|Dr Patricia Donald, MBE|
1978 MBChB DRCOG FRCGP FRCP (Edin)
I qualified in Medicine in Edinburgh in 1977 and after completing my training for general practice I joined the practice in 1981.At that time it was the Leith and Cramond Medical Practice working from the 2 sites until 2006. I am the 4th generation of Dr Donalds within the practice, which started in 1880 in Leith Mount, my great grandfather's house. Now we have a partnership in Cramond with purpose built premises. I have a particular interest in women’s health, coronary heart disease and mental health, but have always enjoyed the traditional role of the family doctor. I have been involved with the RCGP and RCPE in areas of clinical effectiveness and evidence based medicine in Scotland (SIGN). I now work part time with the Lothian Health Board and Scottish Government in looking at new and innovative ways of developing general practice to influence how Scottish general practice should evolve to meet the needs of local populations. I have reduced my clinical commitments at Cramond to 2 days a week.
|Dr Gillian Price|
I qualified from Edinburgh in 1987 and completed posts in A&E Medicine, Infectious Diseases, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Community Paediatrics, Psychiatry and Care of the Elderly during my GP training in Fife and the Lothians. I then spent a year working in Australia before settling down to General practice, joining the practice in Cramond in 1997. My main interests are Women's Health and Family Planning and Minor Surgery. I have non-clinical responsibility within the practice for Finance and Coronary Heart Disease monitoring.
|Dr Laura Stevenson|
1992 MBChB DRCOG MRCGP
Having qualified from Edinburgh University in 1992, I worked in various hospital posts covering A&E, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Care of the Elderly, Psychiatry, ENT and Community Paediatrics. I work part-time at Cramond and I particularly enjoy working with children and helping with women’s health problems, as well as the challenge of supporting people with chronic medical conditions. I am the GP trainer at Cramond and supervise the doctors in training who are attached to our practice.

1999 MB BS MRCGP MRCS (Edin 2005)
I graduated in 1999 from Bangalore University and then trained as a General Surgeon. I realised that I loved the role of family doctor and changed fields in 2005, becoming a GP in Worcestershire. I have lived and worked as a GP Partner in Edinburgh for many years after I moved to Scotland to get married. I am a GP Trainer, and enjoy mentoring aspiring doctors as they become fully fledged GPs. I am passionate about Scottish General Practice and look forward to helping shape it for the future. I continue to use my surgical skills in daily practice with minor surgery and musculoskeletal work, like joint injections. I have good experience with elderly care and my paediatric care experience is largely due to having four beautiful children.

2000 MBBS MRCGP DCH DRCOG
I qualified from Dr MGR Medical University (Chennai, India) in 2000 and moved to Britain in 2002, to pursue a career in Psychiatry. I worked in various hospitals in the Lothians and Fife, and I became a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrist in 2006. However, during my Liaison Psychiatry placement at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, I realised that only General Practitioners had the unique opportunity to offer patient-centred, holistic care. I completed my GP training in 2011 and I was a GP Partner in a large practice in Currie until March 2017. The arrival of our first child, a beautiful baby girl, prompted me to look for a position with a better work-life balance and I joined Cramond Surgery in October 2017. My special interests include mental health, cardiology and men's health.
