Welcome to Bridge End Surgery
******** Monday 12th June 2017 ******
Staff update : Just to let all our patients know that Dr Richard Lilly is retiring on 24 July, he will be returning in a limited locum role from September 2017.
Our Nurse Practitioner has also left the practice and we will post an update on here about her replacement in the coming weeks.
Through this website we hope to improve our services to all our patients and enable you to find the information required at the click of a mouse. You can order repeat prescriptions online, download registration forms, change your name and address, provide feedback using the Friends and Family Survey Test and much more.
Keeping You Informed
You can find out information about medical conditions and diseases through our patient information leaflets as well as keep up to date with all the latest practice news and developments.
Like many other surgeries, we stopped doing repeats by phone some years ago for safety reasons as many medicines sound the same and have difficult names to pronounce which can lead to mistakes being made. There are several ways to order repeats, online, post, via several local pharmacies or by dropping thge request slip into the box in the surgery reception.
Our health centre has suitable access for disabled patients. All the patient areas including the waiting room, the consulting rooms and the toilets, have wheelchair access. If you require one, there is a wheelchair available at reception. There are designated disabled parking spaces in the car park.
We are always looking at ways of improving access to the surgery the car park as we recognise that due to the restrictions of the site we cannot always provide car parking for all users of the surgery. If you can park elsewhere it will help those less able particularly at busy times.
Please ensure if you use the car park and have to block other vehicles you leave your name and number plate with the Reception staff.
Out of Hours Emergency Care
If you need to out of hours emergency care then NHS Choices offers a search facility for A&E and Urgent Care Centres, so please click here for details.
We have a number of extremely useful pages in the right hand menu that can help patients understand medical conditions and provide a source of ready help, these include 'Self Help'; 'Family Health', 'Long Term Conditions' and 'Minor Illness'
We were inspected by CQC on 22 March and the findings can be accessed on the CQC website.
