Welcome to Newlands Medical Centre

We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.
We are committed to teaching and training to improve the quality of care provided and you may be offered appointments with doctors in training or they may sit in during your consultation with the doctor. They are fully qualified and registered doctors and are here as part of their medical training program.We also teach medical students and they will always be closely supervised by one of the other GPs here.Your medical records may also be used for teaching and training purposes but strict confidentiality will be assured. If you have any objections to the above please inform the administration staff of your concerns and we will try and accomodate your wishes.
Electronic Prescription Service
We have recently started The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). It gives you the chance to change how we send your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines from.
If you collect your repeat prescriptions from the practice you will not have to visit the practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, we will be able to send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
Patient Access On Line:
Its your choice, if you wish to, you can now use the internet to book appointments with a GP, request repeat prescriptions and look at some aspects of your medical records. Please ask reception for details.
NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP
The practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP.
The practice does keep a record of your accountable GP. If you wish to be told the name of your Accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.
We are trying to make communication easier for our patients.
