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.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PATIENT
Please note that there will be no online appointment availability for the weeks either side of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. There will also be no availability to book a follow up review with your doctor during this period. North East Essex CCG have asked all practices in Colchester and Tendring to do this to help with the demand for healthcare appointments during the Easter period.
Winter is now in full swing and as such we are getting a lot of patients asking for treatment for self limiting conditions like coughs, colds and sore throats. Please follow the link below on information about these common conditions. Please also visit NHS Choices for more information.

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 in April 2017 - exact date to be confirmed.
