From our surgeries in Decima Street and the Artesian Health Centre, the Bermondsey and Lansdowne Medical Mission provides GP and nursing care to over fifteen thousand inner-city residents. We provide a full range of primary care services, both in-house and in partnership with other providers, and through our excellent clinical teams we have a strong record in the management of long-term conditions.
We have a rich history stretching back to 1984, when the Bermondsey Medical Mission in Grange Road and the Lansdowne Medical Mission in Lansdowne Place joined together as a single surgery in Decima Street. We have expanded considerably since then. Not only have we grown The Decima Street Surgery to nine consulting rooms and two nurse treatment rooms, but in November 2007 we were awarded the tender to offer General Practice services at The Artesian Health Centre, where we operate an additional six consulting rooms and one nurse treatment room.
Most of our staff work on both of these premises, which is easy as they are only 400 meters apart. Also, our IT systems are fully integrated, which means we have access to our patients’ medical records on both sites. Patients are thus able to register and attend either site on any given occasion for routine appointments.
