As you may already know, we launched our new text message service on 12th April 2018. We have since sent out two messages as there appears to have been a problem in processing the consents.
To comply with new Data Protection laws which come in to play on 25th May 2018 we must have consent from you in writing. This is an OPT IN SERVICE.
The text message service will be used for sending appointment reminders, invites to clinics (flu, diabetes, asthma, cardiovascular etc), simple questionnaires to update your record, adhoc important messages regarding your care etc.
If you have not already completed a consent form please come in to reception or download a form below and either post it or drop it in to reception where we will update your record.
On 25th May 2018 all patients who have not consented will automatically be excluded from the text service. You will be able to opt in but we won't send you any texts unti you have informed us of your consent.
Please also note that the texts which come from us will show as a mobile number and not SPRINGWELL MEDICAL CENTRE. All texts will clearly have our phone number and name inside.
Sorry for any confusion caused.................... again!
Following the closure of the local public toilet facility the patient toilets are being used by non-patients in an inappropriate and undesirable manner and putting safety of patients and staff at risk. We have been unable to prevent this and unfortunately (and after seeking advice) have had to install locks on the toilet doors. Any patient wishing to use the toilet will have to request a key from reception. If you are seeing the GP or nurse and think they may need to test a sample of urine please ask reception for a urine sample pot and try to provide a sample to take in with you. This will be much appreciated and will save time. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Welcome to Springwell Medical Centre's website!
We have taken a lot of time gathering all information and making this website as user friendly as possible. We would be very grateful if you could spend a little time to check out all areas. If there is anything you would like to see or any questions we have not answered then please drop us some feedback.
Any important changes, updates or seasonal information we need to highlight to you will be on this page. The red ticker bar accross the top of the screen will show how many people did not attend their appointment last month either by not giving us enough notice to be able to give the appointment out to another patient or not notifying us at all.
We are an established family practice situated in the Gorgie/Dalry are of the City of Edinburgh. Our team of friendly staff provide a wide range of medical services and our aim is to provide a consistently high quality of services for our patients. We are currently accepting new patients on to our list although we have two restrictions..
