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
