We are a local doctor’s practice situated in the heart of South Ockendon located next to Tesco’s in Derry Avenue, Derwent Parade. We offer a range of services to our patients and this could be from seeing the doctors or Nurse, for patients to have their prescriptions sent direct to the pharmacies of their choice.
Our aim is to offer all patients a friendly service within our practice; all of our staff is highly trained in their chosen field.
We have no parking facilities at the front of the practice but just past the Post Office Sorting office there is a Car Park in which you can park all day for Free, we have disabled bays in Derry Avenue.
We look forward to seeing you as a patient or as a new patient looking to register with us please feel free to come and see for yourselves or call us.

Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person. For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.
Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people.
Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.
The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.
The practice has been designed to help accommodate disable patients we have wide spaced corridors and a disabled toilet on the ground floor, a spacious waiting room and there are parking facilities outside to the front of the surgery.
The practice does not accept responsibility for any damage to vehicles parked at the surgery. Owners park entirely at their own risk.
The local Hospitals are under immense pressure to effectively manage unplanned admissions and we are working in Partnership with the acute Trusts to ensure that patients receive the most appropriate care at all times to avoid such unnecessary admissions.
We have Doctors available Monday to Friday (8.00a.m. - 6.30p.m) and SEEDS cover outside surgery hours.
If you are unsure of the urgency of your illness please telephone the Surgery and the Doctor can advise you if an emergency appointment, home visit or an ambulance is the most appropriate course of action.
PLEASE TRY TO AVOID ANY UNNECESSARY CALLS TO THE AMBULANCE SERVICE
