Welcome to the North Hill Medical Group
North Hill Medical Group serves part of Colchester town centre and a large rectangular area to the north of the town. We have three surgeries: one in town, one in West Bergholt and one in Nayland. Each surgery is open five days a week and offers a full range of routine services. In this way the practice offers a convenient local service where each surgery team gets to know its patients well. At the same time, by working within a bigger group, we are able to offer a wide range of services. These include a dedicated Same Day team which ensures that patients can get help on the day when needed, and in-house referrals to doctors and nurses with particular expertise in certain areas.
Over the last ten years there has been continued major investment in each of our 3 sites, not only in the premises themselves but in equipment and continued training and development of all our practice staff. In 2005 we became an accredited training practice linked with Cambridge University, providing training for medical students and GP Registrars.
******* PATIENT SURVEY AUTUMN 2014/SPRING 2015 *******
The patient group are pleased to advise you that their annual survey is now open and they would appreciate your feedback. Please select the "Take Our Questionnaire" section at the bottom of this page. Alternatively you can collect a paper copy from the reception area of your normal surgery. It will only take around 5 minutes to complete and will help the patient group work with the surgery to improve how we provide services to you.

SURGERY TRAINING AFTERNOONS
Every few months the practice closes for an afternoon to allow us to undertake training for staff and GPs. This means that, on that day only, all our three surgeries close at 12.30pm instead of 6.30pm. On these afternoons, access to a GP is provided through the Out of Hours Service; you will be automatically directed to them from our usual surgery number.
The next training afternoon is on 15th April 2015
Doctors Cooper, Nagy and Courcha complete their time as GP registrars with us on 6th August. We are delighted to confirm that Doctor Cooper will be joining our permanent staff as a salaried GP from 7th August.
Doctors Kalu & Thayur will be joing us as our new GP registrars on 7th August working with us for the next 12 months.
