Ashfield Medical Centre and The Grange Medical Centre
New NHS Patients Welcome
We have recently installed a new telephone service to improve the service to our patients. We are aware of a significant number of problems this has caused and are working hard with our telephone supplier to address this. Please let us know of any problems you identify. We endeavour to answer all calls as promptly as possible but be aware of the significant amount of calls we deal with each day. Please note our staff are not picking up the phone and hanging up this is a fault in the system we are trying to address asap.
For 17 weeks over the winter of 2014/15 we are working collaboratively with other nearby practices to offer Saturday morning opening to improve access to a GP when needed. We will offer on the day appointments for patient of all the participating surgeries. All GP's who will be seeing patients will have access to the patients full medical records. Our Practice is working with The Garden Surgery, Park Edge Practice, and Shaftesbury Medical Centre. The extended Surgeries are open from 8am to 12.15 pm and will be run from one of our sites The Grange Medical Centre. This runs from 13 December 2014 to 4th April 2015 only.
We are very pleased we are a training practice for GP trainees (fully qualified doctors who are undergoing further training to become independent GPs). Dr Walling is the GP trainer and oversees their training and time at the practice. Their presence means an increase in appointments for our patients and an enhanced learning environment in the practice. We get a new trainee approximately every six months.
We are taking part in the early role out of the Leeds Care Record this is an innovative local system deisgned to help share appropriate medical records with local hospitals and community services. For more information please see the page in clinics and services or access the website for this at www.leedscarerecord.org
