Welcome to Craigmillar Medical Group

We are a modern general practice in the heart of Craigmillar and Niddrie offering a wide range of services to our patients. We are committed to providing high quality holistic care for all our patients and are always looking at new ways to improve our service.

Our practice team consists of doctors, a nurse practitioner, practice nurses, health care assistants, mental health nurses, a physiotherapist, community link worker and care coordinators. We work closely with the extended community team of health visitors, district nurses, and midwives. We are a dedicated teaching and training practice, providing teaching to medical students and trainee GPs.

Our building is also used by other NHS services such as CAMHS and sexual health, as well as a variety of groups from the community including Citizens Advice Bureau and ELCA, bringing care to the centre of the community.

Please note that all calls will be recorded for training and monitoring purposes.

We take patient confidentiality extremely seriously.  Having relationships of trust is fundamental to everything we do for our patients.  We ensure that all our staff are up to date with their training on confidentiality and the NHS Lothian policy on use of social media.  Please be assured that we will always treat the information you share with us with the respect, sensitivity and confidentiality that you deserve.

We hope that the information in this website will help you to make best use of our services and promote your best health and wellbeing.

Please be assured that Craigmillar Medical Group is open for patients.  We have a very high demand at the moment so please bear with us if the phone lines are busy.  We are doing our best to answer your calls as quickly as possible.  We ask that only those who have been told to attend for an appointment or other reason come to the practice. Government guidelines for healthcare settings mean that wearing of a face mask is compulsory in the practice building.  If you feel you are not able to wear a face mask then you will be asked to wait outside until your appointment.

Screening questions:

Please read the questions below before you travel to the practice for any reason. If you answer YES to any questions and you have an appointment booked, you must LET US KNOW by phone in advance and we will try our best to reschedule your appointment.

    • High temperature or fever?
    • New cough?

Flu vaccinations are no longer being given by the practice but instead being done at mass clinics for those who are eligible.  This will be combined with your COVID booster vaccination if it is more than 3 months since your second dose.  First, second and booster COVID vaccine doses are now available by drop in at a variety of places in the city. See NHS Inform for more details and sites.  The Lothian Helpline number for booking or to reschedule your appointment is 0300 790 6296.
