Bearwood Medical Centre - Autumn 2000

Situated by Safeway’s, at the heart of Bearwood, the Bearwood Medical Centre has been in existence for the last 18 years. During that time, it has steadily grown, starting off with very few patients in 1982, and now providing medical services to in excess of 4000. The Surgery continues to evolve, and within the last couple of years, we have had an extension at the side, and the interior has been extensively renovated and decorated. The Surgery is joined with another Practice in Winton, and Doctors provide medical care across both sites.

The Practice recently joined an innovative scheme, and became a pilot site for a project known as “Personal Medical Services” (PMS). To further improve the quality of care that we provide, and also the quantity of care, we are now looking very carefully at particular groups of patients, especially those with Ischaemic Heart Disease, and Lung Disease, to ensure that we provide the best care possible.

The Surgery produces a Practice Booklet, and if you require more details about the services provided, then please ask the Receptionists for a copy. We offer a prescription collection service to our patients, and provide access to the whole range of NHS services.

If anyone has any comments, please write to me at the Surgery.
