We are an established practice consisting of three partners - Dr Liz Allen, Dr Alison Thomson and Dr Ronnie Ip. We work together in the practice with Dr Zareen Hossain-Ibrahim, Dr Kate Macdonald, general practice specialist trainees and foundation doctors. In our practice team are the manager, Fiona Robertson, the practice nurse, Katrina Fletcher, 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.
On this website you will find all the important information about our practice and services offered. There are some practical tips and links to useful resources. We would welcome any feedback or suggestions for website content.
We wish to inform patients that Dr Alison Thomson will be retiring from the practice on Friday 16th August 2019. The other GPs in the practice will be very happy to see patients by appointment.
****Unfortunately we have taken the decision to withdraw our travel advice service***. Please see the travel clinic page for an update.
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
