Noticeboard

From Monday 15th June ALL patients attending the Surgery for a pre-booked appointment will be asked to wear a face covering in line with the latest advice.  We cannot supply these but go to the latest news page on the right for hints & tips on making your own.


We are still here for you - if you need to see a doctor or nurse please call and we will offer a phone consultation to discuss and if appropriate we can bring you in to a safe environment.  We have 15 or 30 minute appointment slots where we meet you at the door and take your temperature and ask about your health; you are then directed straight in to a clean room with the Dr or Nurse who will see you and then let you out of a separate exit door so as not to meet the next patient coming in.  The room is then cleaned down in preparation for the next patient attending who goes through the same process.  We do ask you NOT TO COME EARLY OR LATE to allow for cleaning and preparation and do not come in if you do not have an appointment booked by phone.


The whole healthcare family here at Martins Oak would like to say a big THANK YOU to all our lovely patients for your kindness, understanding and outpourings of support for us and all NHS / Care workers in this time of crisis. We really appreciate all your kind words and deeds.

If you have your NHS cards that you received when you registered with your previous GP please bring them in, if you cannot find these, we can supply registration forms.

All new patients are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.

Your Usual Doctor

Following changes in GP services in England, patients are registered with a particular "named" GP in the practice.  Patients can express a preference to see any GP but need to understand that if they want to see a GP urgently, they have to accept whoever is available, unless they choose to wait for a routine non-urgent appointment with their preferred GP.

Guide to GP Services

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.
