Noticeboard

SURGERY CLOSED FOR TRAINING - THURSDAY 28th October 2021 - Please note that the surgery will be closed for staff training from 12.30 pm on Thursday 28th October.  If you require GP support while we are closed, please call NHS 111 who will make an appointment with the out-of-hours provider where necessary.  The surgery will re-open as normal at 8 am on Friday 29th October 2021.

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.

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.

Adult with cystitis symptoms?

If yes, please complete this questionnaire and hand it in with a urine sample (in a labelled, small and closed container) at reception. Please do NOT hand the sample to reception staff but place in the designated receptacle.

New Patient Registration

writingYou may register by presenting your medical card, if you have one, at the reception desk. If you do not have a card you may register by completing the relevant form available from reception. The official NHS registration form now requests considerable detail. You will also require photo ID (driving licence or passport) and proof of address (utility bill or bank statement)

You will then need to make a new-patient appointment with the nurse to record basic medical details for your file. This is important if we are to look after your health needs to the best standard possible.

The Practice has the right to refuse your registration on reasonable grounds, eg if you live outside the Practice Area.

New patients are registered with the practice and not individual GPs. However, you have the right to express a preference for a particular practitioner, or class of practitioner, in general or for a particular condition when you make appointments. We will endeavour to meet such a preference where possible and reasonable.
