Welcome to The Beacon Health Group
The Partnership of Drs McAllister, Plate, Hunt, Bhima, Frankel & Mrs L Hunt
The Beacon Health Group Partnership operates over two sites. The main site (Danbury Medical Centre) is based in Danbury and the branch site (Mountbatten House Surgery) is based in North Springfield. Across both sites we have 15 GPs, 2 Nurse Practitioners, 6 Practice Nurses and 2 Health Care Assistants providing appointments. Danbury Medical Centre has always been an accredited GP training practice and now we are pleased to receive the endorsement for us to extend this facility over to our Springfield site too. In 2017 we welcome three new GP trainees to our team.
The Beacon Health Group is now able to offer our patients a wider variety of services ranging from chronic disease clinics to minor surgery services (performed within the new purpose built Minor Surgery Suite based at Danbury). We also provide Friday extended morning appointments between 7.00am-8.00am and Monday evening appointments between 6.30pm-8.00pm provided by GPs and Nurses.
Patients now have the flexibility to choose the location they wish to visit and the appointment time they wish to attend. Patients will also have a greater choice of clinician operating from both sites. With our patients at the forefront of every decision made, the Beacon Health Group offers further value to the health of our existing patients an also that of new patients coming to the area.
We would like to apologise to our patients for the current delays in answering your telephone call. We are working with our telephone provider to address and alleviate this problem and we will update you once we are in a position to do so.
BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT
By far the most successful way to book an appointment is for patients to register for online booking, as outlined below.
If you require a routine GP or Nurse appointment, please telephone the practice after 10.00am daily.
If your call is urgent and you need to see a GP on the day, the receptionist will leave your details with the Duty Doctor who will assess and contact you so please ensure telephone availability.
The NHS Accessible Information Standard is a new law to make sure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss are given information they can easily read or understand. Please see the following guidance below:
