The doctors and staff at the NPMC are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of long term conditions such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal, postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and travel clinics.

Crisis in General Practice
Message from Dr Thorncroft
‘As some of you may already know, I am currently pregnant with twins and will be starting my maternity leave at the end of February. After the babies are born I intend to take a career break to care for my family, which means that I sadly will not be returning to the practice at the end of my maternity leave next year.
I have enjoyed working here for the past four and a half years, and have been made to feel very welcome by both staff and patients. The other GPs within the practice will continue to provide medical care for those patients who are currently registered with me until a more permanent replacement is appointed.’

Please be aware it is the patient’s responsibility to ensure repeat prescriptions are ordered on time. You can order your prescription up to 10 days before it is due.
Our doctors are very busy and cannot be interrupted to produce prescriptions urgently because the request has come in late.
When we receive a repeat prescription request, we shall have your prescription ready within 48 hours if collecting from the surgery or 72 hours if your prescription is to be sent to the pharmacist.
All electronic prescriptions will be with the pharmacist within 48 hours.
In most cases, if you are not able to take your regular medication for 48 hours this will not impact on your health, but you can avoid this interruption in you medication by ordering on time.
It is our policy not to order medication over the phone; we only take requests over the phone for prescriptions from housebound patients and we request these phone calls come in after 9.30am.
Protected Learning Time
The practice will be closed on Wednesday 25th May from 12pm to 5pm for protected learning time.

We are a training practice and have a GP registrar working with us undertaking their advance training in General Practice. Registrars are qualified doctors who have had considerable hospital experience and generally stay with us for up to 12 months.
We also have medical students, junior doctors and nurses undergoing training with us from time to time.
