Wimpole Road Surgery

52 Wimpole Rd, Colchester CO1 2DL, UK – 01206 794794

Found this surgery to be very good! The Receptionists are very friendly and welcoming and take time with patients. The doctors and nursing staff listen to the ailments which are troubling you and recommend different options. Have had many health problems and these have been treated well and involved specialist treatments. The one doctor I found condescending and rude was a female elder doctor who has thankfully now left. Wonderful place and the fact you can book appointments and prescriptions online makes life easier.

North Hill Surgery Dr Baldwin & Partners

18 North Hill, Colchester CO1 1DZ, UK – 01206 578070

While some of my friends and family find it difficult to find a doctor willing to listen to them and to suggest more than taking paracetamol, I found here one of the best GPs I have ever talked to. Dr. Claire Cooper always pays attention, takes one's worries seriously, listens carefully and sent me for future medical investigations every time it was the case. I think she does a brilliant job and I am happy that there are still people like her in the NHS.

University Health Centre

University of Essex, Wivenhoe Park, Colchester CO4 3SQ, UK – 01206 794484

All of those 5 stars go to Dr Michele Wall. The BEST GP I have ever met. I graduated last year, but during my time at university I struggled with a lot of mental health issues. They are still ongoing and I honestly wish I could have taken Dr Wall with me.. I've had countless GPs snub me or misdiagnose me or not take me seriously despite my obvious distress. Dr Wall never did that. She convinced me to try medication and asked me to come back every two weeks to make sure I was doing alright. She sat with me for up to an hour sometimes and just let me talk through everything going on in my head. And she not only understood on a personal level, but she was very knowledgeable about mental and psychological health issues. I felt totally at ease to express myself and completely in control of my own treatment.. Cheers Dr Wall, you deserve a medal :)

The reception staff are generally quite helpful, and the medical staff are excellent - professional, friendly and always willing to go the extra mile. I think there is some truth in some of the other reviews regarding the booking system etc, but I truly believe that's down to the immense pressure the NHS is under at the moment - and the fact that this single health centre has had to have a patient list of almost 13,000.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.
