Our Mission Statement

The Wand Medical Centre aims to provide first class up to date healthcare to the community while maintaining a family doctor relationship with all patients enabling continuity of care throughout a patient’s life. The Practice will continue to provide patient focused services using the criteria of clinical excellence providing healthcare to the community with equity and equality of access.

The Practice will invest in the development of healthcare staff enabling a highly skilled workforce to deliver the services required by the health economy. The Practice will integrate where possible with all allied clinical partners such as other primary care providers, secondary care hospitals and private healthcare organisations in order to encompass a full health service for the patient.

The practice will comply and encourage the principles of patient choice and ownership of services in order to provide an equitable service tailored to the patients needs.


Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
