Message from Dr Allison:

  • I will be leaving Craigmillar Medical Group in mid June as I am moving away from Edinburgh.
  • It has been my huge privilege to work and serve in Craigmillar over the past 21 years.
  • I wish all my patients and colleagues at the medical centre all the very best for the future.

docsteth1Making an Appointment

From January 2018 we have a new way of making appointments for a doctor or advanced nurse practitioner.  This is to free up doctor availability so that we can help more patients each day and make sure we can see ANY patients that need to be seen.

Calll the surgery and speak to one of our receptionists.

The receptionist will ask you some questions about your problem so that all requests for health advice are dealt with quickly and appropriately.  They may suggest you see the pharmacist, dentist, optician or other health care professional if they can deal with your problem better than the doctor. 

They will then book you in for a doctor to call you back on the same day.  Please have your phone number to hand when you ring us.

The doctor or advanced nurse practitioner will aim to phone you back within two hours. Please keep your phone switched on and close by you while waiting for your call.

The doctor may be able to deal with your problem over the phone. If it is agreed that you need to be seen the doctor will arrnage an appointment for you to come down on the same day or on a suitable day for you.

Appointments with a Nurse

The nursing team have an appointment system, but also aim to be flexible and opportunistic in the care they offer, providing a wide range of services to all age groups.

When ringing for an appointment, please let the receptionist know why you are attending as this will enable her to allocate you the appropriate nurse to deal with your problem. 

If you are coming for a blood test you can pop in and see one of the health care assistants who are available each morning between 8.30 am and 12.30 pm.
