Meridian Primary Care Network

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are a new way of working that enables health and other services to work together to provide better access for patients.

Since the NHS was created in 1948, the population has grown and people are living longer. Many people are living with long term conditions such as diabetes and heart disease or suffer with mental health issues and may need to access their local health services more often.

Practice Information


We have an adjoining car park which provides ample parking for all our patients. We encourage all patients and visitors to use the car park as on-street parking is limited and can be hazardous at times!

Wheelchair Access

We have a large and visitor friendly entrance and outer foyer which opens directly into the practice. This allows easy access for all our patients.

Our waiting room is spacious and comfortable. It has access to both the reception desk and dispensary hatch. It leads to the consulting rooms, with ease of access for patients, wheelchairs and prams.

Training Practice

We are a teaching practice for junior doctors, known as foundation year doctors who also work in the practice. These are qualified doctors at the beginning of their career and work under the close supervision of one of the senior doctors. 

The practice is involved in teaching medical students, usually in small groups.

The receptionist will inform you if your doctor is seeing patients with a student in attendance. If you do not wish to see a medical student please inform reception. Declining to see the medical student will not alter your care in any way.

We usually have students around the same time every year, between August and November.

GP Patient Survey

The GP Patient Survey is an independent survey run by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England. The survey is sent out to over two million people across England. The results show how people feel about their GP practice.
