OUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM CURRENTLY HAS A MAJOR FAULT - we thank you for your patience while this is being rectified, and apologise for the frustration that this is causing many of our patients. Please also note that we are completely inundated with calls currently, with the highest call volumes we have ever known (even with the telephone system fault). Please do not take out your frustrations on the practice team, who are doing their utmost to support our patients despite the current technical difficulties.
Helen Wallis, our senior practice nurse, will be retiring from nursing at the end of March, having worked at Beauchamp House since August 1975. Helen's many years of expertise and support for the practice will be missed by both the surgery team and her many patients. We all wish Helen a very happy retirement from nursing.
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.

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.
