GO Health in Edinburgh

Health in Edinburgh Even with the best of intentions sometimes health difficulties occur when you least expect it. Fortunately Edinburgh is well equipped to offer you assistance when you need it.

In an emergency, ambulances can be called by telephoning 999 and emergency treatment is available to anyone who needs it at the New Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh [map]. Located in Little France this is Edinburgh’s main hospital and Accident & Emergency centre since The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh in Lauriston Place closed its doors in 2003.

Emergency dental care is provided by the Edinburgh Dental Institute.

Non-emergency medical treatment, should you need it, is free to citizens of EU countries, and to those citizens whose countries have reciprocal agreements with the United Kingdom. However if you are willing to pay you could try the Edinburgh BUPA private hospital [map] at Murrayfield.

Chemists are able to provide non-prescription drugs and medicines and Boots (Shandwick Place) has extended opening hours, Monday - Saturday 8:00am – 9:00pm and Sunday 10:00am – 5:00pm. Other chemists also have extended opening times.

Family Planning advice can be obtained from the Brook Advisory Clinic (0131 229 3596) in Castle Terrace.

For free confidential advice on sexually transmitted and other diseases you can go to The Genito-Urinary Medicine (GUM) in the Lauriston Building, Lauriston Place. It’s open Monday - Friday 8:30am – 5:00pm, and until 6:30pm on Thursday..
