Welcome to The Burnside Surgery

We are committed to achieving equality for all by reducing discrimination in employment and service delivery on the grounds of age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, and sexual orientation. Furthermore, we will also strive to ensure that people are not discriminated against due to their socio economic background.



If you are yet to receive your COVID vaccine either 1st or 2nd or booster if eligible, please CLICK HERE FOR CLINICS. We update this as soon as we receive confirmation of walk-in clinics.


In line with current Government guidance, patients are STILL required to wear a face covering in ALL healthcare settings after 19th July. We also ask you to continue to socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and all frontline staff will continue to wear PPE.  If you have COVID symptoms, you must get a PCR test and you and your household must isolate until you receive your test result. If the test is positive, you will be advised by the NHS on next steps. Thank you for your co-operation.
