 Welcome to Balance Street Health Centre.

Important Information: Dr Seddon's departure

Following the departure of Dr Seddon at the end of November 2018, we hope that you can bear with us until we find a replacement GP. 
Due to the ever increasing demands on primary care nationally, we’re all having to make changes to the way we work in General Practice. You will find that our Reception Team will ask key questions so that they are able to triage your call to the most suitable member of the primary care team. 
We have appointed a small number of regular GPs and Nurse practitioner locums who have the skill sets to meet your continuity of care at this difficult time. 
Because of the situation we find ourselves in we have sign posted Dr Seddon's patients, but are unable to provide you with another Partner at the practice due to the existing Doctors lists being at capacity.
Balance Street Practice is the only practice in East Staffordshire to still offer a personal list and although this is our preferred method of working we are unable to accommodate individual requests to change GP.

Thank you for your patience from all the Partners at Balance Street Practice.

Our next Staff Training Day is 7th February 2019. The practice will close from 1:30. Dispensary will be closed from 1:30-4:30.

**NEW** Our practice is involved with a new Living Well program - please check back soon for more information under "clinics & services"

New Patient Registrationregister_now_blue_sign

Anyone living in our practice area can apply to register with us. We aim to give top quality care whatever your age, gender, ethnicity or lifestyle. It is helpful if you can bring your medical card when you register.

Each patient will have a named accountable GP for the overall responsibility of care. You will be advised who your GP is upon registration.

Also, prior to registration, you will be asked to complete a New Patient Questionnaire giving details of past history, current medication, family history etc. This acts as a useful source of information until permanent records arrive from your previous GP.

You will also be requested to use our blood pressure machine and height/weight machine which are both located in a private area of our waiting room. These details will be added to your records following your registration.

Parents/Guardians will be required to complete a Vaccination and Immunisation Record form for all children less than 5 years of age.

You can fill in the Patient Questionnaire and Email Registration Form prior to calling at the practice by downloading them from the above “Registration Form” tab. The Alcohol Screening Form can be accessed by clicking here.

Please bring the completed forms with you when you come to register and a receptionist will check them through with you.  DO NOT POST OR EMAIL THEM.
