We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Proposed Merger of Beechdale Surgery and Boulevard Medical Centre
As you know, the Boulevard Medical Centre was closed by the Care Quality Commission in July 2019 and its service users were temporarily moved to our premises on Beechdale Road which is hosted by the Beechdale Centre. Both the practices as well as the RHR centre, are run under a new management led by Dr Chaitra Hodegere, JRB Healthcare from September 2019. You might have noticed an increase in the availability of clinical input by now.
There will be a significant number of improvements in the next 6 months as soon as we make this practice compliant with regulators and safe for our patients. We would appreciate your support with making your surgery an 'Outstanding Practice'.
The long-term solution for both the practices is to make this arrangement formal and merge the two practices/contracts with NHS England. This will not adversely affect you or change the current arrangements for either of the practices. You will continue to avail all the NHS services you need from us in the future. If you have any concerns about the merger, please ask to speak to one of our management team.
Dr Chaitra Hodegere, Senior Partner
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.

Flu Vaccination Clinics
Influenza (Flu) is an acute viral respiratory infection which can be spread quickly from person to person.
Symptoms include fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, extreme fatigue, a dry cough, sore throat and stuffy nose; most of us will recover within a week but occasionally it can cause severe illness or even death in people at high risk. Vaccination is the most effective way to prevent influenza; therefore patients who are considered to be at greater risk are offered a free vaccination.
If you are a registered patient at JRB Healthcare and are eligible for a flu vaccination, you should shortly be receiving an invite to attend one of our clinics.
Please note, the vaccine for children is delivered out to practices on specific dates and we will notify you when the vaccine is available.
You are eligible for a flu vaccination if you are
- Are 65 years of age or older
- Aged 6 months to 64 years and are in an ‘at risk’ group, i.e. have a long term condition such as Asthma and other chronic respiratory diseases, Diabetes, Chronic Heart Disease, Renal Disease, Liver Disease or Immunosuppression.
- Are pregnant
- Are residing in a long stay residential or care home.
- Receive a carer’s allowance, or are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill.
If you believe you are eligible for a vaccination but do not receive an invite, please contact the practice. We are holding clinics most days at our two centres.

Partners in Care

This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that the patient needs and what the practice are offering, are always heading in the same direction.
All entrances to our practices have activated doors, enabling easy wheelchair access over level ground
There are occasions when patients need to be assessed by a Doctor/Nurse which might involve intimate examinations.
Our practice is committed to putting patients at ease whenever possible and if you wish for a chaperone to be present during your examination, please do not hesitate to ask.
Occasionally the practice will close in the afternoon from 12.00 for staff training and updates - the following dates have been allocated for this to take place:
Tuesday 8 October, 2019
Tuesday 12 November, 2019
