Welcome to the Almond Group Practice

All of our services are described from the front page of our website however here is a summary of the important points!

The Practice has two branches, Kirkliston and Winchburgh.  Patients may be seen at either branch. This economy of scale means we are able to offer you more appointments and a greater breadth of services.


The Practice is open from 08.00 – 18.00 Monday – Friday with some telephone appointments available from 07.30 and up to 18.30.  The practice closes every Wednesday and Thursday between 13.00 – 14.00 for staff training

Please explore the links below to find out about our practice staff, appointments, prescriptions and policies.


The practice has an eReview system for some medication and conditions. The eReviews as sent as a text link to your phone and enables you to tell us how you are getting on without you having to book an appointment and come and see us. It is convenient for you and it helps the practice save appointments for more serious or urgent problems. Please help us offer the most appointments we can by completing our eReviews. If you do not want to then please simply phone the practice and book and appointment as usual instead.
