We apologise for screening all patients who wish to book appointments with a doctor or nurse for the risk of the Ebola Virus.
You will be asked if the patient for whom the appointment is for, has travelled abroad in the last 21 days (if the answer is yes you then will be asked if it was to Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone). If you have travelled to one of these places, NHS England has advised that GP’s ask the patient NOT to enter the Health Centre and to advise the patient that a GP will call them back promptly. If patients present at reception, they will be asked to leave a telephone number with our receptionist and if well enough to do so, to return to their car, or home. A doctor will then promptly phone the patient to assess their symptoms and advise them accordingly.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
We apologise if you have encountered difficulty in getting through to us on the telephone cover the last few months, we have been aware that there is a problem and can understanding that it is a frustrating and unacceptable situation for our patients.
We have been advised by our provider that a new system is being tested, and as soon as it is available to us, we will advise you of the installation.
Until this is resolved, we ask that you are patient with our Reception staff who are trying their utmost to answer your calls promptly. We are treating this as an urgent issue and will let you know as soon as it has been resolved.
Welcome To Bramhall Health Centre
Bramhall Health Centre is a long-standing teaching practice (we help teach qualified doctors who are training to become General Practitioners and are involved in teaching medical students).
There are nine doctors operating from a purpose-built accommodation in the centre of the village (90% of our patients live within three miles of the centre of the village). We have over thirteen thousand patients registered in the practice.
The building also houses other services run by NHS Stockport such as the dressing clinic nurse, counsellors, district nurses, health visitors, midwives, physiotherapists, speech therapists and podiatrists. This provides an ideal basis for a primary health care team approach to problems.
The practice is dedicated to providing a high level of medical care for our patients. We continuously strive to improve our services by encouraging staff attendance on update courses, organising in-house teaching sessions and audits for all staff.
