Welcome to Benchill Medical Practice 

 Benchill_External

The practice is a Group Practice based in an excellent modern health facility (with disabled access) offering a broad range of services . There are currently 6 doctors working within the practice, four partners and two employed doctors. Four of the doctors are female and two are male.

In addition to the doctors , the practice also employs two practice nurses and a healthcare assistant as well as recently becoming a GP training practice.

It is our belief that a great deal of the workload within the practice can be shared with the nurses. The nurses run a variety of clinics and these are constantly reviewed for their effectiveness. We positively encourage our patients to engage with the practice nurses for advice on Diabetes, Asthma/COPD, Heart Disease, Blood Pressure, Contraception, Vaccinations and Cervical Smears. Our nurses are considered to be experts and have a keen interest in keeping our patients well.

We welcome you and sincerely hope that you will join the list of Benchill Medical Practice patients.
