Our policy is to register all family members and forms should be completed for

each family member.You can also download a copy of our Practice Leaflet

for more general information about the Practice.


A consultation at Danderhall is by appointment only.  Appointments can be made either in person or by telephoning  0131 654 1079.  Single appointments are

for 10 minutes but if you feel you have a lot to discuss with the doctor, please book a double appointment.  This helps to keep the doctors’ surgery list running on time.

Between 8am and 8.30am we only handle emergency calls - this does not include booking urgent or routine appointments

You can book an appointment in a variety of ways:


You should allow at least 1 week before telephoning for your result.  Please ring us after 11am and be aware that for certain results, we may ask for further information in order to protect patient confidentiality. *Reception staff may only give results which have been reviewed and commented on by a doctor.

Cervical Smear results will be sent to you directly from the laboratory and NOT from the Practice.


Please try to come to the Practice if you are able to as it is easier for the doctors to examine patients at the surgery with all medical equipment to hand.

If you are unable to attend the surgery, a doctor will visit you at home.  Please call us on 0131 654 1079 before 11am to arrange this.

If you need to see a nurse and you are house-bound, then either a District nurse or the Practice nurse may visit.  Please call us to arrange this


When the surgery is closed, please telephone NHS24 on 111 or check their website www.nhs24.com
