Welcome to Walnut Tree Health Centre On-line
Here we present all our patients with up to date news and information about our practice. We will keep it current with any developments or other details that we feel are relevant to you.
General medical advice is available 24 hours a day by calling 111.
Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site.
We also wish to inform all patients we are a GP and undergraduate medical student Training Practice. You will usually find a trainee GP as part of our team and students from the university who visit one morning a week. Students and trainees are supervised by our GP Trainer, Dr Triona Withanage.
If you have any questions about any of the training/trainees please ask to speak to the Practice Manager, Diane Mitchell.
We also have an active Patient Participation Group who meet every 6 to 8 weeks to share information and experiences with members of the practice. The Group is seeking new members to help gain a more diverse representation of our patients. If you feel you would like to join this group and help with practice issues, understand more about how GP practices work please contact the Practice Manager, Diane Mitchell.
The practice will be closed on Wednesday 24th February 2016 for protected learning time from 12 noon until 5.00pm.
If you need urgent medical help call 111 or if it is life threatening, such as chest pain, call 999.
New Practice Pharmacist
We are the first practice in Milton Keynes to employ a Pharmacist to assist GPs with their workload and to also improve the service we provide to patients with regard to medication management. If you have a medication query, have recently been discharged from hospital, require repeat medication then Geraldine is likely to be involved with your care and may contact you. She will also be reviewing patient medication and asking patients to attend for reviews, blood tests or other procedures.

Friends and Family Test
NHS Midlands and East want you to have the best possible experience of care. The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback, so we can continually review our service.
It is based on the simple question:
“How likely are you to recommend our service to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?”
Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your experience – what you like and what you think we could improve. Ultimately, you’re helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.
If you wish to leave your comments anonymously, then please do so. If you do leave your contact details then we might get in touch, to talk to you about your feedback so we can better understand your views.
