    20 reasons to choose YourGP

    20 reasons to choose YourGP

    Posted on August 28th, 2023

    This year marks a significant milestone for YourGP – it is 20 years since we first opened the doors of our practice in Edinburgh’s Dean Village. Since then, our commitment to providing expert healthcare has earned us a reputation as one of Scotland’s leading independent medical practices. To celebrate our 20th year, we’re sharing the top 20 reasons why people from right across Edinburgh and beyond continue to choose YourGP…

    1. Locations

    Situated in Edinburgh’s picturesque Dean Village, YourGP at Waterside House lies on the banks of the peaceful and tranquil Water of Leith, making it the perfect location for anyone who benefits from a little quiet contemplation before or after their appointments. Our brand-new practice at Dundas Street sits in the heart of the capital, making it a convenient choice for anyone who lives or works in the city, or intends to travel to the practice by bus or train.

    2. Short notice appointments

    Many of our patients come to us after experiencing frustration at the amount of time they have to wait for an appointment elsewhere. At YourGP, you will be seen as soon as possible – with same day and next day appointments often available.

    3. Extended appointment

    We offer a no rush approach, and you can tailor your time with the doctor according to your needs. Consultation sessions can last up to 45 minutes, giving you ample opportunity to discuss any health concerns in depth.

    4. Long opening hours

    We’re open on Saturdays and have extended hours on Thursdays, making it even easier for you to arrange an appointment that fits in with your schedule.

    5. Fast turnaround of test results

    We understand that waiting for test results can be an anxious time. That’s why we provide such a fast turnaround of test results.

    6. No need to be registered with us

    Whether you’re a local or a visitor to Edinburgh, you don’t need to be registered at YourGP to book an appointment with one of our GPs.

    7. Wide range of services

    YourGP offers a wide range of services including GP appointments, occupational healthcare and cosmetic treatments, as well as sexual health and gender services.

    8. Our highly skilled team

    All our staff are highly qualified and experienced, and they are friendly and approachable too.

    9. Our patient-centred approach to everything

    We treat every patient as an individual, we listen and we genuinely care.

    10. A friendly environment

    From the warm welcome by the reception team and complementary drinks in the waiting area, to the understanding and non-judgemental approach of our GPs, we aim to be as approachable as possible.

    11. It’s easy to book an appointment

    You can book an appointment at YourGP either by calling 0131 225 5656, emailing, or through our simple online booking system.

    12. Our 20 years of commitment

    For 20 years we have been serving Edinburgh, supporting our patients, watching their families grow, and improving the health of the next generation.

    15. We can carry out minor surgery right here

    Minor skin conditions such as benign cysts, moles, and skin tags, can be treated and removed in the practice by one of our GPs.

    16. We can refer you to a specialist if required

    If there is something that we cannot treat at our practice, we can quickly refer you to a trusted specialist.

    17. Our familiar and reassuring service

    18. Our commitment to educating and raising awareness

    We share information about a range of health issues on our blog, in our monthly newsletter, and on our social media.

    19. We provide local GP services

    We are the go-to choice for many patients in Edinburgh, but people also travel from across Scotland to see our experienced GPs.

    20. We are fully regulated

    Our team and our practices are assessed on a regular basis, and we are fully regulated by Healthcare Improvement Scotland.


    Just a massive thank you for being so willing to help us out. I was kept up to date in all email communication between the two clinics which I found very reassuring. I honestly can not emphasize enough how grateful we both are that the clinic was able to help us out with the Zita West fertility tests. We really did not know what we were going to do after the mix up with the blood collection dates due to the 4th of July in America and really thought we would have to give up on these tests so it means a massive amount to us that we have been able to proceed with them because of your willingness to help us out. Thank you again.
