In our practice team are the manager, Fiona Robertson, the practice nurse, Michelle Adam, administrative and health care staff and attached staff of pharmacist, district nurses, health visitors, midwife and respiratory nurse. A number of community clincs eg warfarin and listening service also run within the practice.

We are a teaching and training practice and are committed to providing the highest standards of care.

Also within Ancrum Medical Centre is the separate partnership of Drs I&S Arthur, Clarke and Sinclair.

**Dr ME Allen**


Dr Allen will be unavailable for the next few months as she is absent from work.


All other doctors will be happy to see you but unfortunately there will be pressure on the available appointments. We would ask for your patience during this time. Thank you.


Other changes -


Dr Nicola Sammans has now left the practice as she has moved to the Glasgow area.


We will be welcoming Dr Kate MacDonald in November 2018


Dr Brooke returns to the practice as our specialist GP Registrar from August 2018





New Text Service

The practice has recently commenced a new text reminder service. Patients should receive a reminder for their upcoming appointment at the practice.  


Any patients failing to cancel or failing to attend a booked appointment will also receive a message.


We hope this will reduce the number of wasted appointments and further improve availability.


Please update your contact details when you attend the surgery to facilitate the service
