Chesterfield Medical Partnership
"Our aim is to provide the highest possible quality of care to all our patients in a responsive, supportive and courteous manner; with patients and staff working together to achieve this."
We have held three public consultation meetings (one at each of our sites) to discuss proposed changes to the opening hours at our Old Whittington and Holme Hall sites.
Please see our NEWS PAGE for information.

Improving Access to Appointments
We all know that the NHS is under extreme pressure nationally. At Chesterfield Medical Partnership we are doing all we can to mold our systems to best meet the needs of our practice population.
With this in mind you will start to see a change in the way we book our appointments.
We will be using our highly trained Nurse Practitioners to run clinics. They can diagnose, prescribe and refer patients in the same way as GP’s can. They will work alongside the GPs running their own clinics and referring to their colleagues where required.
In order for this system to work, you will find that the Reception team will be asking a standard set of questions (much like the 111 operators do). We want to reassure you that this is not because they are nosey, it is because they need to ensure you are booked with the correct clinician.
To help us help you, please book one appointment for one issue and do not come with a list for a 10 minute appointment.
We anticipate that this revised system will help with the access to appointments.
Thank you for your co-operation.
