Welcome to Blackhall Medical Centre

With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

The GP partners at Blackhall Medical Centre reserve the right to suggest that any prescription that is recommended by a private practitioner may have to be issued as a private prescription. The usual scenario for this  is either that the particular medicine is not on the approved NHS Lothian Formulary or a medicine is being prescribed for a condition that it is not licensed for according  to the British National Formulary.

Each prescription requested from a private practitioner will need to be discussed with all the GPs on a case by case basis and this decision may take up to 5 working days.

If a prescription is required urgently it will need to be sought from the private practitioner who recommended it.
