Watling Vale Medical Centre
About the Watling Vale Medical Centre
We are a busy Practice consisting of six GPs and two Practice Nurses with district nursing, health visitor and midwife service all of whom work for the benefit of the patients. We provide a choice of personal care with a wide range of medical interests. In line with modern practices, we use a comprehensive computer service which is a key tool in patient care, record keeping, prescribing and preventative medicine.
Our Practice covers: Shenley Church End, Loughton, Shenley Brook End, Crownhill and Shenley Lodge.
From time to time the practice may have some professionals undergoing training i.e. medical students, junior doctors and nurses. You may be asked permission for these professionals to be present during your consultation. You do, of course, have the right to refuse.
