Welcome to the Haddenham Medical Centre
Welcome to the Haddenham Medical Centre Website.
We hope you take your time to browse our website where you will find lots of useful information about the surgery and the services we offer.
We are proud to be a long-established training practice and as part of our teaching commitment, doctors from other practices occasionally visit the health centre to assess the standard of our records and the care given.
We are all committed not only to help train new health care professions, but to continue the development of our own knowledge and skills. To that end, we regularly have clinical and whole-team meetings for education as well as to cover business and administration matters.
May 2022 update
We are continuing to have a very challenging time in the practice. We currently have three of our seven receptionists off sick including with COVID. We are very grateful to other members of the team who have stepped up, working above and beyond, and in unfamiliar areas to support the work in reception.
We have had two of our regular doctors off sick throughout April and one remains off work. There is a national shortage of GPs and locum GPs are very difficult to find now. Therefore, it has not always been able to find additional doctors. We are grateful to our doctors who have worked extra shifts and cancelled leave to help cover gaps.
We are trying to signpost people to other professionals who can help, such as our practice pharmacists and physiotherapists. We have also been able to use some excellent Advanced Nurse Practitioners. Unfortunately, we are having some patients refuse to speak with these professionals even when their problem could be easily managed by them. This is causing extra pressure on the doctors’ appointments. Please take advantage of all the options for help that exist.
This is a challenging time for the NHS. At Haddenham, we are continuing to work as hard as we can to manage these difficulties, but it cannot be 'service as usual'. We are grateful for your continued support and patience. We will try to keep our patients updated through our website, Facebook page, Patient Participation Group, and our excellent local community websites.
