Welcome to Chapelford Medical Centre.
We are a modern, forward thinking practice that is working hard to embrace the changes happening within Primary Care to deliver a high quality service to all our patients.
Our practice is working to improve primary care services across the town and we are looking forward to working closer with our community to help bring the changes that our health economy needs.
At present we have several GPs, 2 practice nurses 1 trainee nurse, a health care assistant, a clinical pharmacist and a wellness (IAPT) coach.
Our "receptionists" are being given the new role of "Care Navigator" to support patients and navigate them to the most appropriate service.
ALL staff are trained/are being trained to a high standard to better manage your needs.
Our on-line booking system is now active, to use this service you will need to register at the practice & receive your unique log in details.
Unbelievably it's that time of year again - Please call our reception to check if you are eligible for the vaccine by contacting the practice.
As from 1st July we will be offering evening appointments on Monday & Wednesday via video link with Push Doctor, these appointments will be booked through our triage system held daily with our practice nurses.
"Push Doctor is the leading light in online GP consultations, providing video appointments with NHS-trained GPs to patients across the UK. Patients can book an appointment online, by contacting their surgery, or through the app, and be seen wherever they feel comfortable, whenever suits them. The Push Doctor platform is already live in a number of NHS surgeries across the UK – presenting an all new way for patients to see a doctor without having to attend the surgery. Push Doctor's platform is an additional part of the NHS service available at the surgery. It is completely free and there is no need for patients to de-register from their regular GP in order to use the service"
For more information on Push Doctor visit www.pushdoctor.co.uk.
Our exciting new build for Chapelford Medical Centre is well underway. The building worked commenced with the ground breaking ceremony at the Chapelford Christmas Fayre. We are looking at a completion date for late November 2019.
Chapelford Medical Centre has an active Patient Participation Group. We are encouraging membership to support the future development of our services for our patient population please contact PPGChapelford@yahoo.com for more details about the group.
