Welcome to West End Medical Practice
Repeat Prescription Ordering?
The practice advises our patients to order your prescriptions at the earliest time possible. NO prescriptions can be ordered over the telephone, as the practice needs a complete paper trail for patient safety and auditing purposes
Have You Run Out of Medications?
If you have run out of your medications please contact your pharmacist in the first instance. Your pharmacy can issue most medications on an emergency basis. After that please make a request for your medications from the Practice website.
Online repeat Prescriptions
Due to increased Covid 19 demands on the surgery and the local pharmacies the method or ordering repeat prescriptions will be enhanced.

Our patients are able to order repeat prescription items online. These items are listed on the right hand side of your repeat prescription computer slip.
Agree to the Practice Contacting you by Email
The Practice is considering new ways of contacting patients in order to decrease reliance on paper-based systems. To this end we would like to start collecting accurate email addresses for patients so that we may correspond in that way. We would like to make patients aware however that anything we send from the Lothian Network to a web-based address is no longer considered strictly secure. The sort of correspondence we would use email for would be routine recall letters and not sensitive health information, unless with the explicit consent of the patient.
If you would like to provide us with consent to contact you via email, please complete the consent form.
