Noticeboard

As many of you already know Dr Findlay is going to have a baby soon. She finishes here for her maternity leave at the end of June and will return in a year. Filling her shoes for that time we are delighted to welcome back Dr Michelle Devin. Everyone here at the surgery would like to wish Dr Findlay all the very best for the coming months.

The new Sick Kids hospital is opening on the 9th of July within the grounds of the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

We would like to take a minute to inform you all that our lovely Practice Nurse, Beth Stewart will be leaving us for pastures new at the Western General Hospital in April. Although we are sad to say farewell we are delighted for her in her new role. So from the Practice Team and no doubt yourselves as patients we wish her all the very best!

We would also like to inform you all that we will be welcoming our new Business Manager, Martin Duffy in May. Martin has an extensive knowledge in Practice Management and we look forward to having him on board. He will be responsible for all business, financial and contractual obligations for the Practice and we look forward to seeing him shine here at Gullane.
