Welcome to Brook Medical Centre

The doctors and staff at Brook Medical Centre in Stoke-On-Trent are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.

Our Mission Statement

To Be The Best

We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. 


Christmas Memory Tree

We invite you to hang an Angel or a Star on our Christmas Memory Trees, from 3rd December onwards, to celebrate the life of a loved one. There will be trees in the Waiting Rooms at the Bradeley site and at the Smallthorne site.

Our aim is to raise funds for local charities so we are requesting a minimum donation of 50p per star or angel, which you can get from Reception. Additional donations are welcome.

Donations will be split between the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice, and the local Admiral Nurses who work with Dementia UK.

The tree at Bradeley is sponsored by Proctor’s Nursery, Brown Edge. Card has been donated by Office Services, Crewe.

Fill-a-Sock for the Homeless

This Christmas staff at Brook Medical Centre are taking part in this Appeal to support an initiative set up by the Help for the Homeless group in Stoke-on-Trent.

This scheme has been reported in the Sentinel. The organiser, Gemma Iliff, said “You'll need a pair of new adult socks, long ones are best and fill either one or both with the below items. If you are filling both socks please tie together, if only one sock remember to also put the other sock in. Label either male or female.

Suggested items:

  • Toothbrush/toothpaste
  • Roll-on deodorant
  • Comb
  • Gloves
  • Hand warmers
  • Hand gel
  • Sweets
  • Chocolate
  • PLEASE NO MONEY

If anyone is interested, please hand filled socks to Reception by 14th December. They will be handed over to the Organisers to be taken to the Help for the Homeless Centre, Chell Heath.


Prescription Service

Prescriptions can be very complex. For safety reasons and prevention of duplication, ALL prescriptions handed in at Smallthorne will be processed at our Bradeley site, and therefore not available for collection at Smallthorne.

Prescriptions can be:
  • managed by electronic arrangement with your chosen pharmacist if you arrange this with them
  • collected by your pharmacist if you arrange this with them
  • collected from the Bradeley site.
We thank you for your co-operation.

Weekend And Later Appointments

A new programme has been implemented to provide an extended access service for primary care with later and weekend appointments which will be offered at a different location to your usual GP surgery.This is called the Extended Hours Primary Care Services Programme.

Below is a link that provides information on the Extended Hours Primary Care Services Programme.

Telephone Calls

Please note that all telephone calls, both incoming and outgoing, are recorded for training and monitoring purposes.


Named GP

In line with our contractual requirements all of our patients have been allocated a named GP.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What does 'Named GP' mean?

Your named GP will oversee the co-ordination of your care amongst the other health professionals.

Does this mean that my named GP will take 24-hour responsibility for my care?

No. The named GP will not take on 24-hour responsibility for your care, your named GP will purely oversee the care that you receive.

Does this mean that I have the right to see my named GP every time I book an appointment?

No. A patient can express who they would like to see, however this may not always be possible due to appointment availability with that GP.

Can patients still see any GP they wish?

Yes. A patient can continue to see any GP they wish, as they currently do.

If you would like to know who your named GP is then please contact the Practice.
