Welcome to Meadowgreen Health Centre
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
We would like to say a huge thank you to some very special people who have helped the Practice to get through this very difficult time.
Big shout out to ……
Bradfield School, who have donated to us very much needed visors to enable the Clinical Staff to see patients safely.
Also we would like to say a big thank you to Georgina Gunner from the ‘Helping Dress Medics’ Charity who has donated scrubs for the Clinicians to wear so they can follow infection control guidelines.
IMPORTANT PATIENT NOTICE
FROM THE PARTNERS OF MEADOWGREEN HEALTH CENTRE AND THE AVENUE MEDICAL PRACTICE
MEADOWGREEN HEALTH CENTRE AND THE AVENUE MEDICAL PRACTICE WOULD LIKE TO INFORM THEIR PATIENTS THAT AFTER A PERIOD OF MONTHS WORKING CLOSELY TOGETHER, ALIGNING OUR CLINICAL AND ADMINISTRATION PROTOCOLS, THEY ARE POTENTIALLY HOPING TO MERGE INTO ONE PRACTICE.
THIS WILL BE KNOWN AS MEADOWGREEN HEALTH CENTRE.
HOWEVER, WE WOULD LIKE TO STRESS THAT THE TWO BUILDINGS COMPRISING THE AVENUE SITE AND THE JORDANTHORPE SITE, WILL REMAIN OPEN AND PATIENTS WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS APPOINTMENTS AT EITHER SITE FOR ALL CLINICAL STAFF.
WE HOPE THAT OUR PATIENTS FROM BOTH SITES SEE THIS AS A POSITIVE MOVE, AS IT WILL GIVE THEM ACCESS TO A GREATER SKILL MIX AND SERVICES.
IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS, PLEASE CONTACT THE SURGERY TO SPEAK TO THE

If you have an upcoming appointment booked with us, please do not attend if you have a cough or fever. If you feel the matter could be managed by phone, please contact reception with a suitable contact number and we will contact you rather than asking you to attend.

There is evidence that wearing a face covering may help stop a person infected with COVID-19 from spreading the virus further. Therefore, in order to help us protect our patients and staff we are asking, if you can, you wear some form of face covering when visiting the practice, even if you do not have symptoms of COVID-19. This can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head. Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 2 or those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly - for example, those with respiratory conditions. You can find information on making and wearing your own face coverings via the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/how-to-wear-and-make-a-cloth-face-covering.
