Medical Care for
Specialist services we provide
Welcome to Mapleton Medical Centre
The practice was taken over by Prime Medical Group in 2017 and currently has five General Practitioners working at the centre. There is also a professional nursing team and friendly administration staff who service 100 patients a day.
We are committed to providing comprehensive care to our patients, including a focus on preventative health measures, and care planning for chronic illnesses. We believe an annual health check is important and we suggest you have one around each birthday. Preventative care requires a recall system. Please advise us if you do not want to be included in our recall system.
We all understand the importance of continuity of care, and encourage you to see the same general Practitioner (GP) where appropriate. It helps if you book ahead, rather than wait until the last day to make an appointment, so that you can see your usual GP.
We also support our local services near the medical centre
