We have a job vacancy available for a Clinical Coder. Please visit the link for more information.

we are hoping the national computer issues have been resolved but at times we are experiencing intermittent issues, please bare with us. We apologise for an inconvenience.

In the departure of Dr Seddon in November 2018 we are having to change the way we work at Balance Street Practice as there is a National shortage of GPs. We have a small pool of regular locum GPs to ensure continuity as best as possible. Our Reception team will be asking the reason for your call, this is to direct you to the best and most appropriate care. We kindly ask patients to bear with us as this difficult time.

Many Thanks from the Partners & Staff at Balance Street Practice.

Our next Staff Training Day is 16th October 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"

Patient Participation Group

customer_serviceThe Balance Street PPG was set up in August 2011, and works with the practice to offer the patients perspective on the services that are provided.
The PPG also helps to improve communication, encourage patients to take more responsibility for their health and provide practical support.

To help us accomplish this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can give us feedback on areas of improvement. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions by email, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received.

If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.
