When We Are Closed
The Edinburgh Access Practice is closed overnight from 5pm-9am Mon - Frid, and closed for lunch 12.45 - 1.45pm daily.
In addition, we are closed the fourth Wednesday of every month until 1.45pm for staff training AND every Wednesday 9am to 10am.
EAP is also closed every weekend and all Scottish Public Holidays. (see 'Noticeboard' tab for dates)
NHS24 is available to everyone in Scotland for health advice 24 hours a day throughout the year. When the practice is closed, you can access Out-of-Hours advice and treatment from NHS24.
If you telephone outwith practice opening times, you will hear a message giving the number for this service which is 111. You can also access NHS24 by logging on to the website at www.nhs24.co.uk.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
