Welcome to The Beacon Health Group
The Partnership of Drs McAllister, Plate, Strickland & Dollery
The Beacon Health Group Partnership operates over three sites, Danbury Medical Centre based in Danbury, Mountbatten House Surgery based in North Springfield and Moulsham Lodge Surgery based in central Chelmsford.
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 purpose built Minor Surgery Suite based at Danbury). We provide Friday extended morning appointments between 7.00am-8.00am and Monday and Wednesday evening appointments between 6.30pm-8.00pm. Patients now have the flexibility to choose the location they wish to visit.
The GP surgery team is made up of a range of healthcare professionals with the expertise to help you with your health needs. Often the perception is that patients have to be treated by a doctor; however this is not always the case as doctors are supported by a specialist team of nurses, healthcare assistants, clinical pharmacists, advanced nurse practitioners, physicians associates and emergency care practitioners (ECPs).
With our expanded team you do not need to ring the practice at 8am to make an appointment. If you have an urgent problem as long as you ring the practice before 12 noon we should be able to accommodate your request. If you need a routine appointment for your long term conditions review or medication review please call the practice after 10am. If you are requesting home visit please call before 11am.
Please be aware the next CCG Shutdown date is Wednesday 11th December 2019 from 12.30pm.
The Mid-Essex CCG will be providing out of hours care for our patients from 12:30 until 18:30 and our telephone lines will be diverted to the care provider during this time.
In the case of urgent need whilst the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor. Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
Hours will resume as normal on Thursday 12th December 2019.
All practices in Mid-Essex will be closed from 12:30 on the dates below.
