Your Community, Your Practice.

Newbattle Medical Group operates across two sites located in Mayfield and Danderhall. Our main building in Mayfield was purpose built in 2004 and continues to serve us well. In 2023 we were delighted to add Danderhall Medical practice to the group.

We have a large population of over 18,000 patients. This is matched by our large number of GPs, offering one of the highest doctor to patient ratios in Lothian. All our doctors and nursing staff undergo annual appraisal. We are proud to be a training practice for medical students, junior doctors and future GPs.

The local area was historically a mining community and is now home to the National Mining Museum of Scotland. The main source of local employment is now light industry and many of the working population commuting to Edinburgh. The development of the Borders railway has improved the local transportation links to Edinburgh and the area continues to benefit from regeneration

The Practices & On-Site Facilities

Newbattle Medical Group recently became a three practice surgery. Our main Newbattle site has been running since 2004 and was joined by the opening of the brand new Newtongrange site. In August of 2023 we were delighted to have added the Danderhall Medical Practice to our group.

Our Practice
Appointment System

Offering convenient, fast, quality access

We offer an eConsult service to allow patients to contact us 24/7, rather than waiting on the end of a phone. This frees up phone lines considerably for those that do not have internet access. You can also submit an eConsult on behalf of a friend or loved one with their consent. We deal with on average over 1500 eConsults per week, the vast majority (over 95%) getting a same day response.


Very friendly and helpful reception staff. I was a bit nervous because it was my first time in the building. The doctor was very attentive to my needs and must say the experience was a positive one for me. Well done to everyone

Practice Patient

Have always found staff helpful and the doctors and nurses very good. Getting an appointment has sometimes meant a lot of repeated calling, and I have not always got through, but no wonder it's stretched with all the new housing in the area.

Practice Patient

I have found all the staff very pleasant and helpful. I realise how busy they all are and I try not to bother them unless it is absolutely necessary, hence leaving a space for someone who is more ill than me. In my experience the doctors always phone back very promptly. I was seen today by a very efficient caring doctor Fairley. Keep up the good work.!!
