Halstead Link was established in 1989 to foster links between the surgery and the community in Halstead and the surrounding villages. Regular meetings are held in the surgery and details can be obtained from the reception desk. Open meetings are held twice a year, with speakers on topics of medical interest.
Over the years a considerable amount of money and equipment has been donated by individuals and organisations. This has enabled us to provide a wider range of services to our patients. We are very grateful for this generous support.
In the future we would like to see Link as the focus for discussion on what services we should be purchasing for the benfit of you, the patient.
The local community benefits from its own hospital, originally built in 1884 but extensively developed and rebuilt in recent years. There are inpatient beds, respite care beds and outpatient facilities. A number of the other services, such as physiotherapy and X-ray, are run from the hospital. The doctors are able to admit patients when necessary.
