Welcome to East Bridgford Medical Centre
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 Ali (Female) joined us in August 2017 and we have two recent additions Dr Goru (Female) and Dr Xander Cary (Male).
Due to lack of demand the FLU Day Saturday 29th September is now open to anyone aged 65 and above. For the other FLU Days please see the LATEST NEWS section.
NEW TELEPHONE SYSTEM
Thursday 27th September will see the installation of the new telephone system. There will be a short period on that day in the afternoon when the phones will be switched off. We envisage this will be no longer than 20 mins and is likely to be considerably less. If you need assistance during that short time please call 111 or if it is an emergency dial 999. There will be changes so please listen carefully to the options once the new system is up and running. Please bear with us during the period of staff training with the new system.
EXTENDED GP EVENING AND WEEKEND OPENING HOURS
As a Rushcliffe patient you can now access routine appointments in the evenings and at weekends. These appointments are best suited for things that will not need ongoing review by your usual practice.
You can book through your surgery during opening hours for appointments between 6.30pm and 8pm in the evening on weekdays and between 8.30am and 12.30pm at weekends. If you request one of these appointments, which are outside of usual working hours you will be offered a slot with a Rushcliffe GP, Nurse or Healthcare Assistant at one of three locations across the borough. The location will depend on the day of your appointment.
The additional evening and weekend appointments will be available at:
East Bridgford Medical Centre
Castle Healthcare Practice in West Bridgford
Keyworth Medical Practice
As you may not be seeing your usual GP, you will need to give consent for the GP you are seeing to have access to your medical records and to send information about your consultation back to your usual GP
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL EXTENDED HOURS APPOINTMENTS ARE PREBOOKABLE ONLY BY CONTACTING YOUR OWN GP PRACTICE.
THERE IS NO WALK IN SERVICE OFFERED.
IF YOU REQUIRE URGENT ASSISTANCE BEFORE 8AM OR AFTER 6.30PM, PLEASE CALL 111.
The practice had its first Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection in August 2015 and the results have now been published on the CQC website.
