Welcome to the Queens Road Medical Practice website
We hope you will find the website as informative as possible, so please feel free to browse and look for the information that best helps you to access the services you need. If you have any feedback, we would be more than pleased to hear from you.
The Practice was formed in 1992 by the amalgamation of the long established Albany and Grange End practices and has been providing ‘Primary Care’ services to the residents and visitors to Guernsey for nearly 30 years. The Practice comprises of 17 Doctors, supported by experienced Nursing and Musculoskeletal Teams and operates from two surgeries, one at Queens Road in St Peter Port and one at Le Longfrie in the parish of St Pierre du Bois (temporarily closed from 3rd April 2020).
We are a team of over 60 people who endeavour to provide an excellent service and a warm welcome!
During the current situation and to minimise the risk of anyone attending the surgeries either gaining or passing on an infection to another attendee we have made a series of changes to our operation.
With effect from Friday 3rd April 2020 anyone with a flu like illness or respiratory tract infection – displaying symptoms including sore throat, fever, cough or shortness of breath will be assessed by a doctor over the telephone and, if necessary, asked to attend the All Island Flu Clinic at The Chest and Heart Centre on the Princess Elizabeth campus.
We have moved the clinic to this location to make it more accessible for patients from the whole Island and to make it as convenient as possible for potential hospital admissions. As a consequence of this move, the Le Longfrie surgery will be closed from 3rd April for at least three months.
As a result of the COVID outbreak, we have had to change to a ‘telephone consultation led’ service – where patients receive a full consultation by one of GP’s over the telephone to ideally ensure patients receive the support and care they need without having to attend the Practice. The charge for a telephone consultation under these exceptional circumstances has been set by The States of Guernsey at £40.00 and we would respectfully ask that you pay this amount when booking the telephone consultation.
A further implication of the COVID19 pandemic has been the withdrawal of our ‘hands on’ Musculoskeletal service as a result of the requirements of physical distancing. At the current time we are providing a telephone-led service specialising in pelvic health (for men and women) and postnatal screening assessments delivered by Sophie Tyrrell. Please call the practice on 01481 724184 to discuss your needs and to arrange a telephone consultation/ assessment.
Please do not attend either surgery if you have any of these symptoms without calling us first on 01481 724184 where we will advise you on the best course of action.
Please do all you can to follow the guidelines and advice you are given as although we fully appreciate there will be a level of inconvenience for people attending a different surgery than they are used to, this will make us all safer and healthier.
