Newbyres Medical group would like to take this opportunity to wish all our patients and their families a happy and healthy Christmas & New Year
Currently, there is a Lothian wide shortage of doctors. As a result the practice is struggling 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.
