Grange Park Surgery
We are a GP surgery of 6’700 patients. We have 6 part-time G.P’s and 2 full time G.P’s. We currently have one GP that will visit our care home, Burley Hall on a weekly basis to review our patients. We have under half of our Dementia patients living in sheltered accommodation and care homes. Which means we have managed to continue to care and help keep over half of our patients in their own homes living independently.
