We have a full complement of practice and attached community health staff operating from our modern, custom built premises. We have two GP Partners and two salaried GPs at Academy Medical Centre, assisted by a team of nurses and healthcare assistants. We encourage continuity of care (seeing the same doctor) where possible.
The practice is fully computerised including an integrated appointment system and online patient services, and offers a wide range of clinics and services to patients. Patients' needs are at the heart of everything we do.
Of course we're not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.

Services at Academy Medical Centre
We offer a wide range of services to our patients - the list below highlights just some of them.
Please take the time to visit our Surgery Pod in the self test room which is located near reception.
You can perform simple checks of your blood pressure, height and weight at your own convenience, any time during surgery opening hours - no appointment necessary!
These checks can be for your own information, as part of monitoring treatment response, or before you go in to your appointment with the nurse or doctor. The results are entered into your medical notes and will be available to the nurse or doctor in your appointment.More about Surgery Pod
