How to Access EAP Services
We aim to offer our services to anyone who is experiencing difficulty in accessing Primary Healthcare, whose accommodation arrangements are uncertain and who may have additional support needs.
If you would like to use any of our services please call in at either of our surgery premises at 17 Leith Street or 22-24 Spittal Street or telephone 0131 240 2810.
Doctor: If you would like to see a doctor you will be asked, on your first visit, to complete registration forms and given a booked appointment to see one of our nurses for a New Patient Health Assessment. You can then attend any GP clinic to see a doctor - please see GP timetable for all clinic time information.
Once registered, you do not need an appointment to see a doctor or a nurse – just turn up at the start of any surgery.
Come early, as surgeries tend to fill up quickly. If you require follow-up you may be given an appointment. Please come on time, otherwise your slot may be given to someone else.
If you are an agency worker supporting a client whom you feel meets EAP criteria and would benefit from registering with us, please call 0131 240 2810. We may in this instance be able to offer a booked appointment for the patient to attend, provided you are available to accompany them to the practice.
