Dr Thomson

Dr Thomson was due to retire at the end of March 2016 but has been taken seriously ill and will not be returning to work. Thank you to those of his patients who have sent goodwill messages. 

In these circumstances, we have no choice but to employ locum doctors and we are aware that this will never match the quality of the service which our patients are used to. We wish to assure patients that we are working as fast as we can to find a permanent GP partner to support Dr Stephens and ask for your patience in the meantime.  

Pharmacy 2U

A private company called Pharmacy 2U has been sending letters to patients, inviting them to register with their service for home delivery of drugs. Please be aware that Pharmacy 2U is not part of the NHS and is not connected in anyway with Lechlade Medical Centre. Patients are free to decide which service they use to obtain their medication, whether it be Pharmacy 2U, Lechlade Pharmacy or elsewhere.

Did you know...

that when the surgery is closed, you can speak to and if appropriate, be seen by, an out of hours GP? If you phone the surgery when it is closed, your call will be automatically forwarded to the Gloucestershire Out of Hours GP Service. Alternatively, you can contact the service directly on 08454-220220.   

Patient Participation Report 2015

Lechlade Medical Centre has a representative group of 11 patients who give their time in helping us ensure that the services and facilities provided meet the needs of all patients. The practice publishes a report each year on the decisions taken as a result of this process. Click on "Survey Report" in the right hand column for more details. 

The Friends & Family Test

The Friends & Family Test was introduced for GP Surgeries by the Department of Health on 1/12/2014.

This is a very short questionnaire which we would like you to complete each time you use our service.

The results will be published monthly on the NHS Choices and the NHS England websites.

Welcome to Lechlade Medical Centre

bloodpressureAt Lechlade surgery the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.  We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.

The Practice has been fully computerised since the end of 1999. We are linked electronically for the receipt of test resultbloodpressures and patient registrations. Correspondence is scanned and recorded on patient records. The “Choose & Book” internet-based referral system has been in use since September 2006. We are registered under the Data Protection Act.

We hope all these developments will increase our efficiency, which in turn means we can help you more effectively. The extension to the Surgery building was completed in 1997 and has provided space and equipment to continue developing services at least during the next decade. We aim to provide the most up-to-date services needed in a rural community and ideas on improving these are always welcome.

The Practice premises have suitable access for all disabled patients.

As a rural Practice, travelling to hospital is sometimes difficult, particularly in an emergency; we have equipment and facilities to help you. We are supported in these endeavours by the Fairford Hospital League of Friends and a voluntary car service for those with no transport or sufficient funds (this is arranged by discussion with the doctor.)
