Parkshot Medical Practice was founded in October 2014. It is the combination of two local well established traditional GP Practices that merged in April 2014, and then moved to new premises in central Richmond. Between them they have over 100 years’ experience and have seen a great many changes to the NHS. They both began in Victorian family houses which were endlessly extended and improved until they simply became too small and cramped to provide safe and quality services to an ever increasing number of local patients.
The wonderful state of the art building that we now occupy has four floors and consists of 14 consulting rooms, 2 waiting rooms, a minor surgery suite, and numerous administrative areas and offices, mainly located on the top floor.
Our Clinical Team consists of 3 GP Partners, 6 Associate GP’s , GP Registrar as well as a strong nursing team of Practice Matron, Practice Nurse and 2 Health Care Assistants.
Our Practice philosophy is to maintain a high standard of clinical care and service, provided in a welcoming and comfortable environment, supported by a professional, yet compassionate team of qualified, well trained and friendly staff.
Please remember that if you arrive late for your appointment, it is likely that you will not be seen that day and will need to re schedule
We have been listening to the increasing number of complaints about how long you often have to wait to see your doctor/nurse after arriving for your appointment.
Historically, our clinicians have attempted to try and "squeeze in" latecomers as a courtesy. Recently however we have noticed that a great many of our patients are routinely arriving a few minutes late. This does not seem significant to them, but multiply this several times and then add some difficult clinical issues and doctors are quickly running very late.
Clinicians hate to keep patients waiting and this scenario puts huge unnecessary additional pressure on them and can even make consultations less interactive.
We very much hope that taking this action will mean that our doctors run more to schedule and the majority of our patients are not kept waiting too long.
Thank you for your understanding
