Community treatment & care team

The community treatment & care team, based next door to Riverside Medical Practice in the Musselburgh Primary Care Centre, can provide a range of care to you and your family. If they think we need to know about any care or treatment they give you, they let us know.

Appointments available: Monday-Friday 8am-5pm
Phone line open: Monday-Friday 8.30am-12pm & 1.30-4.30pm.

You can call them direct on 0131 446 4227 for the following services, rather than come through our busy main phone line.

  • Wound care – all wounds, including post operative wounds, chronic wounds and leg ulcer management. The exception to this is minor injuries: please contact the Minor Injuries Unit for these
  • Taking out sutures and staples
  • Some secondary care phlebotomy (blood tests you’ve been told to get by a health professional in a hospital)
  • Doppler assessment
  • Vitamin B12 injections
  • Certain types of vaccinations
