Welcome to Richmond Medical Centre
Our vision is to provide high quality care to all our patients and to continually strive to improve our service to the community.
We have approximately 17,500 patients and work from two branches in North Hykeham, one at Moor Lane, known as Moor Lane site, and one on Lincoln Road, known as Village Site. Patients of Richmond Medical Centre may be asked to attend appointments at either site and a range of services is available at both sites.
We are proud to be a training practice and currently host medical students from the University of Nottingham Medical School and the University of Lincoln Medical School.
We also provide training for Foundation Programme doctors. The Foundation Programme is a two-year general post graduate medical training programme which allows doctors to put into practice what they have learnt at medical school. Foundation Year doctors are fully qualifed doctors who are posted in general practice for a period of 4 months at a time to learn about general practice. Dr Vinod is the Clinical Supervisor for the Foundation Year doctors but all our other GPs and clinicians are involved in supporting and supervising the trainee doctors as required.
What is eConsult?
eConsult is free to use for NHS patients. Use eConsult to ask your GP surgery about your health symptoms, conditions or treatment. You can even request things like sick notes and GP letters.
It may not be necessary for you to attend for an appointment. You can submit details about your condition or your administration request and you will receive a response from the practice usually within 24 hours but you will be advised of the timeframe once you have submitted the online form.
In light of Covid-19, we are using remote consultations in order to minimise the risk of infection to patients and staff. We ask that patients do not come to the surgery unless invited to do so by the practice.
All patients requiring a face to face appointment will be triaged using telephone, video, and online consultations. This will usually occur in the morning and face to face appointments with ALL clinical staff will be from 12 noon onwards.
If you wish to make an appointment please use the following methods:
Telephone: 01522 500240
Q Doctor: https://www.qdoctor.io
All other contacts with the surgery must be made by the above methods. Only patients with pre-booked appointments are permitted in the waiting room to reduce the risk of Coronavirus spread and to protect staff and patients.
We have also reduced some of our services so that we can focus on managing patients with Covid-19. We are still able to assess and advise patients remotely about any concerns that they have which are not Covid-19 related.
We suggest all patients register for online access in the current climate. If you're not sure how to do this please ring the surgery after 11am any day and we will advise you and set it up.
We are trying to run our services as close to "normal" as possible. Thank you for your continued support during this time.
*****Routine appointments for smears and checks (such as diabetes, hypertension or other long term illnesses) will be resuming to near normal starting from 6th July 2020. At Richmond Medical Centre we encourage these routine checks to happen during your birthday month to ensure that everyone has them done at least annually. Please ring reception and book for these if you have a long term health condition such as hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, asthma/ COPD or chronic kidney disease *****
