Welcome to Heathcote Medical Centre
Our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.

Telephone system update 4th December 2013
We are experiencing some teething problems with our new telephone system which was installed yesterday. We have an engineer coming in today who will hopefully resolve the problems. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
We are delighted to confirm that Dr Riya Patel joined the practice on 12 August 2013. Dr Patel has a list of patients and works 4 days a week. Some patients will have to be be moved to this list. Due to the numbers involved it will be impossible for us to write to patients individually but we are sure that any patients affected will be very happy under Dr Patel's care. We also welcome Dr Akram Janmohamed who will be with us for an extended period to cover Dr Murphy's maternity leave and, as of 22 October, welcome back Dr Hilary Sindall from her maternity leave.
We remind patients aged 65 and over and those with a medical condition (please see the flu vaccinations tab for a list of the conditions) that they need to have a flu jab before the winter. Please call to make an appointment.
NEW IMMUNISATION PROGRAMMES
There are new immunisation programmes for those aged 70 or 79 against shingles and for children aged 2 or 3 as of 1 September 2013 against flu. Patients will be contacted.
