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 (Quality and Outcomes Framework). We maintain robust recall systems for all chronic disease management, vaccinations, and numerous other areas of clinical activity.

This practice is participating in a national surveillance programme that provides continuous monitoring of infections and diseases in the community. The surveillance system is called the Weekly Returns Service (WRS) and it is co-ordinated by the Royal College of General Practitioners Research and Surveillance Centre.
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.
We are a armed forces veteran friendly accredited GP practice. This means that, as part of the health and commitments of the armed forces covenant, we have a dedicated clinician who has specialist knowledge of military related health conditions and veteran specific health services. This is important in helping ex-forces to get the best care and treatment.
The practice has worked hard on, and continues to encourage reduced sedentary behaviour in both patients and staff, increased physical activity in both patients and staff, and we also have partnered with a local physical activity to encourage patients to be more active whist in the surgery to improve their mental and physical health and wellbeing.
