Welcome to our website


The Practice consists of our GP consulting rooms, Practice Nurse clinic and treatment rooms. In addition there are also facilities for other visiting specialists. 


All GP, Practice Nurse and Healthcare Assistant surgeries run on an appointment system, although provision will always be made for serious emergencies.


Emergencies will always be seen where the doctor considers this is required on medical grounds.



Closed for Protected Learning Time - Wednesday 26th April 2017  



All East Lothian GP Practices will be closed from 13:00 on Wed 26th April 2017 for Protected Learning Time (PLT).  We will re-open at 08:00 on Thur 27th April.  If you require medical advice during this period of closure, please contact NHS 24 by dialling 111.  In the event of a life threatening emergency, please call 999 



Change to Practice Telephone System


As you are all aware we are in the process of a full building refurbishment of the surgery. In addition to all these major changes in the practice we have also had a new telephone system installed.


We now only have one contact number for the surgery which is 01875 810736 and this operates from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. This number rings through to 2 reception desk phones. We would like to make you all aware that when you dial in and the phone rings for a long period of time that we are not ignoring the call but we are currently on the call in front of you. Unfortunately we are unable to get a message added to the system to let you know that you are in a queue but please be assured we will answer your call as soon as possible.


We can only apologise for this and we hope that you understand how busy the phones and reception can be especially when the surgery opens at 8am.




Extended hours within the Practice


Normal Practice opening hours are from 08.00 through to 18.00 but we also offer some early morning and late evening entended hours clinics. These are for patients who are working and require appointments outwith the normal working day.



Please contact reception for more information about this service and details of the next available clinic.




Patients are free to consult any available doctor. However, if you wish to see a particular doctor you may need to wait a little longer for an appointment.
