Community Midwives

Telephone 0131 455 9846

The midwives, from the New Royal Infirmary, see patients on a weekly basis at the practice. They liaise with the Simpson Centre for Reproductive Medicine and St John’s Maternity Unit in Livingston. They provide both anti‑natal and post‑natal care. Our ante‑natal clinic is held on a Thursday 13:30-16:00 by appointment only. However, patients are free to consult any doctor in the practice for their ante‑natal care should they wish to do so.

Community Nurses

Telephone 0131 455 9849 

We have a supportive District Nursing Team, all of whom work from our premises. They work in partnership with the GPs, Carers and other agencies to provide individualised total patient care, including assessment, personal care, bowel and bladder management, palliative care, would dressings, removal of stitches, injections and other clinical procedures for patients in their own homes who are unable to attend the surgery. Sister Stirling can also give guidance in the use of complementary therapies. The District Nurses will be available to take your telephone calls between 14:00 - 15:00 or leave a message and they will return your call.
