Church Street Medical Centre
At Church Street Medical Centre in Eastwood the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
Wheelchair access is via a ramp. Patient services are all on ground floor level with no steps. A disabled patients’ WC is available and clearly marked. Corridors and doors are suitable for wheelchair access.
Appointment availability within the practice is being constantly monitored to try and create the right balance between appointments released on the day for acute illnesses and 'bookable' appointments for patient reviews, disease management and non-urgent patient care. Demand fluctuates and we endeavour to respond as quickly as we can.
Since the launch over 1200 patients have registered to be able to book appointments on-line via our secure log-on. See our online appointment booking guide and sign up now. Use the 'appointments'or 'cancel appointments' buttons at the bottom of this page if you have already registered
Not being able to get an appointment when you want it can be frustrating however, we do expect all patients and their relatives to treat our staff with respect. The practice operates a zero tolerance to bullying and abusive behaviour.
For less complex situations, we have two useful links to help you, which may reduce the need for an appointment; Self Help and Common Childhood Illnesses.
2013 Flu Campaign
We are well into our 2013 Flu campaign with over 1500 patients receiving their jabs.

- Carers; if you are receiving a Carer’s Allowance, or are the main Carer for someone whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill, or care for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill. This will be given on an individual basis at the GP’s discretion depending on your need.
Please contact the practice now to book your Flu jab.
We have just completed a practice survey. The results will be available on-line and in reception from February 2014.
A big thank you to all our patients who were able to spare the time to complete a questionnaire, your feedback will help both ourselves and Nottingham West Clinical Commissioning Group identify opportunities for change.
Repeat Prescription Requests
REMEMBER - DO NOT SHARE USER NAMES & PASSWORDS WITH ANYONE, PHARMACIES WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE THE NEW SERVICE ON YOUR BEHALF.
Please be aware that the message link on your repeat ordering page is to notify us of medicines you have been unable to order and notify us of which pharmacy you wish to collect your prescription from- we cannot provide a confirmation of order or a reminder or next prescription service.
Please do not ring the practice to check we have the order (the system is linked directly to our clinical system we have your order), this not only causes delays for patients ringing to get through regarding appointments etc, but impacts on the prescriptions teams’ ability to process the 100's of prescriptions we handle daily. Thank you
