Welcome to Studholme Medical Centre
We have had over 1300 patients register recently hence apt booking is taking longer than we would like. We do have new staff joining in April and May to help with the increase. Thank you for your understanding.
We hope our website will provide clear and concise information in an easy and convenient format.
It may take several weeks before the NHS send to us your medical records. Until such records are available it would be very helpful if you could provide us with your past and current medical conditions including any medications you may be taking. It would also help if you brought a copy of your repeat prescription request sheet to the GP/pharmacist appointment. Please see attached for more details: Prescribing Information New Patients.pdf
To help communication with patients we are now collecting email addresses. Please click on the following link to send us your email address: send email address via comments form or use the box in reception/give your email address to one of our receptionists or clinicians.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. You can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment. Click here to read our practice booklet Practice Booklet

NHS Free Health Check
Don't forget you can book your free NHS health check if you are between the ages of 40 -74yrs old and have not had a check in the last 5 years. Call reception now to book your appointment and get your health MOT done. These checks are not suitable for those patients that already have conditions like diabetes, heart disease, hypertension etc.
Ear Wax Removal and Audiologist service
We did voluntarily offer ear syringing however this is no longer affordable and the NHS do not wish to fund GP’s to provide this service. We do realise that this is an important service to patients hence we provide a free room and administration services to a private company to provide micro-suction to patients. The surgery does not earn money from our patients for providing this service. This service can be used for children or home visits can be provided if required. Several surgeries in the local area are now providing a similar service.
Dentists and Medication
Your dentist is the right person to recommend and prescribe medicines for your dental condition. Please do not expect your GP to prescribe medicines that are best accessed via your dentist. GP is not allowed or qualified to give advice relating to dental matters. If out of hours call NHS 111 or local A&E.
