Our Practice and Treatment Room Nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with issues such as family planning and healthy living advice, as well as carrying out blood pressure checks, dressings, cervical smears and blood tests. The Practice Nurse also carries out routine reviews of all our patients with long-term health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease etc. If you have asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and you feel that your symptoms could be better controlled than at present, please do not hesitate to book in with the Nurse for further advice in the first instance.

Our Receptionists provide an important link with the practice and are your initial contact point for all general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results, and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query.
District Nurses provide a wide range of general nursing services to patients who are housebound due to temporary or permanent medical conditions. You may be referred to the service by your GP, your hospital team, or you may indeed refer yourself directly if you think that there is something that they can help with. Our District Nurses work collectively from Leith Community Treatment Centre and they can be contacted directly on 0131 536 6206.
