Welcome to The Molebridge Practice.
We provide comprehensive NHS primary care services to help you manage your health and well-being.
Our aim is to provide a high quality, caring and personal health care service to our whole patient population by:
- Putting our patients at the centre of what we do
- Having a highly qualified and trained multi-professional integrated primary Healthcare Team
- Offering our services in a safe, supportive and suitably equipped environment, using technological advances in healthcare systems for our patient’s benefit
We work very closely with our allied Community Nursing, Health Visiting and Specialist Teams to ensure your care is coordinated to the highest of standards. We welcome any comments or suggestions you may have.
We are a baby-friendly Practice. You are welcome to breastfeed your baby; please ask a Receptionist if you would like to sit somewhere private.
We aim to offer services which are ‘teenage-friendly’. In summary, this means that:
- We welcome teenagers and aim to put them at ease when they come to the practice
- We can assure teenagers that confidentiality will be maintained if aged 12-16, and they ask to keep details of their consultations confidential or if they consult us about potentially sensitive issues
- Teenagers are welcome to see a Doctor on their own if they wish and are aged 12-16. We would however advise them to come with an adult where possible.
Sexual health advice is available, as is advice on other issues such as depression, drugs, alcohol and self-harm and we can advise teenagers about emergency contraception if required.
Smoking is not permitted either within the Practice premises or in the Practice car park.
We welcome new patients to our practice
When you register you will be required to complete a registration form and questionnaire available at the practice or as a download as shown below.
You will be asked to return and make an appointment with a practice nurse for a health check within one month unless you need repeat medication (in which case an earlier appointment should be made with the doctor to have the medication authorised).
The health check involves an examination and questions will be asked about your current and past health in order that we may identify any preventable medical problems. You will also be required to provide a urine specimen.
You may see anyone of our doctors anytime, not just the doctor you are registered with.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
Acceptance on to the list is as at the discretion of the Doctor and we will ask you for proof of identity. (Please refer to our registration policy for more information and why we ask for this).
There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register with your chosen GP, for example you may live too far away. If this is the case simply choose another GP in your local area.
Please note that your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the Practice.
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a Doctor but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP Practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local Practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that Practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local Practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a Practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
Further Help about how to Register with a GP
You have the legal right to choose a GP Practice that best suits your needs. When you have found a Practice you like, you’ll have to formally register with it as an NHS patient by submitting a Registration Form to them.
