Welcome to the Fulfen Practice
Merger Update - March 2017: We will become Darwin Medical Practice on 1st April 2017. However, due to our clinical systems not merging until 2nd May 2017 our new website will not become live until then. Patients can continue to use the current website to book appointments, order prescriptions etc. If you have an online account, you will need to re-register after this date; please see the information below.
We aim to provide a high quality service and all our team try and do so in a compassionate and caring way. We have a long serving and loyal team of staff which really helps in getting to know you, your family and your needs.
We provide our services from both Burntwood Health Centre at Hudson Drive and Chasetown Medical Centre on Chasetown High Street. Appointments can be booked at either site depending on your preference - our computer systems are linked so staff at both sites have full access to the information they need.
We really value our relationship with our patients and have an active patient group to help us. Details of this can be found via the link on the right hand side of the page. There is a regular newsletter to keep you informed and we update the website regularly to ensure you have the lastest practice news.
As well as the medical service the practices provide, we also have a Minor Illness Service (available at both sites), Stop Smoking and Counselling Services, details of which are under Clinics & Services tab at the top of this page.
We hope we can help you to live a full and active life.
MERGER OF GP PRACTICES - FULFEN AND SPIRES

MERGER UPATE: Online Services - Please Read:
Following the merger of our clinical systems on 2nd May 2017 your current online account will be cancelled. You will need to visit one of the surgeries after this date to register and request a new access PIN. Please note, you will need two forms of ID to register, including one photo ID and another proof of address. You can request your access PIN at the time of registration. If you need a copy of your access PIN or you lose it, you will need to produce your ID again at that time. Online access is not given to parents, but patients aged 16 or over can register for an account.
Up until the above date, if you already have your Access ID form from the surgery please click on the "Order Repeat Prescription" box below to use on-line appointments and prescriptions. The first time you access the site you will need to register (click on link below).
Unfortunately it is NOT possible to book appointments with the Practice Nurses on-line. See our Emis Access User Guide for further information.
You can, however, book to see our Nurse Practitioners but for specific conditions only - please see details under the Practice Staff tab or check with reception prior to booking.

Parking at Burntwood Health Centre
We understand that parking at the Health Centre can be difficult at times but we would like to remind all patients to please be considerate when parking. Patients are welcome to use the car park attached to the Health Centre but are not entitiled to park in the spaces directly behind the shops at the back of the Health Centre car park. These spaces are for the use of the residents of the flats above the shops only. There are now notices displayed about parking restrictions and fine penalties regarding the Swan Island shopping centre car park. If you park on Hudson Drive please ensure that you do not block any driveways.
Your continued help with this matter is much appreciated
As well as a source of information about our Practice, we hope you use the website as a useful resource with links to other websites for health related information.
Please see the link for 'Latest News' to keep updated with the changes happening at the practice.
