Welcome to Saltash Health Centre
As some of you are already aware, Dr Cook will be retiring at the end of June.
Unfortunately we have not been able to take on a replacement GP straight away, and so there will be a period of time where we are short of doctors’ appointments. This is a national problem with a shortage of GP’s throughout the country.
To help us and you, our reception team will be starting to ask a few more questions when you call to make an appointment. This is to ensure that everyone is seen by the most appropriate clinician and in a suitable timeframe. We want to help you in the most efficient way and appreciate your help and co-operation with our questions.
We hope that you keep well, but if you need our help we trust you will feel our efforts on your behalf are well directed. The purpose of this website is to describe some of the people who work in the Saltash Health Centre and how you can best use the services we offer.
We are a seven doctor practice and are part of the primary health care team all involved in your caring for you. We practice from Saltash Health Centre which is designed to provide comprehensive medical services for our patients under one roof. In addition to the traditional doctor's consulting rooms we also have rooms for our Practice Nurses and Nurse Practitioners, Phlebotomists, Speech Therapist, Chiropodist, Counsellors, Midwives, Health Visitors, Physiotherapist, Dentist and a Minor Operations Treatment Room.
Our entrance is designed with easy access for disabled patients and we have a disabled toilet facility. There is also a hearing loop at Reception and in the waiting room. We believe you can therefore see that the Health Centre is not just a doctor's surgery but also an important community health building. We are lucky to have a large parking area in front of the surgery with designated disabled spaces near to our entrance. We have approximately 12,900 patients and the practice is centred in the town of Saltash but covers a wide outlying area approximately bordered by Landrake, Hatt, Cargreen and the River Tamar.
