Coronavirus Update

Please note, as the risk of COVID-19 is still at a substantial risk, we ask all patients to take into consideration face coverings and social distancing when in the surgery. Do not attend the Practice unless advised to do so.


Please note that from week commencing 8th August 2022, there were be essential maintenance works being carried out in the Practice car park for approximately 1 week. There may be some disruption so please be advised that if you are attending the Practice, areas of the car park might not be in use and you may need to find alternative parking. 

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but hope that this improves the quality of the car parking area.


It is with sadness that the Practice will bid a farewell to Dr Jan Van den Hoven as he retires from the Practice on 31st May 2022. His last day in the Practice will be 24th May 2022 due to annual leave commitments. Dr Van den Hoven will be greatly missed by all of the staff and patients at Main Street Medical Centre due to his longstanding service to the patients of Bridgeton. I am sure you will join us in wishing Dr Van den Hoven all the very best and a happy and healthy retirement when it comes.


Although face mask coverings are no longer legally required from Monday 18 April, we would encourage patients and service users to wear a face covering when attending the Practice. As COVID-19 is still present in the community, by wearing face coverings in the Practice it helps to prevent spread of the virus to our patients and staff members.
