Welcome to West Hallam Medical Centre
Welcome along to our surgery website where we hope you will quickly benefit from a user friendly layout and a wealth of information about our healthcare services. Find out when we’re open and what to do when we’re not, all from the comfort of your own home.
Being seen by the Appropriate Clinician
When calling the practice you will be asked by the reception team the reason for your call. This is simply to allow the reception team to ensure you are seen by the most appropriate clinician. It is not the reception team being nosy. As with all staff receptionists are bound by a confidentiality clause.
The practice clinical team now consists of a wide range of clinicians who can manage all conditions. We hope you agree that it is important that GPs see and treat the most poorly and complex patients. It is not a good use of their time to be managing minor illness.
You will have heard and seen on the news that updated data protection regulations have been introduced form the 25th May 2018. These are called GDPR or General Data Protection Regulations. The practice adheres strictly to data protection regulations and asks you to read our privacy notice below.
