Welcome To Davyhulme Medical Centre
The partnership has been in existence for over 30 years providing medical services to the local community. Starting out from a small surgery at Canterbury Road, there have been many changes over the years.
The doctors, nurses and staff of the Davyhulme Medical Centre are committed to providing the highest standards of care, and welcome you as a patient.
Davyhulme Medical Centre is recognised as a training practice and appointments can be offered with Registrar GPs. Our practice also has links with Manchester University and we often have third or fourth year medical students training in the practice. If you are unhappy about seeing your GP with a medical student present, please inform the reception staff or your GP and the student will be asked to leave the room.
Please see Notice Board for details.
Drs Howard, Jordan, Wijeyesekera, Tower, Ashraf, Reeves, Aczel and Kumar (staff GP)
All services are accessible, but if you do need help, please speak to the receptionist.
Repeat Prescription Ordering is changing….
Do you have a Vision Online Services (VOS) account? If so, did you know that you can now order your repeat prescriptions online using your Vision Online Services (VOS) account?
Simply log in, choose the prescriptions tab and your usual repeat medication will be conveniently listed for you to tick and order. It is an altogether more secure and efficient method for ordering your repeat medication.
In addition, a VOS account enables you to book appointments online.
If you do not have a VOS account please call in to the surgery and pick up a form, or you can download the form from here.
So don’t delay, sign up for a VOS account today and enjoy the benefits of easier repeat prescription ordering and online appointment booking.

Help Shape Patient Services
Patient Participation Group
We have now recruited patients to establish a Patient Participation Group (PPG). This group meet with the GPs and management team several times a year to identify patients' priorities and issues, discuss planned practice changes and develop and review the annual survey.
If you would be happy for us to contact you by email or join the PPG, please pick up a leaflet at reception, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or download the application form here and return the completed form to the surgery.

A Patient Participation Group survey has identified that, amongst our patients, telephone appointments were a popular option.
Did you know that we already offer telephone consultations? These aren’t meant to replace face to face consultations but may be helpful and more convenient for you.
At present we offer telephone consultations in the morning for problems that you might feel need addressed more urgently but may not need a face to face consultation. These may include advice about managing common illnesses, extension of sick notes or problems with your medication. Don’t forget you can also discuss medication problems with your local pharmacist and if he or she is unable to help our medicine management team or pharmacist may also be able to assist. If, following a telephone consultation, the doctor feels it would be better for you to be seen in person you may then be offered a face to face appointment within an appropriate time.
We also offer telephone consultations for follow-up. If you’ve been to see your doctor and need to be reviewed again about the same problem but find it difficult to attend the surgery, please ask if a telephone follow-up appointment would be appropriate.
Finally, telephone appointments can be helpful to follow-up on hospital appointments and any changes that may have been suggested.
Telephone consultations are quick, convenient, help with continuity of care with your usual GP and may mean you don’t have to take time off work. So next time you need advice why not consider giving us a ring?
Your Health Records
The staff at this practice record information about you and your health so that you can receive the right care and treatment. We need to record this information, together with the details of the care you receive, because it may be required if we see you again.
We may use some of this information for other reasons, for example, to help us to protect the health of the general public generally, to plan for the future, to train staff and to carry out medical and other health research for the benefit of everyone.
We are currently involved in research studies for which we provide anonymised information from patients' notes. You cannot be identified in any way from this information as none of your personal details are given to researchers. Individual patients’ records are added into a much larger anonymous database, containing records from millions of patients. This information is used by researchers outside this practice. The database to which we contribute anonymised records is known as The Health Improvement Network (THIN). This data may be anonymously linked to other data, such as hospital data. This database is managed by a company outside the NHS which does not have access to your personal details, only to anonymous medical records. The data are used for research into such topics as drug safety, disease patterns, prescribing patterns, health economics and public health. Many of these studies provide useful information to medical staff on diseases, the use of drugs or outcomes of disease or treatment.
These studies may be performed by academic researchers or commercial companies amongst others. However, no researcher has access to your full details such as your name and address, initials or your full date of birth. The researchers are not given information about the patient, nor the practice name, address or post code.
If you would like to opt out of this data collection scheme, please let your doctor know and no data from your records will be collected for use in research. This will not affect your care in any way.
If anything to do with the research would require that you provide additional information about yourself, you will be contacted to see if you are willing to take part; you will not be identified in any published results.
Note that you have a right of access to your health records. If at any time you would like to know more, or have any concerns about how we use your information, you can speak to Wendy McDonagh on 0161 748 5559 ext. 1015.
