Noticeboard

SURGERY CLOSED FROM 12:30 ON THURSDAY 19TH MAY 2022:  The surgery will be closed from 12.30 on Thursday 19th May for staff training.  If you require medical support while we are closed please call NHS 111.  We re-open at 8 am on Friday 20th May.

PATIENT REGISTRATIONS: We are accepting patients onto our list - please check with Reception to see if you are within our catchment area for new registrations.  Please note that if you move away from our practice area you will need to register with a local GP.  We do not keep patients on the list who have moved away.

NEW TELEPHONE SYSTEM:  We are pleased to inform you that the practice will be implementing a new telephone system on Thursday 2nd September.  Our new system will introduce significant benefits for our patients:  no more engaged tones, knowing where you are in the telephone queue, along with the ability to request a 'queue busting' call back.  Whilst we are confident that the implementation will be a fairly smooth process, please bear with the team while we get used to working with it.  Thank you for your support with this.

FACE COVERINGS:  In order to protect our patients and staff, we respectfully ask that you continue to wear your face coverings if you attend the surgery for any reason.  We thank you for your support in this matter.

My Care Record:  Privacy Notice – Coronavirus (Covid-19) Response Addendum.  This notice describes how we may use your information to protect you and others during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, and it supplements our main Privacy Notice (Fair Processing Notice).  More information available here.

These can now be booked online by clicking on the link - www.mse.nhs.uk/blood-tests

Repeat Prescriptions:  From 1st April 2020 you will no longer be able to order your repeat prescriptions from your local pharmacy or via another third party.  Requests for repeat medication should be made direct to the surgery via any of the following options:

Please do speak to a member of the reception team if you have any queries regarding this change.
