Exit from European Union
GP practices have received word from The Chief Pharmaceutical Officer for The Scottish Government stating the essential points if the UK exits from the EU without an agreement about the terms of withdrawal:
- The Scottish Government is working with all other UK Administrations to make sure that patients receive the medicines and other medical supplies they need, as far as is possible, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
- Pharmaceutical companies have stockpiled medicines and across the UK the NHS has stockpiled other supplies like medical devices and clinical consumables.
- Arrangements are also being made to transport into the UK, including by air, items that cannot be stockpiled.
- Patients, GPs, community pharmacies and hospitals should not stockpile.
- Shortages may occur, but the NHS will manage the situation and if necessary provide suitable alternatives or other treatment while supply is restored to normal levels.
- Patients do not need to do anything new.
Morningside Medical Practice are now operating a restricted list. If you require to register, this can be done on a Monday - Friday. Unfortunately we are only able register a limited amount of patients per week until further notice. The decision was taken so this would allow the doctors to continue providing high quality and safe care to our patients. Thank you for your continued support and patience.

New appointment option
We always try to improve patient access options.

We have therefore introduced a soon '3 day release' appointment. Click here for more information.
