Our reception team are here to help you. Their job is difficult and they often work under considerable pressure. We would appreciate your patience and understanding, and also your constructive comments and suggestions.

Health Visiting and School Nursing Teams

The Health Visiting and School Nursing Teams offer advice and support to children and families. The Health Visiting Team can be contacted on 01494 433112. The School Nursing Team can be contacted on 01494 728317.

Adult Community Healthcare Team

The Adult Community Healthcare Team (ACHT) are part of the Primary Health Care Team. They assess the needs of patients in the home environment. They implement a high standard of

nursing care according to identified needs and refer to other specialist nurses and agencies as appropriate. They also provide health promotion advice, support and teaching to all age groups. The ACHT is not based at Amersham Health Centre but can be contacted on 01494 734724.

Community Midwife

A midwife joins the Primary Health Care Team on rotation. They help to run the antenatal clinic, is in close contact with the hospital maternity unit and visits expectant mothers and those who have just had their baby in their own homes. Newly pregnant women should notify Bucks Maternity Services via a self-registration form. Details can be found under the Clinic / Services Tab - Self Registration for all pregnancies drop down menu.

For any other queries or to contact the midwife, call the surgery to leave a message. Alternatively, call:
01494 734233 Monday to Sunday between 8.30 - 9.30am (not for urgent messages)

Women at 20-plus weeks may phone the labour ward at Stoke Mandeville Hospital on 01296 316103.

Medical Education

In addition to hosting medical students, the practice helps to train future general practitioners by working with “GP registrars”. These doctors already have considerable hospital experience before joining us for one year in preparation for finding their own practices.

The practice also trains Foundation Doctors. A Foundation Year Doctor will have completed one year of general hospital experience after qualifying. They are employed at the practice for four months, closely supported by the General Practitioners.


We appreciate that some patients may feel more comfortable having a chaperone present during an examination by a doctor or nurse. If you would like to have someone else with you during an examination, please tell your doctor or nurse or, if possible, advise the receptionist before your appointment.
