This is an ongoing issue:
You may be aware from national news reporting that there has been a central computer error in calculating cardiovascular risk (using QRISK) and that there may be implications for use of statins.
We are fully aware of this and any data that has needed correction has already been actioned by the practice. If there have been implications for further management including statin usage, the patient will be contacted. Otherwise you should continue the agreed treatment plan.

Welcome to Castle Healthcare Practice
Welcome to Castle Healthcare Practice, we provide primary care services for West Bridgford and the surrounding areas. We hope that you will take your time to browse our website where you will find lots of useful information about the Practice and the services that we offer.
Castle Healthcare Practice is a teaching and training general practice located on Wilford Lane in West Bridgford, Nottingham. We are open 8am until 8pm Monday through to Friday. Our Doctors, Nurses and Administration Team aim to offer the highest standard of patient- centred healthcare.
The Practice has mixture of 11 male and female GPs who all provide pre-bookable appointments, telephone appointments and same day appointments. All same day appointments are dealt with via a telephone triage process and if it is deemed necessary a same day appointment will be booked with an appropriate medical professional.
We offer a range of appointments with our Nursing Team, these are provided by our Nurse Prescribers, Practice Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Phlebotomists. They provide appointments for chronic illnesses such as Diabetes, Asthma, COPD, Heart Failure etc. We are fortunate to be able to work in liaison with specialist Diabetes nurses and Fracture nurses, who come into the Practice and provide services direct to our Patients.
The practice benefits from having other aligned services that work within the Practice; they are services such as Ultrasound, Diabetic retinopathy, teledermatology (diagnosis of dermatology conditions) and Aortic Aneurysm Screening. These are all services that are provided on site, which prevents patients having to travel to secondary care to receive this treatment.
There is also a 100 hour Pharmacy, a physiotherapy service and a coffee shop on site.
The building is fully DDA compliant. The Practice benefits from having a lift which provides access from the car park into the building, we also have ramped access into the main entrance and all of the building is wheelchair accessible.
We have 119 car parking spaces at the practice and have dedicated parking bays for cycles and motor bikes. The Practice has partially funded the Local Link buses within West Bridgford area which regularly pick up and drop off at various locations around West Bridgford, including the surgery.
We are confident our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to the very latest in Healthcare News.
The practice offers easy access for patients with mobility difficulties. The surgery has a ramp at the main entrance and automatic opening doors to the waiting area to allow for wheelchair access. There are designated disabled car parking spaces in the undercroft car park adjacent to the patient lift. There are disabled access toilet facilities with a distress call point.
