THE PRACTICE OF PARK MEDICAL IS LOCATED IN THE HEALTH CENTRE, GREAT JAMES STREET, IN THE CENTRE OF DERRY CITY.
THERE ARE 6 PARTNERS.
THE PRACTICE HAS A POPULATION OF 8160 PATIENTS.
The geographical area covered by the practice includes the city of Derry and its environs within a ten-mile radius of the practice premises, on the northern side of the border. The practice provides the full range of general medical services including antenatal care, child health surveillance, cervical cytology screening and minor surgery. Patients can be referred to other more specialised services such as chiropody, physiotherapy and speech therapy.
The name of the practice was chosen to reflect our premises' close proximity to the beautiful local amenity, Brooke Park. It was felt that this met the requirements of being identifiable with and by the local community and by the patient population.

Disabled patients are catered for in that all GP treatment rooms and practice nurse rooms are on the ground floor, allowing easier access for wheelchairs. There is a disabled toilet adjacent to the treatment room on the ground floor.
There is a car park adjacent to the health centre and another public car park in nearby William Street.
Patients are requested to use the health centre car park only for the duration of their appointment with the doctor, nurse or other health care professionals based at the centre.
Please do not leave your car in the car park if you are going shopping. This deprives other patients of the opportunity of parking when they have to see the doctor.
Please observe all traffic signs in the car park, particularly the yellow 'Keep Clear Grid'.
All cars are parked at their owners' risk.
Please let the receptionist know if you require an interpreter for your consultation. Every effort will be made to provide an interpreter in the required language.
If you are deaf or hearing impaired, please let the receptionist know if you would like a sign language interpreter to be booked for your consultation, if you wish to be accompanied by our own interpreter.
The practice is interested in the health and well-being of patients who act as carers. If you act as a Carer to an elderly relative, please let the doctor know so that he or she can provide you with, or refer you to, appropriate support, care and/or counselling.
The practice is constantly encouraged by the government and the local Health Board to prescribe as cost effectively as possible. In order to do so the practice is increasingly prescribing generic drugs as alternatives to the more expensive branded drugs. Generic drugs are subject to strict government quality control standards. The doctors would like to reassure all patients that the generic substitution has the same biological properties, efficacy, safety and quality as branded drugs. If there are any difficulties with prescriptions, patients are encouraged to inform the doctor.
