Welcome to Dykes Hall Medical Centre
Care – Compassion – Community
At Dykes Hall Medical Centre, we strive to provide high quality accessible care for all, whilst remaining person centred.
We pride ourselves on being a small friendly practice and aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence. Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor aliments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare services.
Both Dykes Hall Medical Centre (Hillsborough) and our Deer Park Branch Surgery (Stannington) have disabled access and on-site parking.
Both sites are attached to an independent pharmacy, with which we have a good established working relationship with.
The practice is registered to provide training to doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals. All training staff are under the supervision of either one of the GP partners, or the advanced nurse practitioner.
