Welcome to The Avenue Medical Practice, Greenhill
The Practice had been well established in Greenhill for a number of years before it was transferred to a purpose built building on Reney Avenue in 1989.
The Practice Team offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics for chronic diseases. We aim to allow ample time for listening, explanation and advice, so as to promote the better health of each patient in our care.
The promotion of a “healthy lifestyle” is an important part of all consultations and educational literature is given to patients whenever appropriate. We have notice boards in the waiting rooms, on which we display health promotion posters on different topics.
‘Think Pharmacy First’ They offer more than you think, and no appointment is needed
You will notice we are starting to promote other alternative services in the practice to direct patients to the right service as quickly as possible and to reserve the GP appointments for those with the greatest medical need.
Pharmacies are now offering a free at the point of access consulatation service for minor conditions including sore throats, hayfever, conjuctivitis across Sheffield. Locally you can go to see them 6 days a week, without an appointment. The Pharmacy will take you into a private room for a consultation, and if after that examination, medication is needed, then this will be free if you are eligible for free prescriptions.

Practice Learning Initiatives
Our next Practice Learning Initiative's are provided by the CCG (NHS) to allow GP staff to attend arranged learning session. All GP's and nurses have to undertake training every year in order to remain registered and so we understand patients frustration at our closure but these sessions are vital to ensure all staff are kept up-to-date. During the hours we are closed, the out-of-hours service is delivered meaning our patients still have access to a GP if required urgently.
The surgery will be closed from 1pm - 6.30pm on the following dates :
Tuesday 1st May 2018
Wednesday 6th June 2018
