Due to the corona virus outbreak access to our services has changed

As of Monday 13th July 2020

Emergency Surgery - This will be a telephone surgery as we cannot have a large number of people in the waiting room at the same time.  Please call between 8am and 9am Monday to Friday to book into the emergency surgery and the Doctor will call you back that morning

Routine Appointments - These are mostly still being done by telephone. You can book a telephone appointment online or by calling the surgery.

Face 2 Face Appointments - If the Doctor who calls you feels you need to be seen face to face, they will arrange a suitable time for you to come into the surgery.  This will normally be within two to three working days

Contraception Services - IUD/IUS fittings will resume.  Please book a telephone consultation to discuss your requirements before a fitting can be arranged if this is your first fitting

Implants - Please book a telephone consultation to discuss with Dr Singleton

The front door is now closed and we are only seeing patients who have first been assessed by a member of our team over the phone.

THE WEARING OF FACE COVERINGS OR MASKS 

If you have been asked to attend the surgery for an appointment, we would be grateful if you could wear a face covering or mask.

This is important because social distancing 2m is not possible if we have to examine you, take blood or complete a treatment or dressing.

Our staff wear a mask to protect you and you can help protect us and other patients in the waiting room by wearing a face covering or mask

We thank you for your co operation.

Welcome to Leith Surgery

“We aim to provide quality medical care, to meet the needs of our patients.”

With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

Our patient care advisors (Receptionists) are now asking all of our patients for a brief description of why they are requesting an appointment. This is so you can be directed to the most appropriate care provider more efficiently. This information will help us to help you.
