We have a job vacancy available for a Clinical Coder. Please visit the link for more information.

we are hoping the national computer issues have been resolved but at times we are experiencing intermittent issues, please bare with us. We apologise for an inconvenience.

In the departure of Dr Seddon in November 2018 we are having to change the way we work at Balance Street Practice as there is a National shortage of GPs. We have a small pool of regular locum GPs to ensure continuity as best as possible. Our Reception team will be asking the reason for your call, this is to direct you to the best and most appropriate care. We kindly ask patients to bear with us as this difficult time.

Many Thanks from the Partners & Staff at Balance Street Practice.

Our next Staff Training Day is 16th October 2019. The practice will close from 1:30. Dispensary will be closed from 1:30-4:30.

**NEW** Our practice is involved with a new Living Well program - please check back soon for more information under "clinics & services"

Disabled Accessibility

disabled_bayHere at the Balance Street Health Centre, we are committed to providing accessibility to all our patients.

As a result of this, we currently have:

  • 5 disabled parking spaces outside the front of the practice with an accessible route to the practice entrance
  • Entry to the building via ramped approach with hand rail with the option of non-slip steps
  • Automatic, wide entrance doors to practice
  • Reception clearly signed with multiple height desks
  • Wide internal doors and lifts to all floors
  • All floors have a disabled toilet with secure grab rails

In order to continually improve our accessibility we will:

  • Ensure signage is clear and non-obstructive
  • Provide clearly marked and wider disabled parking bays
  • Allow guide or other assistance dogs into the premises
  • Provide a range of high-backed winged-chairs with a high seat base to assist elderly or disabled patients in standing or sitting
  • Offer private room facilities for patients who may have communication, reading, or writing difficulties
  • Provide a spoken CD version of the practice leaflet
  • Allow disabled patients to make appointments by alternative methods (e.g. text messages, online booking, or letter) and we will respond to these requests using the method most appropriate to the needs of the patient
  • Train staff to help with wheelchairs, partially or non-sighted patients, or those with other special needs
  • Offer a service whereby patients will be able to telephone the practice, from their mobiles, if they require any assistance in accessing the building or its services.
