Welcome to Lime Grove Medical Centre        

We are a friendly semi-rural practice with an ethos of aiming to provide high quality care by providing an extensive range of services for our patients both in-house and within the local community.    We are part of the North Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group, working with a group of local practices to ensure that best quality and cost effective services are available in our area.

The practice uses the SystmOne computer system. Chronic disease management is shared between the doctors and nurse practitioners using templates which have been designed for practice use to comply with the requirements of QoF. We maintain robust recall systems for all chronic disease management, vaccinations, and numerous other areas of clinical activity.

Lime Grove Medical Centre was opened in 1993 as a modern, purpose built, Health Centre. The Centre is located on the corner of Lime Grove Walk and New Street, close to the centre of Matlock. Parking is available on the streets around the Medical Centre.

The surgery facilities are all provided on the ground floor level which can easily be accessed by wheelchairs. A disabled toilet is provided adjacent to the waiting room area. The lower ground floor is operated by the Derbyshire Community Health Services and provides facilities like chiropody and speech therapy. 

The Practice is a Safe Haven for the Community who have learning difficulties; they can come into the practice and be welcomed and kept safe.
