Building Work - Limited Parking

Stanford Medical Centre will be undergoing some building work from the 5th of July, 2021. Unfortunately, this means there will be limited parking at the surgery. If you will be attending the practice, please leave plenty of time to find a parking space ahead of your appointment. This may mean parking off site or finding alternate ways of getting here. We are sorry for any inconvenience. 

Thank you for your understanding.

Your Data Matters To Us

Your health records contain a type of data called confidential patient information. This data can be used to help with research and planning.

NHS Digital will never sell your data. There are strict rules about how NHS can use your data. It's only shared securely and safely. Shared data helps the NHS.

Green Impact

This practice is delighted to be signed up to the Green Impact for Health Toolkit and is actively taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint.

The climate emergency is also a health emergency, and health care in the UK contributes 5.4% of the UK's carbon emissions. We need to enhance the health of our current population without compromising the health of future generations, and this means operating within the sustainable boundaries of the planet. Fortunately most of the solutions for the planet also make our health better - for example eating a mainly plant-based diet, engaging in active travel and exercise in nature, avoiding smoking and reducing pollution all enhance our health, and reduce our need for medications, with further benefits to the NHS, your health and the carbon footprint of healthcare.
