Welcome to Abbey Field Medical Centre
Abbey Field Medical Centre, formerly Mersea Road Doctors' Surgery in Colchester, provides the highest quality healthcare to patients in the area. Our doctors, nurses and all our other staff are dedicated to offering a professional service and this surgery website will help us to keep all our patients up to date with news and information about our practice.
Morning Walk-in Clinic
With effect from Monday 16th June 2014 we will no longer be offering our emergency on the day appointments service. Instead we will be offering a morning Walk-in Surgery for all patients wishing to see a doctor on that day. You will need to arrive between 8.00am & 10.30am, Monday to Friday in order to be seen. If you arrive after 10.30am YOU WILL NOT BE SEEN.
We will still be running our normal early morning and afternoon pre-bookable routine and follow up appointments which you can still book in the same way by telephone or at the reception desk. The nurses clinics will remain unchanged. You will not be able to see a nurse in the Walk-in clinic.
Please be advised that you will be allocated an appointment on arrival but you may have to wait a little while before you are seen by the doctor. There will be 2 queues operating at the reception desk during morning surgery. One queue will be for patients wishing to be seen in the Walk-in Clinic and the other queue will be for patients with general enquiries such as booking a routine appointment, dropping off or collecting a prescription etc. Obviously this is a new service and we envisage a few teething problems. We ask for your patience and understanding during the transition period. Thank you.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
From 1 November 2013 we have changed the way in which we manage our appointments. If you need an URGENT appointment, for the same day, please call before 12.30pm.
