Welcome to Broadmead Medical Centre
Broadmead Medical Centre is an NHS GP practice, located in the centre of town (within Boots in Broadmead). Our opening hours are extended to give greater flexibility for our patients.
If you live within our practice boundary (details available in reception), you may register with us here. We provide all general medical services and operate chronic disease clinics, manage child health and immunisations, family planning and sexual health, also clinics for smoking cessation, alcohol and weight management.
In accordance with the current government and our NHS contract, all patients have been allocated a named accountable GP who will be responsible for your overall care.
If you wish to know which GP has been allocated to you, please ask reception at your next visit. You are still welcome to see any of our GPs and can ask for your named GP to be changed to reflect the GP you see most regularly if you wish.
Please do not telephone the practice for this information, our phone lines are very busy and primarily are for patients with urgent needs.
If you are 75 and over you will have already been allocated a GP and are entitled to an Over 75 health check.
Our walk in service is for any person whether they are registered with a local surgery or not. The service is led by our highly skilled nursing team who are able to see, diagnose and treat most of your medical needs.
This service is for the treatment of any minor illness or minor injury, this includes sexual health concerns, (but we do not have full screening facilities). Emergency contraception, wound management, smoking cessation and lifestyle management are all available. We can also perform procedures such as wound closure, (but not suturing) and clip removals. If your problem is not listed please ask our receptionist.
Please note: We do NOT have X Ray facilities on site.
The management of chronic diseases, long-term conditions and child immunisation are best managed by your own regular surgery. We are not able to issue sick notes or manage repeat prescription requests for unregistered patients. Please attend your own surgery for these things.
It is not always necessary to make an appointment as we operate walk in and wait clinics through most of the day. Towards the later part of the day we change to bookable slots to enable us to close up on time.
