

Immediate family members of existing patients who become resident within the registered patients address.

 

Temporary residents.

 

Assignments/ allocations

 

Therefore in order to register with a practice in your area, you will be required to call practitioner services on the number below where they will allocate you to a practice by letter. This is to ensure a fair allocation of new patients across all practices in the area.

 

Please bring the letter from the Health Board with you when you attend your allocated practice for the registration forms.

 

Patient telephone number to be allocated a practice – 0345 300 1024 – option 4

  

No patient moving in to the area will be left without a GP

 

 

Commuter appointments - we offer a limited number of early morning & Saturday morning appointments on a monthly basis. Please telephone the surgery to enquire about the availability of these pre-bookable appointments.

The next Saturday clinic is on Saturday 7th July 2018 - this is a prebookable clinic, therefore please telephone the practice in advance for an appointment.

If you have been discharged from hospital and would like to discuss any changes in medication, please make a routine telephone appointment with any of our GP's

The surgery will be closed on the following dates in 2018/19 - Monday 17th September 2018, Tuesday 25th December & Wednesday 26th December 2018, Tuesday 1st January & Wednesday 2nd January 2019. For medical advice during this period of closure, please contact NHS 24 on the FREE NUMBER 111 .  In the event of a life threatening emergency, please call 999.
