Description

We have a lively, enthusiastic Patient Participation Group (PPG) that meets in person 3 monthly to discuss a range of practice issues. We have a second group that we have recently organised which is a virtual Patient Reference Group, this particular group will communicate online via email or though post and will not be asked to attend meetings. Alternatively, come to our Patient Participation Group, new members are encouraged – please contact the Chairman, Mr Ray Evans by filling in the form below with your query. Both our Queens Park and Honeysuckle Way surgeries have reserved car parking space for our disabled visitors, these are clearly marked.
We have automatic doors for access for wheelchair users and parents with pushchairs. We also provide a hearing loop for the use of the hard of hearing. Please ask our receptionists about this facility.
There are toilets specifically designed for our disabled patients.


Company description
Queens Park Group Practice is one of the longest established medical practices in Bedford, moving into the present health centre in 1969. Although based in Bedford, the practice has patients in surrounding villages (please see map showing practice boundary). We also employ salaried GPs. Languages catered for include English, Punjabi, Urdu, Hindi, Gujarati and Swahili. The practice also has a branch surgery at 8 Honeysuckle Way, off Riverfield Drive, Goldington, Bedford. Any form of violence or abuse, whether physical or verbal against any member of staff or against any person present on our premises is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. We abide by the Department of Health’s Zero Tolerance Policy and we reserve the right to take appropriate action in such circumstances.
Home visits are for housebound patients and those too poorly to attend an appointment at the surgery. Lack of transport is not a reason for requesting a visit. Home visits are at the doctor’s discretion. Please telephone the surgery as early as possible if you need to request a home visit. Prior to visiting the doctor may contact you. You can request a doctor of your choice but we cannot guarantee that you will be visited by the doctor of your choice.
Requests for home visits are allocated by the duty doctor according to the number and clinical nature of the requests and the duties of the doctors on that particular day. The practice employs three Practice Nurses who carry out immunisations, smears, travel vaccinations, ear syringing, dressings, suture removals, and assist with various clinics. For travel vaccinations, see the nurse at last SIX WEEKS prior to departure. They can advise you on treatment of minor ailments and give you health promotion guidance or counselling as later detailed. We also have a Health Care Assistant who can help you with smoking cessation, health checks and if you need your blood pressure taken.

Terrible service, my wife waited for over an hour for her appointment with three young children and ended up leaving without being seen because the children were fed up with waiting. She asked at reception prior to leaving how much longer her appointment would be, she was told she was next then someone else went in before her! They ALWAYS run late, but that was ridiculous. We are leaving this surgery and joining another.
