Welcome to East Bridgford Medical Centre
There are currently four doctors who work regularly at East Bridgford Medical Centre, three partners: Drs Scaffardi(Male),Stewart( Female),and Cope(Male) and Dr Pryor (Female) who together with our staff, provide a comprehensive medical service for East Bridgford and surrounding villages. Patients registered at the medical centre have a named accountable GP who is responsible for their overall care, however you can make an appointment to see any of the doctors within the practice.
Our practice is a training practice for GP registrars. These doctors, who are fully qualified, are usually with us for four to twelve months at a time. Dr Faaiza Abbasi (Female) joined us in December 2016 and Dr Sarah Thomas joined in February 2017.
