The main objectives are for creative conservation. The aim is to protect and care for the young trees, to increase the species richness of the grassland and marsh communities and to encourage the reserve’s use as an outdoor classroom by local schools.

I am sure that patients and staff would like to wish Dr Brown a very warm welcome to the practice.  Dr Brown is now the Lead GP and is in charge of the clinical side of the practice, and also working alongside Mel in the administrative and managerial side.

The practice has recently undergone a visit from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).  The report is attached for your perusal  CQC report

The site covers 5.3 hectares and is a mixture of woodland scrub, railway embankment, rough grassland and riverbank. The old railway embankment was donated to the Trust by British Rail. The reclaimed tip and riverside area owned by Ashfield District Council and a small area of grassland owned by Severn Trent Water are managed by the Trust under licence. The site is designated as a Local Nature Reserve.

During the coming months the practice will be taking on a new look with redecorating (please bear with us as we are trying to keep disruption to a bare minimal)

Jacksdale's pit was first sunk in 1874 by James Oakes & Co. Its entrance was sited at Selston Road at an 'exposed' section of the Nottinghamshire coalfield. Pye Hill pit as it was known was actually the amalgamation of three individual pits sunk by different mining companies, Jacksdale's pit was renamed "Pye Hill No 2", No 1 being Selston/Underwood and No 3 at New Selston.[4]

Jacksdale Medical Centre is situated in the heart of Jacksdale village.  Jacksdale is the oldest village within the Selston Parish at the border of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. It has most of the essential services such as the Medical Centre, Dental Surgery, Post Office, Community Centre and shops, providing a variety of daily needs. The pharmacy is situated next door to the surgery.

Several local community groups for adults, children and special interests are shared with Westwood.[10] The Anglican St. Mary's Church, Westwood, which also covers Jacksdale, is a daughter church of St. Helen's Church, Selston.

Find out all about forthcoming events in Jacksdale and Westwood and surrounding areas. If you have an event planned please let us know so we can advertise it on the site.
