Welcome to Park Crescent Health Centre
"Our mission is to promote a healthy community through mutual understanding and respect”
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
The surgery is having an important IT upgrade taking place between 1pm-3pm today (25th April). This limits the service we can offer during this time as we will not have access to our clinical and IT wider system.
We apologise for any inconvenience during this time.
The surgery is accepting new patients
The surgery has been working hard throughout the last 6 months to build up our Clinical Team, and we have been accepting patient registrations. We are keen to show that we are providing a range of appointment options for our patients and also have some exciting new developments in the coming months.
We are please to announce that we have a further 2 female GPs who have started with us: Dr Helen Feane and Dr Julie Sharman. Both will be a great asset to the surgery and improve GP access.
In the coming month we will have a new Mental Health Practitioner starting in the surgery. Sarah brings with her a wealth of experience in this specialty and we are excited to see the impact of this new and innovative role.
We can offer appointments with our GPs, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, a Clinical Pharmacist, and our Practice Nurse Team.
Patients wishing to register with the surgery are asked to complete a number of forms. This is to make sure that we receive enough information about you to start providing appropriate care as soon as the process is complete.

Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP)
We are qualified nurses who have had substantial additional training in order to work at an advanced level
The expertise of the ANP in primary care (e.g. GP practice) lies in our ability to operate as a ‘generalist’. The ANP provides complete episodes of care for patients of any age and with a wide variety and range of presenting problems and health care needs. This encompasses the provision of evidence based, high-quality care for patients whose issues fall within: urgent/acute episodes, long-term/chronic conditions, health promotion and public health. (RCN, 2012)
The advanced nurse practitioners at this practice are:
We work closely with the other members of the primary care team which includes the GP’s, practice nurses, pharmacist and midwife.
Examples of problems you can see us for include:
Minor illness – e.g. coughs/colds/rashes/diarrhoea & vomiting/urinary problems/flu/stomach pains/ear problems/gout/neck pain/piles/back pain etc.
Minor injury – Any limb/joint problem/back pain/cuts and wounds/head injuries etc.
Chronic illness – Problems with your Asthma/COPD, chronic lung problem/High blood pressure/Cholesterol/Diabetes.
Contraception – Problems or concerns/questions about your pills, coil, emergency contraception.
Women’s health – Vaginal discharge / pelvic pain / abnormal vaginal bleeding / heavy periods.
Medication concerns – Concerns or questions about your medication. Our Practice Pharmacist can also see you for this reason.
None of these lists are exhaustive
As ANP’s we can request investigations if your condition indicates they are needed. These include blood tests, urine tests, swabs, x-rays and ultrasounds.
We can refer you to other services if required. This includes, but is not limited to, the hospital for specialist opinions or to services in the community.
