Welcome to The East Norwich Medical Partnership
The East Norwich Medical Partnership was formed in July 2009 from the former Willow Wood Surgery at Aslake Close in Sprowston, and the Sprowston-Thorpe Medical Partnership based in both Thorpe Health Centre, St. William’s Way, Thorpe St. Andrew and Sprowston Primary Care Centre, Aslake Close in Sprowston.
Our Practice Manager, Lisa Vandepeer, is responsible for the management of the practice. The practice has 7 GP partners. As well as our Doctors, we have a Nurse Practitioner, a team of Practice Nurses, a team of Health Care Assistants, and access to a full range of community based healthcare professionals including District Nurses, Specialist Diabetic Nurse and Palliative Care Nurses.
East Norwich Medical Partnership is a teaching practice and we may be hosting both GP Registrars and Medical Students at various point in their training. You will be made aware if you are seeing a Registrar or Student.
If a student will be present with the GP you are seeing you will be informed - you have the right to decline having the student present during your consultation - please advise the receptionist.
Dr. Amarwickrama is currently teaching a group of 2nd year medical students from UEA.
Dr. Singh is an Associate GP Trainer. We will be joined by Dr. Sarah Maclennan as an ST1 Registrar from 7th February 2018 and she will be with us for 6 months.
Both our premises are accessible by wheelchair and reserved parking is situated close to the front doors of both sites. A lift is available at the Sprowston site. Both sites have disabled toilets.
BABY CHANGING FACILITIES
We have baby changing facilities at both sites.
BREASTFEEDLING FRIENDLY PRACTICE
East Norwich Medical Partnership is breastfeeding friendly. Mothers are welcome to feed their children in the waiting room if this is where they feed comfortable. If you would like somewhere more private to feed your baby please ask at reception and a room will be found for you.
Please note that all calls to and from the surgery may be recorded.
Please be aware that CCTV operates at Sprowston Primary Care Centre within our waiting room areas.
FREE PUBLIC Wifi ACCESS
Public Wifi access is now being provided by NHS England for patients in GP Surgeries. This is now live at Thorpe Health Centre and will become live at Sprowston Primary Care Centre in the not too distant future.
MJOG Text/Smart Phone MESSAGING SERVICE
All surgeries across Norwich are now using the MJOG Text/Smart Phone messaging system to help us keep in contact with you. Please make sure we have your up to date mobile telephone number and that you have consented to let us use this to contact you. We can confirm your appointments, remind you of appointments, invite you in for reviews and send you information about the practice i.e. notification of closures. You can also easily cancel appointments by this method. If you have a Smart Phone you can download a free app from the App Store or get it on Google Play. See below for a patient guide to downloading the App.
MJOG Quick Patient Guide
We offer SystmOne Online Service. Patients who are registered for this service can book routine GP appointments and order authorised repeat medications.
AUTHORISED REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS
Save yourself time and energy and trips to the surgery by registering for Online Services and the Electronic Prescription Service - you will then be able to order repeat medications and your prescription will be electronically sent to the nominated Pharmacy of your choice - Simples! You are then not restricted to getting to the surgery during opening times to order or collect a prescription. You can also set up proxy access so that someone else can do this on your behalf. Ask at Reception for more details or see the Quick Links - Online Services for more information.
