Accessing the Services

All consultations are by appointment only. Generally the morning surgery times are from 9.00am to 11.00am but some doctors offer earlier appointments from 7.30am. Afternoon surgeries are between 2.00pm and 6.00pm and some doctors offer later appointments between 6.00pm and 7.00pm. 

T
he telephone number for GP appointments is 01506 882 882.

Nurses appointments (e.g. for blood tests, dressings, etc) are made by telephoning the community receptionist on 01506 880 582.

Demand for appointments is always high and if you are unable to keep an appointment please let us know so that it can be offered to someone else.


Outside of normal surgery hours, emergency cover is provided by NHS24 on 111. If you need to see a doctor the adviser will arrange an appointment with Lothian Unscheduled Care Service (LUCS).

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
 
In a genuine emergency you should call 
999.
