From 1pm on Monday 4th July 2022, Millbarn Medical Centre and The Simpson Centre will both be based at the new Beaconsfield Medical Centre. The Simpson Centre’s Branch surgery, The Penn Surgery is not relocating and will continue to be based at Elm Road in Penn.
Why are Millbarn Medical Centre and Simpson Centre relocating?
|BIGGER AND BETTER FACILITIES
|FUTURE PROOF LOCAL HEALTHCARE
|– Increased number of consulting rooms
– Larger car park and improved accessibility
– Community care staff and medical staff will be in the same building – meaning more holistic care
|– As the population grows, we need increased space to accommodate more patients.
– Additionally, the new premises will be able to support any additional or new services needed by the local community.
What does this mean for patients?
Whilst Millbarn Medical Centre and the Simpson Centre will be based in the same building, they will remain separate entities, so as a patient, you’ll still be registered with your existing practice. This means there is no change to the way you book your appointments, you’ll just need to travel to a different location to attend your appointment.
- Improved services
Moving to the new Beaconsfield Medical Centre will mean improved services for patients. An example of one of these services is the Community ENT Service. Millbarn GP, Marco Calandrini said “We are excited moving into this purpose built medical facility so that the Community ENT can expand its scope within two modern bespoke ENT suites which have been designed to enable efficient review of our patients within this service. The FedBucks ENT clinic is very well regarded enabling less complex ENT symptoms to be dealt within the community thus reducing patient waiting times. We, at Millbarn Medical Centre, are very proud of our role in delivering this to Buckinghamshire and during the building project we ensured that the ENT consulting rooms would be substantially upgraded compared to the current rooms. We look forward to continuing the ENT clinic at our new site of the Beaconsfield Medical Centre.”
- Changes to travel
From 1pm on Monday 4th July 2022 you will need to travel to Beaconsfield Medical Centre for appointments and if you require the GP based pharmacy, we advise you get familiar with the new location prior to any appointments.
You’ll have access to a bigger car park when you visit the new site.
- Public Transport
If you don’t have access to a car, public transport to the new site is available via local buses and the community bus.
There will be a new pharmacy at Beaconsfield Medical Centre which serves both Simpson Centre and Millbarn Medical Centre patients. If you usually get your prescriptions from an alternative pharmacy, you can continue to use this service.
- Visiting Beaconsfield Medical Centre
You’ll need to go to a different area of the building based on whether you are a Millbarn or Simpson Centre patient. When you first enter the building, you should check-in via the check-in screens which will tell you which waiting room to head to. We’ll also have signage around the building to help you navigate where to go, maps available at check-in and reception staff available to help you. When you first visit, we advise allowing extra time to familiarise yourself with Beaconsfield Medical Centre.
