Welcome to the Feddinch Medical Practice website. Our practice is located within the new Community Hospital in Largo Road. With more than 9,000 patients, it is one of three serving the St Andrews community. The website is intended to provide some additional support to our normal service and we hope you find it useful and helpful. Don't know where the Community Hospital is? See the map.
Dr Gillian Milne is now enjoying what we hope will be a long and happy well earned retirement.
Dr Esther Birney will be joining the practice as Partner in October. She is a familiar face to the practice as she completed her training with us a few years ago and has worked as a locum on several occasions.
Dr Ana Dasgupta will be working as a locum with the practice until Dr Birney takes up her post.

Seasonal Flu Injections
You are eligible for a flu injection if you are or will be over 65 years of age by the end of March 2015, or if you have a long-term or chronic illness, or if you are pregnant. We can check your eligibility if you are unsure - unfortunately we are not able to offer the vaccination to anyone outside of these groups.
Last year we carried out a survey asking patients when they would prefer us to carry out the flu clinics and an overwhelming 85% were in favour of us continuing to offer these on three Saturday mornings so that is what we are doing!
The shingles vaccine will also be given to those who fall into the age group. They will be written to and we would ask that they bring along this invitation when attending.
Please note that we are only given the number of vaccines corresponding to the patients in this age group and are not able to vaccinate anyone else.
Incoming call barring on telephones
Will those patients who have telephones which barr incoming calls please note that we are now unable to access a mechanism for returning any requests you give us for return calls. Please advise us at the time of making a request an alternative contact, such as a mobile number.
The practice opens one evening per week from 6.00 to 8.15. Please note that any appointments made for such sessions are intended for those unable to visit the surgery during the day. Note, too, that the session is purely an appointment based facility - i.e., there will be no repeat prescription service. There will be no receptionist on duty so please either use the 'self check in' system or take a seat and wait for the doctor to call your name.
Patients arriving more than 15 minutes late for their appointment will not be seen and should telephone the Practice the next day to make alternative arrangements.
We’re all interested in the ageing effects of time and environment on our skin but did you know that simple treatments can offer a quick route to reducing that impact?

Results of tests such as blood, urine and x-rays are available by telephone from noon to 12.45 pm daily, when one of the practice nurses will take your call. More detailed advice can usually be obtained by making an appointment with the nurse. Between 3.00pm and 5.00pm our reception staff can give out results, but may ask you to phone back later if it is not a satisfactory/normal result. For all results, please call 465635.
