About Morden Hall Medical Centre
The practice is situated on the busy main artery that is Morden Road in South West London. It is directly opposite Morden Hall Park which is a beautiful National Trust site with a café, a garden centre and a farm. Morden Hall Medical Centre only a couple of minutes’ walk from Morden Underground Station on the Northern Line which forms part of the transport and shopping hub with buses and shops. There are plans in progress – for completion by 2024 - to regenerate the whole of Morden Town Centre including a pedestrianised shopping centre, a new station concourse and approximately 2,000 new homes. Wimbledon is a short distance by bus or tram.
Morden Hall Medical Centre is one of the largest practices in the Merton CCG area. It was originally formed from two practices and moved to its current premises— previously a public library—which the then partners (three of whom remain) converted and relocated to in 1994. The practice has recently undergone an extensive amount of refurbishment by way of a long awaited modernisation programme. This has significantly improved the day to day patient experience and the overall working environment for the practice team. Morden Hall Medical Centre is on two floors with a Boots pharmacy on the ground floor located with the main practice facilities which is very convenient for patients. Currently there are community services operating out of a number of the first floor consulting and treatment rooms. There is a large car park at the rear of the building for staff use.
The practice is part of the Merton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and the practice makes sure there is partner and manager attendance when required for every type of CCG meeting. The CCG has supported the development of the Merton federation which is currently involved in developing opportunities for new services and joint working across all member practices principally for local sustainability and excellent patient care close to or at home.
There is a substantial team of doctors, nurses and administrative staff who work closely with local pharmacies, community nursing teams and other support services as well as all the local hospitals to provide seamless care for patients. The practice is well known for providing excellent clinical care and for being at the forefront of healthcare locally. The partners always engage with national and local initiatives designed to benefit patients. They appreciate the importance of remaining flexible in order to meet and master the challenges of the NHS of 2017 whilst keeping patients at the centre of everything they do.
The practice teaches and trains medical students, GP registrars, nurses, midwives, HCAs and physician associates so there are almost always students of one sort or another around the building which makes it a lively place most of the time. The practice is dedicated to teaching and training to ensure there will be doctors and nurses in the area for patients in the future. The partners who are not GP trainers have a special clinical interest or undertake roles external to the practice. The practice also takes part in research trials and is always keen to pilot new services or models of care.
The practice was inspected by the Care Quality Commission in November 2015 and awarded an overall Good rating.
