Starting on the 17th of August we are going to be trying out a weekly Triage System with our Prescribing Practice Nurse Leola Taylor. This will involve a telephone triage with Nurse Taylor where she will get details of the problem for the day. If appropriate you may be offered an appointment with either Nurse Taylor or the Emergency Doctor for that day. For information on what Nurse Taylor can treat please ask at reception.
Although we will do our best to ensure that the triage system runs smoothly, we would appreciate your patience and understanding during the trial period as we work out how best to deliver the service.
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.
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.
