Welcome to Beechdale Medical Group
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.

Our Mission Statement
Our values are based on trust, openness, honesty and transparency
Our aim is to put you the patient at the heart of everything we do, applying the highest standards of clinical knowledge to our practice. We want to reach every member of our practice population, delivering services that are tailored to the individuals needs. Our emphasis is on quality and safety and we share and learn together as a team, respecting and supporting one another in achieving our objectives.
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.
All entrances to our practices have activated doors, enabling easy wheelchair access over level ground.
There are occasions when patients need to be assessed by a Doctor/Nurse which might involve intimate examinations.
Our practice is committed to putting patients at ease whenever possible and if you wish for a chaperone to be present during your examination, please do not hesitate to ask.
Occasionally the practice will close in the afternoon from 12.00 for staff training and updates - the following dates have been allocated for this to take place:
Tuesday 12 February, 2019
Tuesday 19 March, 2019

We welcome any feedback about how we are doing from patients, families and carers.
Included here are some useful contacts and links for support or advice if you are living with dementia or caring for someone with dementia.
