Noticeboard

Please provide the practice with your most up to date mobile phone number.  We plan to use this to send you appointments reminders and provide you with health information, including sending results by text.   We need your consent to do this.  When you are next at the surgery please advise reception if you are happy for this to take place.  Please note, it is your responsibility to let the practice know if you change any of your contact details.

We are currently a Partnership of 8 Doctors.

At present we also have Associate Doctors as well as training Doctors called Registrars. 

Registrar

The Registrar is in the final year of a ten year training programme, gaining supervised experience in general practice.  With your consent, the Registrar may record your consultation for teaching, training or assessment purposes.

Locums

At times of high workload, holiday or sickness Locum Doctors may be employed to assist the Practice.  They are fully qualified general practitioners who wish more flexibility in their working hours.  Checks are carried out in keeping with current recommendations from the GMC.

Medical Students

The Practice is committed to teaching medical students.  We teach second and final year University of Edinburgh students.  

The final year student may be present when the Doctor is consulting.  You may be offered an appointment with the student with a Doctor in attendance, or you may be asked to see the student before seeing the Doctor with whom you booked the appointment.  Occasionally, consultations are recorded for teaching purposes. In all of these circumstances your consent will be sought beforehand and it is perfectly acceptable to decline. 

We are very grateful for patient support in this important venture of assisting the Registrar and students develop their skills.

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, registering new patients, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
