Noticeboard

Please note - the practice has no information on covid vaccination at present.  We will share information as soon as we have it.

PRACTICE INFORMATION - updates and changes to services    In order to provide flu vaccination programme information on our home page you will now find the updates and changes to practice services in the clinics and services section of our website.  

We are currently a Partnership of 8 Doctors.

At present we also have Associate Doctors (Salaried GP / Retainer) as well as Registrars,  qualified Doctors specialising in training to be a GP. 

Registrar

The Registrar is a qualified doctor and 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.
