Noticeboard

As of the 5th April 2018 , South Queensferry's Practice Boundary will no longer take in the town of Kirkliston.

Existing patients living in Kirkliston will still remain registered but any new patients are asked to register with Kirkliston Medical Practice.

Any change of address which is outside our boundary will result in the patient being notified to register at a practice within their area. We will continue to care for patients outside our boundary in Kirkliston as long as they remain at the address they were registered at before the boundary change took place.


 

We now have a Facebook page!
