On the day: face to face and phone appointments. These can be booked on the day by calling 0131 652 2004 from 8.30am for the morning session and 2.00pm for the afternoon session. For acute issues you may be offered an appointment with an Advanced Nurse Practitioner who is very experienced and trained to deal with a wide range of issues.

Pre-bookable appointments: These pre-bookable appointments are for routine consultations and aim to allow greater continuity to allow you to see your usual GP about recurrent or chronic conditions. There is good evidence that consulting with the same GP about long term conditions is the safest way to practice.

If for some reason you feel you should have been called for a review but have not been, please get in touch with the practice to highlight this to us.
