Pre-Bookable Telephone Consultations

Please phone the practice telephone number and ask to book in with your doctor. All appointments are 10 minutes and for one problem.

Urgent / Emergency Telephone Consultations

Please phone the practice and tell the receptionist that you need to speak to the doctor that day. The receptionist will ask you some questions so that we may prioritise calls appropriately and offer a safe and efficient service. All appointments are 10 minutes and for one problem.

Home Visits

If you require a home visit please contact the practice before 10 am. Home visits are at the doctor’s discretion and only if you are housebound or are deemed too unwell to attend the surgery. Home visits reduce the number of patients we are able to see in the practice and we are unable to offer you same quality of service at home as you would receive were you to attend. You must attend the surgery whenever possible and transport remains the patient’s responsibility. Both Kirkliston and Winchburgh have disabled parking bays and wheelchair access.

Nurse Appointments

The practice nurse deals with minor illnesses, dressings, injections, ear syringing, removal of stitches, cervical smears, contraception, new patient medicals, travel vaccinations and treatment room services. The practice nurse also offers appointments to help you manage certain conditions including diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, COPD, Asthma, and Epilepsy. You will be offered an annual review appointment for most of these conditions.
