IMPORTANT PATIENT NOTICE
As from Monday 17th February the site at
127a Lowedges Road will be closed.
Meadowgreen Health Centre is relocating to Jordanthorpe Health Centre. This will take place around 31st March 2020 (Date to be confirmed) To help ease this transition, the Lowedges Site will close prior to the Old School Site and in order to maintain our full access to patients, all services will be relocated to The Avenue Medical Practice, 7 Reney Avenue, Sheffield S8 7FH.
This is a temporary measure until the services move into the site at
Jordanthorpe Health Centre.
However, the Practice intends to fully merge with The Avenue Medical Practice within the next few months and therefore patients will then be able to access services from both Jordanthorpe Site and The Avenue Site.
If you have any concerns about this, please contact the Practice.
Our telephone numbers will remain the same.

NEW ROLE - Physician Associate
My name is Jill and I am a Physician Associate (PA). If you require an appointment at the surgery you may be offered an appointment with me rather than one of the GPs.
PAs are a relatively new member of the clinical team, seen as complementary to GPs, rather than a substitute, taking on certain areas of workload and helping to free GPs to focus on the more complex patient cases.
PAs have a generalist medical education and work alongside doctors providing medical care in both GP surgeries and hospitals. We can work autonomously, but always under the supervision of a fully trained and experienced doctor.
Currently, PAs are not able to prescribe, order X-rays or CT scans but this can be done under a supervising doctor.
More information can be found on the Faculty of Physician Associates website.

Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Our Practice premises have suitable access for people with disabilities and there are designated car parking spaces close to the surgery entrance. Toilet facilities enable wheelchair access and support for disabled people.
Improving access to general practice: evening and weekend appointments now available
Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (6:00 PM – 10:00 PM) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM). For more information please visit www.primarycaresheffield.org.uk/patients
By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess
