Latest News

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 receptionist being nosy. The reception team have been trained to appropriately direct your call and 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.

Online Appointments

We will shortly be offering Online Appointments for the management of certain long-term conditions. This will mean we can undertake your annual long-term condition review and medication review without you needing to attend the Practice. Of course if a blood test or investigation is required you will need to attend the Practice. If you have Asthma and this would be of interest please email west.hallammc@nhs.net

Flu Jabs

Its flu season. This year Public Health have decided to offer a different vaccine for those aged 65 and those under 65 and at risk. This has caused supply problems across all the NHS. Its really important you have your flu jab. Please contact the Practice if you require a flu jab and the Reception team will be happy to help.

Patients Group Meeting

The next meeting of the Patients Group will be on Wednesday 10th October @ 6.30pm. The meeting will be held at the West Hallam Medical Centre. If you have time to assist the Patient's Group please call the Practice Manager - Richard Page
