New Telephone System

From March 2024, we have migrated to a new cloud based telephone service. This will enable us to provide a better service to our patients in the following areas: We do hope that this new service will make communicating with us easier for you, our patients. Thank you *

I joined Woolstone Medical Centre in 2011 and became a partner at the practice in April 2013. Since being here I have set up a coil service in the practice.  

I feel that we should offer good long-term co-ordinated care and I am keen to enlist patients’ opinions and views.  We have a practice participation group, which aims to bring  about change driven by our patients.  I feel it is also important to be aware of local and national changes and as a result attend the neighbourhood four commissioning group.

I teach medical students  and F2 doctors and feel strongly that the practice should aim to have a teaching role to help the next generation of doctors.

Specialist Interests: As well as general practice  Dr Zimmermann has specialist interests in women’s health, contraceptive implants, coils and teaching
