About the centre

 

Here at Fairview Medical Centre we are dedicated to providing you with the best possible healthcare service. Our friendly and helpful staff will always endeavour to assist you in any way. Our practice caters for all generations and cultures and if you wish to register please call or visit the surgery and one of our friendly receptionists will be happy to help.

Our surgery is accessible to patients using a wheelchair and we have a small car park outside. We are a small practice with a full time Practice Manager, Practice Nurse, Health care assistant, attached District Nurse, Health Visitor, Midwife Health Care Assistants and six friendly receptionists. Fairview Medical Centre is also a ‘training practice’. This means hospital doctors wanting to enter into general practice spend six months to a year with us in order to gain the experience they need to become family doctors.

 

Practice staff will offer a high standard of courtesy and advice. Please extend the same courtesy and politeness to the practice team as you would expect to receive. Our reception staff are professional in their appearance, personable in their approach and highly experienced. Whenever possible we will provide a facility for confidential conversations between patients and reception staff. People involved in your care will give you their names and ensure you know how to contact them.

We have an active Patient Participation Group, currently (as of March 2014) made up of 8 members: 5 men, 3 women, of these, 3 are white English, 1 of Polish origin and 3 Indian and 1 of mixed parentage. 3 are over 65 and 5 are in the age range of 18-65. We are always looking for new members, particularly younger people who are under represented despite our best recruitment efforts.
