'Our Mission Statement'
Grange Road Medical Practice is committed to delivering the best possible healthcare, in a safe and caring environment for all of its patients.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
'Practices are open, The pandemic still means precautions continue reducing our capacity to see face to face patients. All practices are ensuring those patients who need face to face appointments get them. Government mandate precautions continue in the NHS such as social distancing in waiting rooms. This means we can not offer all patients directly book face to face appointments. Many are finding that telephone appointments and e-consults (available from practice websites) are meeting their needs in a much more convenient way allowing those limited numbers of face to face appointments to be used by those who need them. We thank everyone for their understanding at this time of great pressure for the NHS.
