The Practice takes it very seriously if a member of staff is treated in an abusive or violent way. All our staff aim to be polite, helpful, and sensitive to all patients’ individual needs and circumstances. Aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated and will be dealt with appropriately.
All calls are recorded for training and monitoring purposes.
Welcome to Wellspring Medical Practice
This practice was originally established in 1957. We changed our name to Wellspring Medical Practice in 2003 due to growing numbers of doctors and associated staff and to promote part of the practice ethos “above all, look after your heart for it is the wellspring of life…”(From the Bible, Proverbs 4:2).
We are a teaching practice, and as such aims to provide high quality healthcare to its 6,000 patients in the north west of the city. Our doctors, nurses and all our other staff are dedicated to offering a professional service and this surgery website will help us to keep all our patients up to date with news and information about our practice. We will keep it current with any developments or other details that we feel are relevant to you.
