History, Development and Identity of The Practice
The practice first opened its doors on 1st June 1984. It has developed and continued to grow and is currently responsible for the health care of just over 3,400 patients and is accountable to Hardwick Clinical Commissioning Group.
The practice serves Bolsover and the surrounding local villages, including: Carr Vale, Duckmanton, Hillstown, Palterton and Scarcliffe.
On the 1st July 2016, after a successful joint partnership, the Practice became part of Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust (DCHS).
Bolsover is proud of its castle, standing at the top of the hill, on the main road into Bolsover from Chesterfield (A632) and has developed into a bustling, historic market town. Bolsover is easily accessed for the M1 motorway, being situated mid-way between Junctions 29 and 30 with plans approved for a new Junction 29a on the outskirts of Bolsover.
The practice operates from single storey purpose built premises in 1987. The building was comprehensively re-fitted and upgraded in 2018.
The practice is sited on a former Presbyterian chapel and is built from the original stone. One half of the front and side is still a consecrated grave yard.
