Noticeboard

Flu vaccinations for 50-64 year old patients:  We now have a limited stock of vaccines available for patients who are aged from 50 to 64.  If you are in this age group and would like to receive a flu vaccination, please contact the surgery to book an appointment.

Practice announcement:  We are happy to announce that Dr Shruti Rustgi will be joining the practice as GP Partner from 1st September 2020.  Patients previously registered with Dr Okon will be transferred to Dr Rustgi from that date.

IMPORTANT:  If you are asked to attend the surgery for a face to face appointment, please arrive wearing a mask or face covering (i.e. a scarf).  This is only optional for children under the age of 5.  We need to retain our surgical face masks for clinical staff as much as possible, so are grateful for our patients for abiding by this request.

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.

Blood test appointments: 

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

On line booking:  Please note that we have suspended all on-line appointment booking for the time being.  This is because on-line booking does not allow for triage/screening of appointments, so this has been necessary to safeguard both our patients and our staff.  Please accept our apologies for any difficulty this creates.

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.

Home Visits

Doctor's bagVisits are only done when, in the judgement of the clinician, they are justified by clinical need. Patients are responsible for providing transport to the surgery when this is not the case.

Acute visits should be requested as early in the day as possible so that they may be allocated to doctors in the most effective way.
