Based on 18 ratings for this clinic


We are a flexible, family-friendly NHS doctor’s surgery. We are currently registering new patients and we also provide a walk-in service for minor illnesses and injuries for people who are not registered with our surgery.

We are open 7am-10pm, 365 days of the year. The North Colchester Healthcare Centre is based in the Primary Care Centre on Turner Road, Colchester, next to Colchester General Hospital. There is a regular bus service from the town centre and free parking on site.

PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to attend as a walk-in patient after 8pm, you are advised to telephone the centre to check that we are still open for registrations as, on occasion, the service has to stop registration prior to 10pm due to excessive demand.
