Welcome to Heaton Medical Centre
Heaton Medical Centre is home to an NHS general practice providing a comprehensive range of medical services within friendly, comfortable and modern purpose-built premises. There is a car park, easy access for the less mobile, with all consulting rooms on the ground floor, and facilities for disabled people and families with toddlers and babies. There is a pharmacy at the practice to dispense your prescriptions.
The doctors and staff at Heaton Medical Centre are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.
As a Training Practice we are responsible for the education of our next generation of doctors and nurses.
We have a number of Qualified Doctors working at the practice, from Foundation Year Doctors to GP Specialists Trainees. All of these doctors are fully qualified to see any general medical condition presented at the practice. The doctors are on placement with us from 4 to 12 months. They offer appointments in the same way as your regular doctor.
We are also involved in training undergraduate medical students for Manchester University who may be present during a consultation. You will always be informed of their presence and have the right to be seen without the trainee should you wish.
