The new Park Royal Medical Practice opens!

GP and patient

The new Park Royal Medical Practice has been officially opened to patients and residents on1 March 2018. The exciting new medical practice is a merger between the former Acton Lane Surgery and the Harness Harlesden Practice and is based in the Central Middlesex Hospital.

The Park Royal Medical Practice has additional clinical rooms available which are fully equipped with modern technology and facilities. The practice also has the capacity to develop new medical services that will ensure the needs of patients and residents in both the Brent and neighbouring Ealing area are continually met.

Several patient engagement events took place prior to the opening at both former GP practices. At the events patients provided valuable feedback about what they wanted to see their new practice deliver. Importantly, patients also learnt how they could get involved with shaping future services at the Park Royal Medical Practice both now and in the future.

Stay Well Pharmacy campaign launch

‘Stay Well Pharmacy’ is a new campaign from NHS England which encourages people, especially parents and carers of children under the age of 5, to visit their local pharmacy team first for minor health concerns such as sore throats, coughs, colds, tummy troubles, teething and aches and pains.

Community pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are qualified healthcare professionals, and are the right people to see if you need clinical advice, reassurance, over the counter medicines and even a private consultation room, should it be requested, to help safely manage a range of minor health concerns. The campaign reminds people that local pharmacy teams offer fast and convenient clinical support with no appointment needed.
