Patient Access Help notes
If you have any problems please do not hesitate to contact a member of our Reception Team who will be happy to advise you.
We apologise if you feel the request to bring in photographic ID is an inconvenience, however this is just a 'one-off' request to satisfy Data Protection guidelines. As before each individual family member who is a patient and would like to use the online service, will need to register for their own ID to access the system.
Following advice from NHS England everyone now has a named accountable GP, however all patients can still see which ever GP they choose for their consultations. If you wish to know who your named GP is please contact Reception/Secretaries. However if you receive repeat prescriptions from the Practice, your named accountable GP will be detailed on the prescription.
Welcome To Bramhall Health Centre
Bramhall Health Centre is a long-standing teaching practice (we help teach qualified doctors who are training to become General Practitioners and are involved in teaching medical students).
There are seven doctors operating from a purpose-built accommodation in the centre of the village (90% of our patients live within three miles of the centre of the village). We have thirteen thousand patients registered in the practice.
The building also houses other services run by NHS Stockport such as the dressing clinic nurse, counsellors, district nurses, health visitors, midwives, physiotherapists, speech therapists and podiatrists. This provides an ideal basis for a primary health care team approach to problems.
The practice is dedicated to providing a high level of medical care for our patients. We continuously strive to improve our services by encouraging staff attendance on update courses, organising in-house teaching sessions and audits for all staff.
