The surgery at 322 Gilmerton Road was founded in 1952 and served mainly the Moredun, Liberton and Gilmerton districts of the city. The house was extended considerably in 1962 and again in 1990 to provide an increasing range of services to our patients.

The Appointment System

All consultations are by appointment. Our Nurse Practitioners consult daily and can both diagnose and prescribe. They confer with the duty doctor if they feel it is appropriate.

Repeat Prescriptions

These can be ordered in a variety of ways:
- Telephone - 664 8999
- Email - through the Practice web site
- Fax - 664 8303 (please note that the fax is not secure)
- The tear off re-order form which was attached to the previous prescription
- Writing a note, providing details of name, address, date of birth, contact number and what medication you require.

The local pharmacies have a collection/delivery service to the patient. You can request your prescription to be sent to a local pharmacy instead of collecting at the Surgery. You may also hand your repeat request into your local pharmacy and they will deliver it to us for processing, but remember to give yourself a bit of extra time for this. You should be aware that local pharmacies may charge for requesting an emergency supply to tide you over. Please allow two working days for your prescription to be processed. If you wish to check whether your prescription has been processed and have asked for it to go to a local pharmacy, please phone the pharmacy to check. Only if it has not reached the chemist should you phone the Surgery.

You may see any doctor. Please give as much notice as possible when phoning. Please be willing to accept an appointment with a different doctor if spaces are unfilled. If you find that you cannot attend, let us know, and the appointment can then be given to someone else. Urgent appointments are available the same morning with one of our nurse practitioners if you phone at 8:00am or as soon as possible thereafter. Similarly, afternoon appointments are all allocated to patients phoning after 11.30am.
