WALK-IN EMERGENCY CLINIC - In response to complaints and suggestions about the appointment system, the Practice has chosen to adopt a walk-in emergency surgery.  Any patient with a single URGENT problem, needing to be seen the same day, may choose to attend between 8.30am and 10.30am on a sit and wait basis. Patients will be seen in order of priority.


Aldergate Medical Practice provides all patients with a named GP to oversee their care.  This will not affect systems already in place and you will be able to continue to book appointments with other GP's in the Practice.

The Practice is involved in the training of new general practitioners. These are doctors who have completed extensive hospital training and all are qualfied and hold the appropriate UK GMC registration. They are supervised by their trainers who are Dr Deshpande and Dr Meehan.

We also accommodate FY2 doctors (foundation year), these are doctors who have completed what used to be known as 'house jobs', they may want to become general practitioners but some wish to specialise in other fields, it is really important they have experience in the community.
