About the Wellbrook Medical Centre
The Wellbrook Medical Centre is a four partner practice currently providing General Medical Services to 10408 patients. We aim to provide the highest quality of Primary Healthcare to all of our patients with compassion, care and skill. The practice is committed to Health Promotion, Disease management and Prevention. We offer our services from our modern, well organised and friendly practice.
This website has been produced to help you make the best use of the services we provide and to introduce you to some of the people who provide them for you.
As you may be aware, you are currently able to book routine GP appointments using our online booking service, SystmOnline.
From 1st January 2015 you will be able to use SystmOnline to request repeat prescriptions and view parts of your medical record.
If you would like to register for this service please ask at our reception desk. You will be asked to show ID to verify your identity when you register.
We will be closing the repeat prescription service available from the practice website from 1st April 2015. Anyone using this service will need to register for SystmOnline from 1st January 2015 in order to continue requesting repeat medication online.
We have been made aware by the NHS Area Team for Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire that a company called Niagara Therapy has been targeting patients in the South Derbyshire area. The company appears to be cold calling patients to arrange one of their representatives to visit their home. It appears they are encouraging patients, especially the elderly, to purchase their products. We would like to inform all patients that this company does not represent this NHS or this surgery.
Your GP Cares Campaign
The UK family doctor service is widely admired around the world for its equitable, cost effective and leading edge provision of locally accessible high quality care and doctors remain our most trusted professionals. However, the environment which GPs are striving to provide services in is increasingly challenging. An increased demand on general practice caused by demographic changes, more complex health needs, and some care moving out of hospitals is all contributing to unsustainable pressures on the service. These inter-related factors are having a worrying impact on how care is delivered to patients.
That is why the BMA’s General Practitioners Committee has launched a new campaign, Your GP cares, to highlight some of the pressing issues facing general practice. Our GP and practice team care about the current situation and want to work with patients and government to find solutions and provide a better service. The BMA is calling for long term, sustainable investment in GP services now to:
• Attract, retain and expand the number of GPs
• Expand the number of practice staff
• Improve the premises that GP services are provided from
