The Island Medical Centre (know locally as the IMC) is a small private medical practice situated in the heart of St Anne, Alderney. The IMC has been providing a high quality, compassionate primary care service to islanders and visitors for many years. We are committed to providing evidence based medical care to our patients and we keep up to date with the latest advances in medical practice.
The facility was purpose built in 2015 on the Le Val site and has two GP consulting rooms and has recently been expanded to offer two Nurse treatment rooms. The Practice is supported by a dedicated reception team, led by our Practice Manager, Mrs Tracy Jean. The Practice is situated in an easily accessible location for all users, at the end of Le Val free carpark.
We welcome both visitors and residents to our practice and have over 2000 registered patients, supported by a team of resident and visiting doctors, offering same day appointments every weekday. Outside of these times (1800-0800) patients are seen at the The Mignot Memorial Hospital.
Since 1975 the States of Guernsey have been responsible for providing a range of health & social care services in Alderney, mainly based at the 22 bedded Mignot Memorial Hospital (MMH). Services on Alderney are provided through a combination of The Committee for Health & Social Care, States of Alderney, and voluntary services.
The Mignot Memorial Hospital (MMH) is the centre for all nursing care, being the only nursing establishment on the island. Medical care within the MMH is provided by General Practitioners from the Islands Medical Centre. The Hospital consists of 22 beds, treatment, outpatient, and digital x-ray facilities. Nursing staff from the hospital also provide care for patients in the community that are unable to attend the hospital, or medical practice, for regular dressings or other nursing procedures. Nursing staff are also required to escort patients on air transfers to the PEH in Guernsey.
Visiting specialists from the Guernsey Medical Specialist Group, and other Health Professionals from The Committee for Health & Social Care, visit Alderney regularly to carry out clinics at MMH, and within the community. It is hoped that the further development of video conferencing equipment facilities will further enhance services provided. Patients who need elective surgery are seen via the secondary healthcare arrangements with the Medical Specialist Group in the same way as Guernsey residents. An air ambulance service is available for patients who need to be transferred urgently to the Princess Elizabeth Hospital.
One of the key benefits of working in a small community Hospital, such as the MMH, is the high level of teamwork between all medical, nursing and support staff. This leads to a real sense of working together with a common aim to provide the best care possible for our patients.
