Health provision in South Woodham could probably be described as reasonable, although the pressures on existing facilities are likely to increase, especially with the growth in population due to the new proposed development. It may be difficult to register as a patient with some of the more popular practices. 

south woodham ferrrers clinic

South Woodham Ferrers Clinic is the building in the photograph in white.

Brickfields Surgery is the red brick building to the left of the photograph. Both can be found opposite Asda in the town centre.

The residents of South Woodham are fortunate in that there are dedicated and caring doctors, dentists and indeed veterinary care in the town. Most of the practices are small with 2 to 3 GPs and tend to lack some of the facilities offered by larger practices, for example, a regular well woman clinic or blood testing on the premises.

Home visits are a  rare event indeed although most surgeries advertise some form of provision.  Out of hours or emergencies may be attended by a deputising locum.   It is however, usually possible to obtain an appointment within 24 hours, especially if it can be arranged during the morning or afternoon.

The Community Clinic in Merchant Street, opposite Asda's offers a range of services that can be accessed by GP referral. including blood tests and physiotherapy. Many of these are offered on specific days only. Call 01245 318300, preferably during the afternoon for more information.

Some of the service offered include:

Age Concern - toenail cutting service Handicap Agency
Ante Natal Classes Health Visitors
Baby clinic Hearing Help Essex
Chiropody Orthoptist Community - children only
Citizens Advice Bureau Phlebotomy Clinic for blood tests
Consultant Paediatrician Physiotherapy
Dental Service School Nurses
Eye Clinic - Hospital Outpatient Clinic Surgical Clinic
Family Planning Spectrum - Mental Health Team
Gynaecology & Obstetrics Speech & Language Therapy

 

Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, is the designated NHS hospital for emergencies and surgical treatment that a GP is unable to provide. In common with certain others, it too has been affected by long waiting lists and adverse publicity about patients left on trolleys in corridors because of bed shortages. Parking is a long standing problem at Broomfield. It is sometimes difficult to obtain a parking space and it's expensive.

Basildon Hospital has a better arrangement with free parking is you can return to your car within 45 minutes.

Springfield Medical Centre in Chelmsford offers consultations and treatment under private medical health schemes.

Specific details of health services offered may be added to these pages on request.  Please email.
