Welcome to Richmond Medical Centre
Our vision is to provide high quality care to all our patients and to continually strive to improve our service to the community.
During Covid-19 we ask that patients do not come to the surgery unless invited to do so by the practice. We are trying to protect vulnerable patients, and practice staff. We have also reduced some of our services so that we can focus on managing patients with Covid-19. We are still able to assess and advise patients remotely about any concerns that they have which are not Covid-19 related. You can contact the surgery to get advice and assessment by telephone, email, and online via eConsult. If a clinician thinks that you need to be seen they can arrange for an appropriate appointment or perform a video consultation. If you are told that you need a face to face appointment that requires a visit to the surgery we request that you wear a face covering to the surgery, at the surgery and during consultations, as this is in line with government advice about face covering in public spaces where social distancing is difficult.
If you wish to make an appointment please use on of the following methods:
Telephone: 01522 500240
All other contacts with the surgery must be made by the above methods. Only patients with pre-booked appointments are permitted in the waiting room to reduce the risk of Coronavirus spread and to protect staff and patients.
We suggest all patients register for online access in the current climate. If you're not sure how to do this please ring the surgery after 11am any day and we will advise you and set it up.
We are trying to run our services as close to "normal" as possible. Thank you for your continued support during this time.
To Get Support as an extremely vulnerable adult- please register on the link below:
- Register if you have a medical condition that makes you extremely vulnerable to coronavirus. For example, you’ll be able to ask for help getting deliveries of essential supplies like food.
- If you’re not sure whether your medical condition makes you extremely vulnerable, register anyway.
- You can register yourself, or on behalf of someone else.
- If you know it, it’s useful to have your NHS number to hand. You can find it on any letter the NHS has sent you or on a prescription.
What is eConsult?
eConsult is free to use for NHS patients. Use eConsult to ask your GP surgery about your health symptoms, conditions or treatment. You can even request things like sick notes and GP letters.
It may not be necessary for you to attend for an appointment. You can submit details about your condition or your administration request and you will receive a response from the practice usually within 24 hours but you will be advised of the timeframe once you have submitted the online form.
