New Patient Checks

All patients between the ages of 5 and 75, who are new to the practice, can request a registration check, which is provided by our practice nurses.

Cervical Smears

It is important that all women aged 20-60 who are eligible for smears present for this examination as regular smears do detect cervical cancer. A letter will be sent to you directly from Lothian Health Board when your smear is due. Once you receive this please make an appointment with our practice.
