Welcome to our practices and thank you for choosing to register with us. Tudor Medical Centre is based in Wolverhampton by New Cross Hospital and Wellington Road Surgery is based near Bilston Centre, Leicester Street Medical Centre is in Whitmore Reans and Owen Road Medical Centre is in Pennfields. With our own team of doctors, nurses and clerical staff, our aim is to provide for you, the patient, the highest standard of care.
This website will inform you about the practices and what we have to offer but if at any time you have any queries or questions about your own or your family’s health, then please call us or speak to the reception team. They will be able to assist you with your query or advise you as to whom is most likely to be able to help you.
Tudor Medical Centre, Wellington Road Surgery, Leicester Street Medical Centre and Owen Road Medical Centre are NHS General Practices providing a comprehensive range of medical services to 18,400 patients within a friendly practice environment. In recent years our premises have undergone major refurbishment and extension. There is easy access to all facilities for wheelchair bound patients or those with physically limitations.
Although we work across four different sites, think of it as one large practice under Tudor Medical Group. Our clinical staff as well as our admin staff rotate between the sites to provide care for our patients. Whilst patients often prefer to be seen at a particular site, you do have access to appointments and services at all four sites, which greatly increases our capacity to provide the care that you need.
There are car-parking facilities for use by patients when visiting Tudor Medical Centre and Wellington Road Surgery. The car-parking facilities at Owen Road Medical Centre and Leicester Street Medical Centre are staff only but there is street parking available. For patients with physical limitations there is a disabled entrance providing direct access from the car park into the Medical Centre.
The practice is well organised, paper-light with an emphasis on quality and teamwork. We have a large practice team consisting of Doctors, Practitioners, Nurses, Managers, Health Care Assistants, Receptionists, Administrators and cleaners with a wide variety of expertise. The Practice also have strong links with community staff such as Midwives, Health Visitors, Pharmaceutical Prescribing Advisors and Health Trainers who all hold regular weekly clinics at Tudor Medical Centre.
The Practice is dedicated to continuous quality improvement. Since 2009 the practice has grown considerably in size which reflects the high standard of care we aim to provide.
The practice participates in the national Quality and Outcomes Framework standards achieving highly each year and has its own patient participation group.
All four Practices hold a General Medical Service (GMS) contract with NHS Wolverhampton. The practice has made a commitment to working within the new NHS framework and is a member of the Wolverhampton Clinical Commissioning Group.
Our computer system allows us to identify teaching and learning opportunities and we have not used paper records since 2004.
Our current system is EMIS Web and the electronic document management for all external correspondence is undertaken through a piece of software called Docman. This fully integrates with the clinical system.
The information structure within the practice supports important areas in our clinical governance framework such as complaints, significant events and the national Quality and Outcomes Framework.
Our practice population spans the social spectrum from the local area looking after patients of all ages and backgrounds.
In line with the Government’s announcement, the NHS is aiming to offer every adult the chance to book a COVID-19 booster vaccine by the end of the year. This means our practice is now prioritising the booster rollout.
As part of this, some of our routine services may be stood down temporarily to allow us to focus on protecting as many patients as possible.
We are still there for anyone who may need care for an urgent need, but would ask for patience as we support this key national priority over the coming weeks. We hope to be able to stand back up any services as soon as possible and will update this page as soon as we know more.
Please don’t forget there are many services available for you, depending on your condition. These include:
Self-care – This is the best choice to treat minor illnesses and injuries such as hangovers, coughs, colds, grazes, small cuts or sore throats. Many of these can be treated at home, simply with over-the-counter medicines and plenty of rest.
Pharmacy – Pharmacists can give advice on and treat a range of symptoms. They can support you with things such as diarrhoea, earaches, painful coughs, sticky eyes, teething and rashes.
NHS 111 – You can access 111 online or via the telephone. This is for any urgent but non-life threatening health concerns. They will be able to signpost you to the relevant service and provide advice where appropriate, or book you in to an Urgent Treatment Centre.
A&E / 999 – You should only attend A&E or dial 999 in a life-threatening emergency such as severe bleeding, breathing difficulties and severe chest pain.
If you are now eligible for your COVID-19 booster please book it as soon as you can. It is vital as many people as possible get boosted as soon as possible. Please do not ring the practice regarding your boosters, instead visit Covid-19 Vaccine | City Of Wolverhampton Council or call 119 to book an appointment or to find a walk-in clinic near you. You can also find out more about who is eligible, how the vaccine is given and other frequently asked questions. If you are a housebound patient, there is a community team which will be coming out to you to vaccinate you, so please do not contact your GP as the team will be making contact with you.
