Welcome to East Bridgford Medical Centre Online
There are currently four doctors who work regularly at East Bridgford Medical Centre, three partners: Drs Scaffardi(Male),Stewart( Female),and Cope(Male) and Dr Pryor (Female) who together with our staff, provide a comprehensive medical service for East Bridgford and surrounding villages. Patients registered at the medical centre have a named accountable GP who is responsible for their overall care, however you can make an appointment to see any of the doctors within the practice.
Our practice is a training practice for GP registrars. These doctors, who are fully qualified, are usually with us for four to twelve months at a time. Dr Samantha Parfitt (F) is here until August 2017, Dr Adnan Iqbal (M) and Dr Christelle Hasbani will be working with us until August 2016.
East Bridgford Medical Centre (EBMC) Will Start Building work on Monday 23rd May 2016 start the expansion of the Medical Centre by adding additional treatment rooms and office space for staff. The aim is to provide better patient service by permitting more procedures to be done at the EBMC. The works are expected to take 24 weeks
During this time, the Practice will remain fully open to all patients.
Patients will still be able to park in the car park, but please be aware that there will be extra vehicles in the car park due to the Construction staff and plant. If you live locally then please consider walking to the surgery during the period of construction rather than driving if possible.
The practice is proud to announce that there will be 5 new treatment rooms constructed to add to the 7 existing clinical rooms already at the practice. The aim is for more services to be offered locally for our patients.
Karen Montrose – Practice Manager has been asked to comment on the build, “We are very excited to offer improved treatment room facilities to our patients which will involve the expansion of the services that EBMC offer to our patients in the very near future. In the past 12 months we have recruited Rachel Green, Lead nurse – who is a prescribing nurse practitioner. Rachel will be holding independent clinics at the surgery to supplement the surgeries that are provided by our GP team. The Government is encouraging more services to be run in the local community and this exciting development gives us the opportunity to bring some hospital services into our community in the coming years. In these times of austerity it is heart-warming to know that the surgery can keep up to date with new demands and services.
