Services Offered By Fulwood Green Medical Centre
Fulwood Green Medical Centre offers a full range of General Medical Services and some additional services.
Each of our doctors holds at least one general surgery per week. All aspects of healthcare can be dealt with and consultation slots are 10 minutes long.
Our on-call doctor runs a drop-in Emergency Surgery from 8:30-10:00am Monday to Friday. Patients with conditions they believe to be urgent will be seen for single problems only. Due to the time pressures on this busy clinic, patients attending with routine problems will be asked to book another appointment.
Patients have a right to an urgent assessment by a doctor or nurse. The location of this assessment is at the discretion of the practice. Home visits will normally only be offered to housebound and terminally ill patients. Children can usually be brought to the surgery and therefore would not be offered a home visit. Our Nurse Clinician does routine long-term condition management visits to those who are housebound and we routinely visit everyone after discharge from an emergency hospital admission.
