FOR THE ATTENTION OF ADELAIDE STREET SURGERY PATIENTS:
We are inviting our patients to share their views on a possible move to a new health and wellbeing centre in Plymouth’s West End.
North Road West Medical Centre, Adelaide Surgery and Armada Surgery want to relocate to the planned West End Health and Wellbeing Centre and we are keen to know what patients think to help shape the plans.
Plymouth City Council and NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are working on plans for a new, purpose-built health, care and wellbeing centre in the West End, in the vicinity of Colin Campbell Court.
The centre would include a range of services all under one roof in a convenient location. The new building would not only provide a much-needed modern health and wellbeing facility, it would also help kick-start the regeneration of the area.
Our practice is currently located in outdated premises and moving to a bright, modern and purpose-built facility would help secure our long-term future. We have been struggling with the increasingly complex needs of a growing population and an increased demand for services. Our existing site doesn’t have enough space to accommodate services for rising numbers of patients and we have limited space for office staff.
The engagement period for people to have their say about the proposals runs from 30 July 2021 to Thursday 16 September 2021. You can complete the practice survey here or hard copies are available from the practice. More about the engagement and the proposals are here. Please also see attached PDF document.
Please Do Not Come To the Surgery If You Have Coronavirus Symptoms

COVID-19 is an illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a change is sense of taste or smell
Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
How long to stay at home
- if you have symptoms of coronavirus, you'll need to get a PCR test and if positive, stay at home for 10 days from onset of symptoms or test date (if no symptoms)
- if you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll all need to self isolate for while awaiting the PCR test result. If the test is positive, stay at home for 10 days, unless you yourself develop symptoms, then arrange a PCR test and follow instructions from test and trace
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
