Welcome to Delapre Medical Centre & Whitefields Surgery
The practice is an old established town practice, originally based in the centre of town with a small branch surgery in Delapre. The practice moved to a purpose built centre in Delapre in January 1987. Two small extensions, the first in 1992 and the latest in 1997; together with other internal alterations have been carried out over the years, to produce our present accommodation. There is disabled access to the ground and lower ground floors.
The practice has eight consulting rooms on two levels and three well equipped treatment rooms and a nurse consulting room over three levels, for use by the partners, locum GP’s and medical students, practice nurses, health visitors, district nurses and other visiting staff, which include the midwife, counsellors and a CPN.
The reception area is the nerve centre of the practice, where all patient requests for help and medication are dealt with by members of our practice team. There is also accommodation for the practice manager, secretarial / admin team, IT administrator, clinical audit officer and notes summariser. A retail chemist outlet is adjacent to the practice.
Up to Date
On 1st April 2016, the partnership name changed from Dr Hewitt & Partners, to Eleanor Cross Healthcare. Delapre Medical Centre and Whitefields Surgery will continue to under their current names but as a part of new partnership.
April 2011 saw the merger of Delapre Medical Centre with Whitefields Surgery in Camp Hill. It was at that moment when Dr Walsma, Dr Hunt and Sister Harford ceased being partners and both practices now operate under the name of Dr Hewitt & Partners.
Whitefields Surgery was built in the early 80's and all the clinical rooms are on the ground floor, which make this the perfect location for anybody with limited mobility. There is ample free parking in front of and at the rear of the building.
We are now offered almost all our different services from both sites for all 17,000 of our patients. We only register patients that live within our Practice Area
