Litchdon Medical Centre
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our new website www.litchdonmedicalcentre.co.uk has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations. Patients who previously used our old website to order repeat prescriptions, book and cancel appointments can use their existing logins on this site.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and support staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
Our premises have been developed to meet all current requirements as established under the Disability Discrimination Act.
We have a car park for patients calling at the surgery. There is considerable pressure on parking spaces at busy times, so please avoid leaving your car for longer than is strictly necessary.
Patient Participation Group
The practice is committed to improving the services we provide to our patients. To do this, it is vital that we hear from people about their experiences, views and ideas for making services better. The Patient Participation Group is an independent group and you can become involved by contacting Rob, the Chairman, on 01271 831296, emailing litchdonPPG@yahoo.co.uk
or going to the website www.litchdonpatientsgroup.co.uk
