Welcome to Feddinch Medical Practice. Our practice is located within the Community Hospital on Largo Road. See the map. With more than 9,000 patients, it is one of three serving the St Andrews community.
Feddinch & Strathcairn Medical Practices are merging to form PIPELAND MEDICAL PRACTICE on 1st April 2016. Click here for more info.
Repeat Prescribing now via Online Patient Services
If you normally request repeats on the website form you will need to sign up to Online Patient Services which gives access to your specific repeat list and has now replaced the previous system. You should receive an email with registration details within a few days of your request for access (certainly no more than 5 working days but often sooner).
Online Access to Appointments and Repeat Prescriptions
We are now offering all routine doctor appointments on-line. Once you have signed up to the online service simply click on appointments to see if there is something that suits.
PLEASE NOTE YOU CANNOT REGISTER ONLINE UNTIL YOU ARE REGISTERED WITH THE PRACTICE
You could also request your repeat prescriptions online.
Once you have registered and been supplied with a user id and chosen your own password you will need to keep this information safe as the Practice will not have access to it.
Also available as an App for your phone or tablet! Search for Patient Access
Christmas and New Year Holidays

6pm on Thursday 24th December 2015 until 8am on Tuesday 29th December 2015
6pm on Thursday 31st December 2015 until 8am on Tuesday 5th January 2016
Reminder – If your prescription is due to run out over the above period please re-order two or three days early. Please also bear with us when we do re-open as there will be a backlog of prescription requests to deal with but these will be processed as quickly as possible.
If you need medical advice please contact NHS24 (111).
2015 Flu Vaccine Campaign
Its that time of year again! Anyone over the age of 65 (by end of March 2016) is eligible for a flu vaccination from the NHS. In Feddinch we are running the Saturday morning clinics again. These will be on the following dates/times
Saturday 24/10/15 9.00-11.30
Saturday 31/10/15 9.00-11.30
Saturday 7/11/15 9.00-11.30
No need to make appointments. It tends to be busier at the beginning, but waits are not usually more than 5 minutes. If you have received a letter offering you a shingles vaccine, then please bring this along and make the staff aware, as they can then direct you to the appropriate person.
