Complex Dressings

Currently nurses within Amber Valley GP Surgeries see patients who have complex dressing needs, a complex dressing that is for an injury that has not healed, or is unlikely to heal, within 2 weeks.

Derby Community Health Services have set up local dressings clinics for Amber Valley GP Practices. These clinics are staffed with trained nurses who will see patients in 3 local hubs; this will include patients from Crich Medical Practice.

By having these dressing clinics, patients will receive a better level of care and wounds will heal quicker. This will also free up time for our Practice Nurses who are over committed with appointment requests

New Service For Patients

You may be aware that all practices are now required to provide their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides for them. Each patient now has a named GP but this does not prevent you from seeing a GP of your choice.




Please note Crich PPG are looking for new members to join the group - please see detail on how to join in the Patient Group tab below.



Crich Medical Practice

This website is provided to introduce you to our practice. We cover a wide area and in order to be more easily accessible to patients we have branch Surgeries at Holloway and South Wingfield as well as our main surgery at Crich. Branch surgeries are dispensing and patients living in these rural village areas will be able to obtain their prescribed medications from those premises. You may attend whichever of these surgeries is most convenient to your need, however, it helps us to work more efficiently if you can attend the same one wherever possible.

The doctors work in partnership and they all provide general medical care, maternity, contraceptive advice, minor surgery, health promotion and child health surveillance services.

Serious injuries ie suspected fracture, concussion etc should be dealt with at the Accident & Emergency dept at either Calow or The Royal Derby Hospital.   Minor injuries such as cuts, bruises, minor lacerations etc can be seen at either Whitworth or Ripley Hospital. .

Out of Hours

If you require urgent medical assistance, please dial the NHS 111 service, free of charge who will be able to assess you and direct you to the most appropriate point of care for your particular needs.


Would you like to order repeat prescriptions, book or cancel appointments or ask us a simple question – online?  Well now you can, but first you must register for this service.

We will then supply you with a username and first password.
