We would like to thank all the patients who kindly handed in cards and gifts over the festive period. These were very much appreciated. We wish all our patients a happy new year.
Currently, there is a Lothian wide shortage of doctors. As a result the practice continues to struggle to provide the number of doctor sessions required to maintain our normal service.
At this difficult time for the practice, we would be grateful for your understanding and patience when requesting appointments, results and medication.
Dr Cremona, Scales, Archibald, McCormack, Deans & Gotts.
