Welcome to Westside Medical Centre
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register. You will find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
URGENT MESSAGE RE TEXT MESSAGES
Please note we have a number of text messages that have been sent to patients regarding appointments at midnight on a Sunday. This is an error in our texting system which is being worked on at the moment. Please ignore the messages and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
If you qualify for a flu injection, we are doing a walk-in flu clinic at Westside Medical Centre on Saturday 7th October 2017 between 8am and 1.45pm.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and well being whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
Our practice is situated on Corporation Street. It is only accessible from the gyratory end and the turning into West Leys is before the MorganEst building. It has a car park for patient use that can be accessed at the back of the building, via West Leys. Our practice is on the left-hand side of the building if you enter from Corporation Street, on the right hand if you enter from the car park. We occupy the ground and first floor of the building.

GP Training Practice
This practice has been accredited to train doctors intending to become general practitioners. Sometimes the doctor may wish to video record his or her consultations, and in this case your permission will always be requested beforehand.
Further information about training in this practice is available from reception.
Westside Patient Group (PPG)
We do have a Patient Participation Group (PPG) at the surgery but are always looking to welcome new members. We have a noticeboard at the surgery where there is more information regarding this group on it.
We hold a meeting at the surgery one evening every 2 months to discuss any issues members would like to raise with the surgery and Westside staff members also attend to answer these issues and to inform the group of any changes or improvements within the surgery. If you would like to participate in this group, please contact the surgery and leave your details.
Please find below a copy of our PPG Patient Survey - If yould like to complete this and pass to a receptionist at the surgery we would be most grateful.
