If you do not have photographic ID, you will need to provide your birth certificate. We also need to see a recent document (dated within last 2 months), such as a Gas or Electricity Bill, council tax letter, rent/mortgage agreement or electoral roll letter,which shows the same address as on the Registration Form. We DO NOT accept mobile telephone bills or bank statements.

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 (You may need to use internet explorer to access this).


A consultation at Danderhall is by appointment only.  

Between 8.00am and 8.30am we only handle emergency calls.  This DOES NOT include urgent medical conditions, please call after 8.30am for all routine appointments and urgent conditions.

We do not operate a ‘Walk In’ system.  

Appointments are 10 minutes but if you feel you have a lot to discuss with the doctor, please ask for a double appointment and inform the receptionist of the reason for this.  

You can book an appointment in a variety of ways:

Many problems can be dealt with better and more quickly by another healthcare professional other than your GP… Click here for details


Please telephone after 11am, at least 1 week after your test.   

*Reception staff may only give results that 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
