Welcome to Queens Park Medical Centre
Queens Park is a purpose built medical centre providing suitable access, including a lift, for disabled and elderly patients. We have also had a Loop System fitted for patients who wear hearing aids. The surgery has a no-smoking policy.
We function as a team consisting of Doctors, Receptionists, Practice Nurses, Health Visitors, Midwives, Community Based Nurses, Secretaries, Computer Operators, Domestics, Counsellors, Cognitive Behaviour Therapist, Practice Pharmacist, Dietician, Community Psychiatric Nurses and a Practice Manager.
At Queens Park Medical Centre we work in partnership with our patients to use our resources to provide the best health care possible and treat all our patients equally irrespective of sex, race, colour, religion, religious belief, nationality, ethnic origin, age, disability, sexual orientation or on the basis of gender-reassignment.
All patients are allocated to a particular doctor and whenever possible this is the doctor you will see should you require medical attention.
The Practice trains junior doctors. They are fully qualified and have already done training in hospitals. You can expect them to provide a full range of GP services. If they are not certain about what to do they will ask more senior doctor for advice.
Queens Park Medical Centre welcomes enquiries from anyone living in the Practice area wanting to register with our practice. If you would like more details of this, the Practice or the services we offer please don’t hesitate to contact us.
1) Unfortunately in common with most general practices Queens Park is experiencing a significant increase in patient demand. In addition we are struggling to recruit suitably qualified and experienced staff, especially nurses. We know our waiting times are longer than usual and we are working very hard to improve them. Thank you for your understanding.
2) NHS England has calculated it currently spends £136 million on prescriptions for medicines, such as paracetamol, which can be bought from a pharmacy or supermarket and has advised GPs and nurses that they should no longer issue prescriptions for these medicines used to treat a range of minor health conditions. Please see our self help page for further advice on treating minor illness.
3) If you are eligible for a flu vaccine you should shortly receive a text or letter inviting you to make an appointment.
