Extended Access appointments are now available to Colchester Medical Practice patients from 6.30 – 8pm Monday to Friday, and also on Saturday & Sunday mornings and afternoons. These clinics are being provided by the GP + service at Bluebell Surgery in Colchester. Patients are able to make pre-bookable appointments to see a GP or Practice Nurse. For the clinician seeing you at that appointment to effectively treat you they will need access to your full medical record, you will be asked for your permission at the time of booking your appointment. Please speak to a receptionist at the surgery who can give you further details on the clinics available and will be able to book you an appointment if required.
The date for the next Patient Participation Group Meeting is yet to be announced. All patients from our 3 sites are welcome to attend and we look forward to seeing you all.
Shrub End Surgery, Castle Gardens Medical Centre, Wimpole Road and Parsons Heath Medical Practice have come together to form:
Working together will enable us to operate more efficiently and ensure that a greater proportion of our resource is focused on clinical care and improved access.
We will still be operating from all 4 surgeries and you will still be seeing your usual GPs and nurses.
We have now recruited a full complement of Doctors and Advanced Nurse Practitioners.
We are now fulfilling all our blood test needs at our surgeries.
We also work alongside a number of research companies.
In the meantime, if you have any comments or suggestions please drop a line to your Operations Manager.
