Derby Road Health Centre has been a long-standing practice in Lenton and has five GP partners. The doctors are supported by five nurses, two healthcare assistants and phlebotomist who aim to provide the best possible care for patients.
Behind the scenes we have a large administrative team who, together with the managing partner, ensure that the practice runs smoothly.
We are a multiple award wining surgery, not just for clinical services but for staff excellence and use of technology.
Our purpose built premises on Derby Road, accessible via Johnson Road, is located in the Lenton area of Nottingham approximately 20 to 30 minutes walk from Nottingham city centre.
We also have an attached pharmacy on site for filling prescriptions.
The surgery is supported by colleagues from our sister practice Grange Farm Medical Centre in Bilborough. DRHC is also a training practice, for more information see below.
The Surgery is designed to allow for wheelchair access. We have disabled toilets, automatic entrance doors, lift and extra wide doorways where possible for easy access. Should any further help be required when using our facilities please ask at reception, we are always willing to help whenever possible.
As well as accommodating our own clinical team we offer space to NHS services to run clinics such as the Health in Mind team, New Leaf, Physiotherapy, Diabetes Classes, Acupuncture and Pain Relief clinics.

GP Training Practice
The practice has been accredited by the East Midlands Deanery as a GP Training Practice. This means the practice usually has a trainee Doctor (F2 or Registrar) training to specialise in General Practice. Each doctor will remain with us for a period of 4-6 months. You may therefore be offered an appointment with the Registrar or F2.
As part of their training and assessment they may have to video record some of their consultations and you will be asked if you would be happy to take part. At any time you are able to say "no" to being videotaped and this will not prejudice your consultation in any way.
If you are happy to be videotaped the receptionist will ask you to sign a consent form. At the end of your consultation, if you don't wish the tape to be used, you can state this and the tape will be erased. You may also be asked to complete a questionnaire about your consultation which is optional.
