Understanding General Practice, Michael Wright Local Medical Council
Following negative and damaging coverage about general practice in the media, our Chief Executive Michael Wright, has produced a video to help patients understand some of the unique challenges that practices face daily. You can access the video here if you wish to share it on your social platforms to help raise awareness and understanding amongst your patient populations.
The Institute of General Practice Management (IGPM) has also put a video together to raise awareness of the abuse that practice staff receive from patients. You can access their video here.

Exciting News!

Churchside Medical Practice work in collaboration with Roundwood Surgery, Acorn Medical Practice, Millview surgery and Forest Medical Practice to provide GP Appointments Monday to Friday and Sunday 8am-8pm and Saturday 8am-12pm. We also offer nurse appointments from 7.30am Monday - Friday.


This means if you require a non-emergency, pre-booked, doctors appointment when we are not open you may be able to see a GP at one of the practices listed above. You can book these appointments 4 weeks in advance by contacting the practice you are registered with. Unfortunately these appointments cannot be booked through the online system.

“Extended GP access service is accessible 7 days per week. If you require an appointment on a Saturday or Sunday please enquire with the reception team.”

This service is provided on a Rota basis.
