We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
PATIENTS PLEASE NOTE
Due to an increase in the number of wasted appointments through patients failing to attend appointments without informing the surgery, it has become necessary to implement the following policy:
If you repeatedly fail to attend appointments you may be removed from this practice list and required to find an alternative doctor.
During the month of December 2017 alone there were
367 GP/Nurse/HCA Appointments which patients did not attend.
THIS EQUATES TO 61 HOURS OF WASTED CLINICAL TIME
This is 24 Clinics in which the Doctors and Nurses could have seen patients.
If you cannot attend your appointments for any reason please let us know as soon as possible, giving at least 24 hours notice. We can then offer the appointment to someone else.
The demand for appointments is ever increasing and we would appreciate your help in this matter.
The Partners at Meadowgreen Health Centre
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Our Practice premises have suitable access for people with disabilities and there are designated car parking spaces close to the surgery entrance. Toilet facilities enable wheelchair access and support for disabled people.
