Welcome to Queens Medical Centre
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us. You can find a copy of our practice leaflet here: QMC Practice Leaflet.
Open Letter to Patients, colleagues and Other Healthcare Agencies
The staff at Queens Medical Centre are delighted to announce the return of Dr Sinclair in April. Dr Sinclair told us ‘I am looking forward to returning to work and being part of the excellent team at QMC again and to provide the best care for our patients. I would also like to say that I have appreciated all the support I have received from the team and patients’.
We are also excited to be receiving a new full-time partner to the practice, who will be starting in July.
Dr Kalsi and Dr Holman, who continue to provide a high-quality service, understand the importance of continuity of care for their patients. They both recognise that the last months have seen a number of changes and would like to reassure their patients that the return of Dr Sinclair will provide stability. Drs Holman and Kalsi say ‘We value our patients and aim to provide the best service for them with their health at the centre of all that we do. We know that the change in appointment system that we undertook to cope with rising patient demand is proving to be very successful and we now do not have a waiting list for patients to speak to their Dr whereas previously some patients were experiencing many weeks wait to see their Dr. We feel this has to be better for our patients in the long term”.
Sharon Gavin-Jones, our Practice Manager, is always pleased to help patients with any queries they may have.
