Collings Park Medical Centre
About the Practice
The practice was established before the formation of the N.H.S. by a singel-handed practitioner working from his house in Eggbuckland Road serving the then semi-rural areas of Compton and Hartley. Some patinet even remember cattle being driven along Eggbuckland Road. With the building of new housing in Efford and Eggbuckland however, the practice has grown. Several doctors now practice in the present surgery which was newly converted and opened in 1990.
The team take great pride in providing a friendly and efficient family doctor service from our modern computerised surgery. Doctors, Nurses, Health Care Assistants, Health Visitor, Midwife and Administrative Staff form the team which works closely together, not only to help you when you are ill, but also to try to prevent serious diseases from occurring.
We serve an area bounded by:
- Forder Valley Road
- Delamere Road
- Deer Park Estate
- Blandford Road
- Seymour Road
- Mutley Road
- Oxford Avenue
- St Gabriels Avenue
- Peverell Park Road
- Crownhill Village
- Fort Austin Avenue
A map giving this boundary in more detail is available in the surgery for inspection. If you are moving outside the area and wish to stay with the practice please discuss this with the doctor/Practice Manager as it is not always possible to keep patients registered at the practice who move out of the Practice area.
Access to the Surgery
The entrance to the surgery is approached via a wheelchair ramp or a step. There is adequate on street parking and a disabled parking bay outside the surgery.
Disabled toilets are available on the ground floor. The practice does not have a lift to the 1st floor doctors consulting rooms, therefore patients who cannot negotiate stairs are asked to inform reception, the doctor will come down to see them in the middle treatment room.
We would request that pushchairs are left outside due to the limited space in the waiting area.
