Edinburgh Homeless Practice
Written by a patient

They are a cold lot, treatment is ok i guess, actually feeling like your talking to a friend is not going to happen here, since it is a homeless practice they automatically do not trust people. Records are scrutinised before handing out scripts for any medicines, and the words "You could see a different doctor - i just don't feel comfortable prescribing you more than 4 days at a time"
And of course, they all do cover for each other, they will say because i was not given the meds i needed is fine by them, and that you can go register at another practice if you don't like it. Typical "Us and Them" attitude.
Treatment was ok, i do wish once i get something that works that these doctors would leave it alone then, and not keep messing about with the medicine or doses.
One doctor, a female called Hawkins i found plain rude, but i did not complain, i simply thanked her and walked out, the fact she was treating me like a drug addict too did not help matters. Use this practice only when you have no other is my opinion.
