Welcome to Eastfield Medical Practice
We are a friendly 4-partner practice based in the Ladywood district of Penicuik. We aim to provide evidence based medical care in a friendly, holistic manner.
We treat all our patients with respect and fairness. Our preferred style is that of the traditional GP practice where the doctors know their patients well. We tend to dress in a relaxed and casual manner, which we hope, makes us more approachable while still maintaining the highest standards of medical practice and efficiency. We hope you will find our consulting style honest, direct and straightforward.
There are increasing demands on our time from paperwork and organisational problems as well as medical care so we are unable to fulfil all the roles that other professionals also do – such as social worker, benefits adviser and paramedical specialists. However we would expect to refer you on to the appropriate professional when necessary.
In registering with this practice, we regard our relationship as a contract whereby we endeavour to provide you with optimum medical care in an efficient and considerate manner. We expect that you, in turn, will help us to do this by using our service appropriately.
The building is fully compliant with disability access requirements. It is fitted with electronic doors that are operated manually, has ramp access and the consulting rooms are all located on the ground floor. We have several disabled car parking spaces adjacent to the start of the path to the main building. You don’t need a disabled badge to use these if you are unwell but please use them only if you genuinely need to.
