Welcome to Whiteacres Medical Centre
At Whiteacres Medical Centre in Malvern the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
Our Group Practice consists of four GPs, three Assistant GPs, four Practice Nurses, three Phlebotomists, a Health Care Assistant, a Practice Manager, and thirteen secretarial/reception staff. We have six District Nurses, a Midwife, and Health Visitors for Children, who are part of the Primary Health Care Team attached to the Practice.
We are a teaching Practice and have GP Registrars each year. Each Doctor will see any patient registered with the Practice.
Flu vaccination is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications.
Flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own within a week.
However, flu can be more severe in certain people, such as:
•anyone aged 65 and over
•children and adults with an underlying health condition (such as long-term heart or respiratory disease)
•children and adults with weakened immune systems
Anyone in these risk groups is more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as pneumonia (a lung infection), so it's recommended that they have a flu vaccine every year to help protect them.

TEXT MESSAGING SERVICE
We now have a text messaging service for our patients for appointment reminders and invites to campaigns such as NHS Health Checks and flu vaccinations.
If you wish to receive text messages from us please ensure that we have your correct mobile number. If you do not wish to receive text messages from us, please let Reception know and we will opt you out of this service.
In addition to the Practice's normal opening hours and additional Surgery opening times, you can also book an appointment to see a local clinician in the evenings or on a Saturday or Sunday across South Worcestershire. GP Practices are working together to provide extended access appointments to our patients. This means that your extended access appointment might be with a different GP or nurse, or based in a different location or Practice than you are used to, and some of these appointments are telephone only. These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the Surgery during our opening times - when calling please ask for an extended access appointment and our Receptionists will help you to find a convenient appointment.
