Welcome to Chapel Medical Centre
We are a friendly NHS GP training practice in Irlam, Salford.
We provide a wide variety of medical services from a converted Chapel which underwent major refurbishment in 2017.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient's needs at the forefront of everything, from checking opening times to letting us know what you think of us.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak in the UK, Chapel Medical Centre have suspended all face to face appointments with the Doctors and nurses. All Doctors appointments have been changed to a telephone consultation.
What does this mean for you? If you have an appointment with the Practice Nurse or HCA, then we will be in touch with you directly to let you know if your appointment has been cancelled or not. If you have an appointment with the Doctor already then do not attend this, the Doctor will phone you on the day of your appointment, so make sure your phone is switched on.
If you require an urgent on the day appointment then phone the practice as usual. The reception staff will need to know as much information as possible. This will then be passed onto the Doctor who will then phone you back. Once the Doctor has spoken to you and feels you need to be seen face to face then you will asked to come into the practice.
Please go to https://111.nhs.uk/service/COVID-19/ for the latest updates on COVID-19. If you fell you may have symptoms of COVID-19 then you MUST NOT attend the practice. Contact NHS111.
The advice for patients who suspect they have the virus is:
‘Do not go to your GP, pharmacy, urgent care Centre or a hospital if you become unwell.
‘Instead call NHS 111, or 999 if an emergency (if you are seriously ill or injured or your life is at risk), and tell them which country you have returned from in the last 14 days.’ The government list of affected countries and places is:
MERGER WITH IRLAM GROUP PRACTICE
Chapel Medical Centre are looking at the potential merger with Irlam Group Practice and we want your opinion. We are in early talks with Irlam Group Practice about this.
There will be lots of questions to be answered, but we want you to be involved from the outset.
What does this mean for patients at Chapel Medical Centre??? We are hoping not too much impact will be felt by the patients at Chapel Medical Centre. Yes of course the practice will become busier, but we will have more Doctors, nurses, HCA's etc to deal with the increase of patient numbers. You will still be able to see Dr Kapur, but you will also have the choice to see the others Doctor's employed at the practice.
What does it mean for patients at Irlam Group Practice??? The practice building at the group practice will close down once and if NHS England and Salford CCG agree the merger. All the clinical and non-clinical staff will move into Chapel Medical Centre and all Irlam Groups patients will be seen at Chapel Medical Centre. Again these patients will have the choice to continue to see Dr Dillon, but are also free to book with the other employed Doctors at the practice.
Our plan is to have 3 Doctor's, 2 Practice Nurse, 1 Advanced Practitioner, 1 Assistant Practitioner, 1 HCA, 1 Practice Manager, 1 Assistant Practice Manager, 3 senior admin/receptionists and 7 admin/receptionists.
Please feel free to email the Practice Manager at email@example.com with any questions or queries about this potential merger
Chapel Medical Centre is an established gold rated training practice and works closely with Manchester University. When you book an appointment to see a doctor at the practice you maybe seen by one of the medical students. All medical students are supervised by Dr Kapur and all patient cases are discussed with her before a decision is made about your diagnosis and treatment. We appreciate your support with the medical students and any feedback is welcome.
