Morningside Medical Practice is a GP Registrar training practice. GP Registrars are fully qualified medical doctor, have worked in Edinburgh Hospitals for over four years and they aspire to become a General Practitioner.
GP Registrars will be working with us between six to twelve months during their training before hopefully becoming an independent general practitioner.
They will initially be sitting in with other clinicians to learn consultation styles, and then consulting independently but will always be supervised, mentored, and debriefed by a GP.
We endeavor to let you know that you will be consulting a GP Registrar at the time of booking your appointment, but please let us know if you do not wish to consult a Registrar. Your care is paramount, and your choice will not affect your management.
With your consent, the Registrar may sometimes record your consultation for teaching, training, and assessment purposes, and we will ask permission if this is the case, but feel free to decline this.
Our practice nurses provide a range of services throughout the week. They perform practical procedures such as injections, wound assessments , blood tests and blood pressure checks. Long term condition reviews are also held throughout the week. Please contact the receptionist for an appointment.
Lead Practice Nurse
Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner
An Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner (APP) now works in your GP practice. They are experts in muscle, bone and joint problems such as back, neck, shoulder or knee pain. These are known as musculoskeletal (MSK) problems. If you are over 16 years and think you have an MSK problem you can book an appointment with them rather than your GP.
The APP will assess you and talk to you about management options. This may include advice on how to manage the problem and exercises for you to work on at home. If further tests, investigations or rehabilitation are needed they can organise this. The APP works very closely with your GP and other colleagues in the practice to ensure best holistic care.
You can ask reception for an appointment with the APP or your GP may suggest this as the best option.
The management team is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The team supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.
Receptionists and Secretaries
Receptionists and Secretaries provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query.
They make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
The team consists of Susan (Secretary), Carole (Receptionist /Summarizer), Kelly (Receptionist), Caroline (Receptionist), Ashley (Receptionist/Secretary), Jacqui (Receptionist), Gill (Receptionist) and Aimee (Receptionist).

Our integrated primary care pharmacy team lead medicines optimisation and deliver a specialist clinical pharmacy service within an agreed standard of pharmaceutical care for the identified patient population, safely, effectively and within their defined limits of responsibility, resources and activity. They provide prescribing and professional advice to medical, nursing and other healthcare staff and contribute to good clinical governance in the use of medicines.
The district nurses can be contacted between Monday to Friday 08:00 – 16:30 by telephone on 0131 446 2360. Outwith these times, please contact NHS24 by telephone on 111.
District Nurses are qualified nurses who have undertaken a specialist qualification in Community Health. They manage a team of qualified and unqualified nurses to deliver nursing care to patients in their homes. The service is provided for people who are housebound and will assess, plan and provide the most appropriate high standard nursing care. It is a 24-hour responsive service that promotes patient independence through teaching and supporting the patient and their carers. They work in partnership with other members of the Health Care Team and local agencies to maximise the opportunity for patients to live at home.
