General Information

We endeavour to treat all our patients to the best of our ability and to do this with dignity, respect and honesty.  Everyone at Bramhall & Shaw Heath Medical Group is committed to deliver an excellent service.  We ask all patients to highlight any concerns and address these professionally.


Continuity of Care

Building and maintaining a strong relationship between doctors, health professionals, and patients is essential to the way we work. This is especially so in the management of ongoing problems or long-term illness. In these circumstances we encourage patients to continue seeing the same health professional and wherever possible we will facilitate this through our appointments system. However, for a new problem, and where the doctor or nurse that you normally see is not available, or if you would wish to see someone else, then we would encourage you to see any of the doctors or nurses at the practice.
