New Surgery: New Name

We have changed the name of our surgery to mark the start of a new chapter in the healthcare of the residents of Hartshill and surrounding area: Hartshill Medical Centre

Car Park 

A reminder that there is a one-way traffic system in place at the surgery.  Entry to the site is via Ashwell Road and exit is via the barrier leading to Hartshill Road, for which you will need a token from reception.  This was part of the Highways plan to reduce the amount of traffic and congestion on Ashwell Road and felt to be a safer option.

 A Change of Face at Hartshill Medical Centre

After 25 years as a GP in Hartshill I have decided to retire at the end of October 2013.  This has not been an easy decision to come to but after a lot of thought now seems to be the right time.  I have had a most enjoyable and satisfying time here and have met many wonderful people who will remain in my memory for ever.

It is my pleasure to introduce Dr Milan Mehta as my successor.

Milan has been working as a locum in the Midlands for some time and many of you will know him already.  He is an excellent and conscientious Doctor and after recently marrying has decided to settle here in Stoke-on-Trent.

With the recent move to new premises and this excellent appointment I am confident the Practice will continue to grow and provide a high quality service in the future.

Best wishes to you all

Dr Andrew Dent
