Welcome to Abbey Field Medical Centre
Abbey Field Medical Centre will be merging with Portland Road Medical Centre from the 1 April 2016. Portland Road Medical Centre has two sites, one next door to Abbey Field Medical Centre in Ypres Road, Colchester and one at Elmstead Market. The service at Elmstead Market will remain unchanged for the time being. However, some of the services at Portland Road will move to Abbey Field Medical Centre.
All patients are very welcome to join our Patient Group - please contact the Practice to find out the date of the next meeting.
Consultations are by appointment. Please telephone 01206 517100 or call at reception or book via the internet.
You will be offered either a telephone or a face to face appointment. Every day there are appointments with the Duty Doctor – these appointments are for problems which require immediate medical attention. Approximately one third of our GP appointments are available to book in advance. All appointments with our nursing team or for blood tests should be booked in advance.
Most appointments last ten minutes and it is usually best to concentrate on one health problem during the consultation. Your doctor may ask you to make a further appointment to discuss the problem in more detail. However, if you have a number of problems you wish to discuss, you will need a longer appointment, therefore please let the receptionist know when you book.
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.
