Practice History

This practice has had a medical centre at Devonshire Green for over 100 years. It has always been a practice of doctors who are committed to providing medical services to vulnerable people in and near the city centre (including those with mental illness, alcohol or substance misuse problems, people who are homeless, for ethnice minorities, etc) as well as the wider population.

Devonshire Green Medical Centre (opened in 1988) on Devonshire Street is purpose-built to be a practice and has facilities for disabled patients, including ground floor disabled access and parking.


Hanover Medical Centre in William Street, Broomhall is also purpose-built for providing care to our patients. The building was extensively refurbished and extended in 1993 to enable us to provide better accomodations for our staff and patients.

Further, we are able to accomodate attached health visitors, district nurses and ‘the Hanover Project’ – which became the Homeless Assessment and Support Service (HASS). Our practice was instrumental in initiating this service (which was awarded Department of Health Beacon status in 2000) to provide holistic care to the city centre’s homeless population.
