Welcome To The Swineshead Medical Group Practice
If you have just joined the practice, please take time to browse this site and keep the site address for future reference. It has been designed to offer a useful guide to the services we offer.
About The Practice
The Swineshead Medical Group was formed with four partners in 1978 when the Swineshead and Donington practices combined. The practice has steadily grown since that time in terms of the number of patients served and the range of services offered.
Approximately 8,450 patients are served from our purpose-built surgery which opened in the summer of 2005. We dispense medicines to almost 40% of our patients despite the villages of Swineshead and Donington both having a pharmacy.
The practice offers a wide range of services; it became a training practice in 1994, and since then a number of young doctors have undertaken some of their general practice training with us.
The practice is a designated Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.
Our experienced health care team aims to provide a first class service at all times. Our Practice Charter sets out the rights and responsibilities of patients.
The NHS Constitution set outs the pledges the NHS has made to patients and staff.
THE FRIENDS AND FAMILY TEST
The Friends and Family Test is being implemented in all practices across England.
FFT will help practices monitor and improve services through continuous patient feedback.

The surgery is open Monday to Friday from 08.30 - 18.30 and you are able to contact the surgery by telephone during this time.
We offer early morning appointments each Thursday and late evening appointments on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. These should be booked in advance and are generally for those patients who find it difficult to get to the surgery during normal opening hours. Patients will only be allowed access to the building if they have an appointment during this time. The dispensary is not open during these extended hours and there is no telephone access to the surgery during these times.
There will be doctors and nurses on duty throughout most of the day.
