Welcome to the Green Practice

COVID-19 Vaccine:

We now have a small supply of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine in the practice and we will be contacting patients to arrange their first and second dose appointments. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE PRACTICE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT - WE WILL CONTACT YOU!

As per the NHS guidance, we will be arranging appointments for those in the most vulnerable groups FIRST - currently those in the 80+ age group. If you fall into this category but are housebound, please wait to be contacted by the housebound team - we do not yet know when you will be visited.

If you have an appointment booked with us and feel you cannot attend, please cancel on our appointments line on 0131 260 9226 with AS MUCH NOTICE AS POSSIBLE so we can offer the slot to another patient and the vaccine is not wasted! It is CRUCIAL that you attend for your second dose appointment as this needs to be given within a certain timeframe - and is much more difficult to re-arrange!

Please visit the NHS Inform website at nhsinform.scot/covid19vaccine or call 0800 030 8013 for more information regarding the vaccination programme.


Coronavirus (COVID-19)

IN LIGHT OF RECENT DEVELOPMENTS, PLEASE NOTE THE HEALTH CENTRE IS NO LONGER GENERALLY ACCESSIBLE. PATIENTS WILL ONLY BE ADMITTED VIA OUR BUZZER SYSTEM.

The following measures have been implemented in order to best protect patients and staff:

  1. GPs will be offering telephone consultations first and foremost.
  2. Should you feel like you need to be seen in person you will still be triaged by a GP FIRST. It will be at their discretion if you are invited to attend the practice.
  3. Prescriptions will be sent to a preferred pharmacy rather than being left at the practice to collect - please advise us which one if you have not done so already!
  4. Please still contact your local dental practice or optician should you have any urgent concerns. They are the experts and are best equipped to treat you.
  5. Local pharmacies may have amended their hours of operation - please check before heading out to collect medication!

As the NHS guidelines are changing continuously, please be aware these measures may also change. We will do our best to keep you updated!

Do you have any of these symptoms?

  • A new persistent cough
  • Fever
  • Loss of taste or smell

Please SELF-ISOLATE at home for 10 days and DO NOT attend the surgery. Members of the same household should isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms. If they do, they should self-isolate for a further 10 days from the point symptoms appeared. 

PLEASE BOOK A COVID-19 TEST AS SOON AS POSSIBLE - visit the NHS Inform website below or call 0800 028 2816 to request a test.

Should you require a sick note for your employer to cover your self-isolation period, they are available on the NHS Inform website.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, it is not possible for GP practices to run flu clinics at this time. NHS Lothian will be setting up hubs across the city in order to provide the flu vaccine to those who are eligible.

Please check back here - or our social media pages! - for any further catch-up clinic announcements.
