Welcome to Queens Medical Centre
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. You can find a copy of our practice leaflet here: QMC Practice Leaflet. Click here for more information about our Surgery.
The NHS is well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases and has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
Check online at gov.uk and at nhs.uk for advice on your travel and contact history and the latest COVID-19 information before attending the practice.
Queens Medical Centre have made some TEMPORARY changes to our booking system and patient access to the surgery.
We have made these changes so that we can preserve the service that we are offering during the Coronavirus outbreak and to keep staff and patients fit and well.
With immediate effect all appointments with GPs will be via telephone in the first instance.
The GP will make an appointment for you to come to the surgery if you need to, otherwise you will be treated over the phone.
If the GP asks you to come to the surgery please note that the front door will be locked and you will be asked to ring the doorbell, this is so that we can control the flow of people through the practice.
During this period we will also accept repeat medication requests over the telephone.
We will keep our patients updated via Faceook and our website – please feel free to share.
Please be assured that we are open as usual and that we are making these temporary changes to protect the health of our patients, staff and doctors.
You can use the website to book appointments and order repeat prescriptions, you will need a log on for this. Please contact reception for more details.

Comments from Patients
"Last Thursday I was told by Sister Clare that I am type 2 diabetic. I was a little 'taken aback' at this and very shocked and tearful.
I am writing to say that she was, at once comforting and explained what would happen next and what I had to change in my life style.
Sister Clare was so understanding, (had tissues at the ready) was not in the least bit critical of my of how I came to be in this position. I am so grateful for her kindness, understanding and good advice.
Thank you Sister Clare.....I'm 'on it', see you next month."
"Thank you for your help today, 30/3/16, especially the very helpful receptionist and GP who called me (sorry, can't remember the name). I'm very grateful for the assistance you gave me when I was away from home and unable to see my own GP."
“Thank you all for looking after me so well!”
“Thank you for your friendly, kind and encouraging approach – it was worth moving back to Barnstaple to have such good care and services again!!”
“I am eternally grateful for your support a few years ago, given professionally and with such warmth and care."
"I have been coming in since August for an ongoing problem and the treatment I have received At Queens Medical Centre has been excellent! The receptionists do a thankless job and I think they are all wonderful, not a lot of people appreciate what they do."
