GP founds first new Scottish practice for 10 years

Dr Ed Russell-Smith (pictured) has started work at the first entirely new GP practice in Scotland for a decade.

The singlehanded practice has been set up in Livingston, West Lothian, because of a rapidly expanding population in the town ­ a hub for the biotechnology, micro electronics and call centre industries.

'I felt it was a wonderful opportunity to build a practice from the foundation up,' Dr Russell-Smith said.

'I get a new building and new staff.'

The surgery is the first new GP practice in Lothian for 25 years.
