Mutual Respect

We endeavour to treat all our patients with dignity, respect and honesty. Everyone at Upwell Street Surgery is committed to the delivery of an excellent service.  We encourage patients to highlight any discrepancies and to offer the same commitment in return.


Holistic Care

We treat patients and illnesses. This means that we are equally interested in the physical, psychological and social aspects of your individual care.


Continuity of Care

Building and maintaining a strong relationship between doctors, health professionals, and patients is essential to the way we work. This is especially so in the management of ongoing problems or long-term illness and we will endeavour to accommodate patients who wish to see the same GP.

For patients who wish to see a particular health care professional we will always try to accommodate this.  However, if they are unavailable we would encourage patients to see any of the doctors or nurses available in the practice at the time.  


Learning and Training

We are a training practice and are committed to the training of our doctors and nurses all of whom are closely supervised. We believe in “life-long learning” and all the health professionals here, undergo an annual appraisal where the goals of the individual, teams and practice are discussed and agreement reached on the way forward.  Regular reviews act as a way of reinforcing effective performance, highlight areas for improvement and recognise developing strengths

We also recognise the benefit of supported learning for our patients and families in enhancing your ability to manage and deal with both ‘self-limiting’ and long-term illnesses'.
