We welcome a young man to the Patient Coordinator team.  Connor joined us recently and can be found assisting patients at front of house and on the telephones.  Patients have already commented on how nice it is to have a chap greeting them.

Teen Talk

Get help Get answers

At Townhill we realise that young people can find going to the doctors a bit, well, tricky sometimes. That’s why we’ve put in place some easier ways to get the advice or help you need, without the stresses of being seen in the waiting room, or having to make an actual appointment. Hey, your parents don’t even need to be there or be told either. So, whatever you need to talk to us about regarding your wellbeing and health, just get in touch.

Building progress
The dreary waiting room having the old bench seating ripped last!

What a difference.  The new waiting area is vastly improved.  The high ceiling has gone, the exposed brick and flooring has been replaced with a new fresh, clean look.  Just need to fill those blank walls now.

The building works started in November last year.  It has been quite an upheaval for both patients and staff, but we are now very nearly there.  Townhill are planning an official open day on Saturday September 14th.  Save the date.
