Welcome to Bridge Medical Centre
Our aim is to provide high quality, safe, effective and compassionate care to all out patients. To work in partnership with them, their families and carers, ensuring that they are involved in all decision making regarding their care and treatment thus maintaining maximum levels of independence, choice and control.
We provide NHS medical services for approximately 10,000 patients. Our team is made up of seven doctors, four nurses, and two health care assistants. We are ably supported by two managers, three secretarial staff and ten admin staff. In addition we have other community health practioners at the practice supporting our patients, including our Midwife, Health visitor, Mental health liaison practioner, Time to talk counsellors, Carers support worker and Fracture liaison team.
We operate out of a purpose built (December 1990) doctors surgery in Three Bridges which is located just outside Crawley Town centre. We are within walking distance of Three Bridges train Station, and on a mainline bus route. In addition we have ample parking for our patients.
Our disabled patients have full access to our building, there is an allocated disabled parking space with dropped kerbs for easy access. We have fully automated doors to the main reception area and our corridors are wide enough to accommodate wheelchair access. We are currently in the process of a refurbishment program in upgrading our facilities in line with current legislation.
