Aug 2022: Up-to-date information on appointments at the Anne Rowling Clinic.

There are no changes in our advice around Coronavirus since our update in April 2022. All research and NHS appointments at the Anne Rowling Clinic continue to be face-to-face.

We will no longer call you before your appointment and we look forward to welcoming you in person at the Clinic. 

If you do not wish to attend in person, please contact our reception team to request a telephone appointment. You can call our reception between 8 am and 12 noon, Monday - Friday on 0131 465 9500

Attending the Clinic

When you enter the Clinic, please continue to wear a face-covering if you are able to and use the alcohol gel in the entrance foyer. Our team are all wearing masks and will do so throughout your appointment.

Do not come to the Clinic if you have coronavirus symptoms, have someone at home with symptoms or have been advised to self-isolate.

The Clinic might be busy when you come in, however, please just report to the reception staff as usual for your appointment. Please be reassured that we are continuing to take extra precautions to clean the Clinic during this time. We are continuing to work hard to ensure that the Clinic remains a Covid-safe environment.

All Clinic staff have now received their booster Covid vaccinations and are using self-testing kits twice a week before they travel to the Clinic.

NHS MS Specialist Nurses

The NHS MS Specialist Nurse service is under pressure at the moment due to staffing issues. You should continue to leave a short message along with your contact number on their telephone answer service. We ask for patience when waiting for a response to your enquiry, the nursing team will get back to you as soon as they can.

Please telephone: 0131 312 0720 (NHS and Anne Rowling Clinic patients only).


Thank you to all of our NHS patients and research participants for their patience and understanding of the changes required during the coronovirus pandemic and the ongoing impact this may have on our research and clinical care service.
