Introducing the Lothian Eye Network ( posted on Mar 13, 2018 )


For eye problems -  Look no further than your local optometrist


For any eye problem your first port of call should be an optometrist. An optometrist is the best person to assess urgent eye problems, check for eye disorders and treat eye conditions. They have the professional training and necessary equipment to assess most eye problems and will refer you to see a specialist when necessary.


All appointments are NHS funded.


If you already have your own optometrist you should contact them in the first instance as having previous clinical records is very useful.


If you do not already have an optometrist there is a list of those in the local area available at reception and on our website under ‘useful forms / Info Leaflets’. Please contact them and they will arrange to see you. You can also choose to visit any optometrist providing NHS services for treatment.


Please note that when you contact the optometrist of your choice their staff will assess your symptoms and offer you an appropriate appointment. The time you will have to wait will depend on the severity and duration of your symptoms. Emergency problems will be seen quickly. If your problem is urgent and they cannot manage to see you they will find someone who can.


After the appointment they may send you to a local pharmacy or request a prescription from your GP for appropriate medication or, if necessary, refer you to a hospital specialist. A report will be sent to your GP so they have a complete record.

Physiotherapy in Practice ( posted on Jan 29, 2018 )


As part of our commitment to improve our service to patients, we have two Physiotherapists available in the practice.  Mike works Mondays and Wednesdays.


The role of the Physio is to help patients with muscle and bone problems on the first instance and for ongoing treatment.  They can also arrange Sick Lines and Medication if appropriate too.


The addition of a Physiotherapist has proved popular with patients and staff alike and are the first point of call for any ongoing or new muscle and bone problems.  This not only improves our service to patients but also frees up additional appointments with the GP for other illnesses.


Please note that all patients with muscle and bone problems (even ongoing) will be signposted to the Physio as a matter of routine.

The next generation of GPs ( posted on Dec 4, 2017 )

There is a national shortage of GPs and Nurses.  This is one of the reasons why it is so difficult to get an appointment in practices across the country.  As a training practice, we feel passionately about supporting existing and future health professionals by encouraging them into General Practice.


We have several Doctors with us undergoing Specialist Training to become a GP.  They take turns working within the practice and regularly see patients.  Dr Livingstone is our current GP Registrar and is with us until August 2018.  She proved to be very popular and is a welcome addition to the team.    


Medical Students regularly work with us on a monthly placement to provide them experience in General Practice.  I

We also help school leavers who are considering medicine or nursing by providing work experience.  They will be given an overview of all aspects of community care ranging from GP surgeries, Baby Clinics (with our fantastic Health Visitors) and learning about Community Health Promotion.


Please note that patient confidentiality is observed at all times and patient consent is requested at all times.
