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.
