About us

Welcome to The Edinburgh Clinic

The Edinburgh Clinic, now part of Nuffield Health, was set up in 2008 and offers fast access to outpatient appointments, diagnostic services and day surgery. We are located close to the heart of Scotland’s capital and within easy reach of the city centre.

Our aim is to provide first-class independent healthcare for the local community. Patients have described The Edinburgh Clinic as ‘the hospital that feels like home’. The clinic is situated in a beautiful Victorian building, which was once a grand family house. We have kept the stunning architecture and welcoming atmosphere but installed the latest medical equipment.

We welcome patients who have private medical insurance or choose to pay for their own treatment. The Edinburgh Clinic also provides some specialist services to NHS patients.

At The Edinburgh Clinic, we have exceptional levels of patient satisfaction. We have received numerous awards and accreditations for the quality of our healthcare. One of our patients recently commented:

‘From the moment I stepped through the door, all the staff could not have been more helpful or kinder. The theatre staff were so understanding and talked to me in such a wonderful manner that I felt more relaxed than I could ever have imagined. The anesthetist was first-class. I would without doubt highly recommend this clinic.’
