Visitor to the Practice

UK Residents

If you are staying within our practice area for a period of less than 3 months and you require medical attention, we are happy to treat you as a 'temporary resident'. This is usually for treatment which cannot wait until you return home.

If you have moved into the practice area and will be staying for more than three months, you will be advised to register fully with the practice. For further information click on the Registration link.

On arrival in our practice area, you discover you have left your regular medication behind or have ran out of some. In the first instance, we would recommend you contact your own practice and ask if they will liaise with a local pharmacy to provide your medication on receipt of a faxed prescription from the practice (NOT controlled drugs).

This will keep an accurate compliance record of your medication use and negate the need to see another GP.

If, however, your own practice are not happy to do this, please ask for an appointment with the GP, ideally bringing a note of what medication you take.

For further information, or to make an appointment, please contact the practice on:

0131 260 9226

Advise reception of your temporary status and home address. You will be asked to bring along some photo ID - either your passport or UK driving licence.

Overseas Visitors

Visitors from out-with the UK, and staying within the practice area, can be eligible for free NHS treatment subject to meeting set criteria.

Visitors (i.e. people intending to stay for less than 90 days) from another EEA country are eligible for NHS treatment on production of a valid EHIC card. If an EHIC card is not available, we will not be able to see you. You will need to seek medical attention from a private GP clinic which will incur a fee.

Visitors from out-with the EEA will be classed as 'private patients' and unfortunately we do not have the capacity to see private patients at the practice - regardless of citizenship. If you fall under this category, you will need to seek medical attention from a private GP clinic which will incur a fee.

For further information, or to make an appointment, please contact the practice on:

0131 260 9226

Advise the receptionist of your status, if you have a valid EHIC card.

Alternative to seeing a GP

The local pharmacies offer a Minor Ailments Scheme which entails a consultation with a pharmacist who can prescribe within their remit. This includes treatment for common ailments like impetigo and urinary tract infections (if appropriate). Ultimately, they may advise seeing a GP as the better option.

The Minor Injuries clinic at the Western General Hospital is available if you have had a minor accident or injury. It is an open-access and nurse-led clinic and is available 7 days a week, between the hours of 8am-9pm (last patient admitted at 8.30pm). For further information click on link.

The Accident & Emergency Department at Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and is the busiest emergency department in Scotland, seeing an average of 300 patients a day. Children under the age of 13 should attend the Royal Hospital for Sick Children. On arrival in the emergency department, you will be directed to the appropriate area using a triage system, whereby you will be assessed by a member of staff and priority given to urgent cases.
