Mid Essex CCG require all clinical staff within the Essex Locality to attend a meeting on the afternoon of Thursday 19th May 2022. The practice will be closed from 12.00pm for the remainder of the day.

Unfortunately, our Doctorlink service will be ending soon. Until a replacement service is in place please use the NHS App for medication ordering.

CONTACT DETAILS - IF YOU USE A MOBILE PHONE PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR NUMBER IS UP TO DATE. THIS WILL ENABLE US TO TEXT YOU WITH A LINK TO BOOK SOME APPOINTMENTS. THIS WILL AVOID UNNECESSARY CALLS TO OR FROM THE PRACTICE. 

You may have seen the recent campaign to stop abuse towards NHS staff, the video above has been widely shared across social media recently. I am afraid to say these examples are not rare, unfortunately we hear these kind of comments everyday. This video highlights just a small example of the language and aggression our staff experience every time they come to work. 
FACE MASKS-26th January 2022 - Following changes to guidelines we ask that all patients continue to wear masks when in the practice.
Are you concerned about domestic abuse during this time? Call 0330 3337 444 or access help here when it is safe to do so www.essexcompass.org.uk
We have changed GP appointments to initial telephone consultations, the GP will book face to face appointments if clinically necessary and safe to do so.
We are also to offer a video consultation if needed.
Please do not come to the surgery if you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath.
Please follow the CORONAVIRUS isolation guidance on the NHS website.
We have awarded a GOLD Pride in Practice award by the LGBT foundation in recognition of the changes we have made to policies and practice within the surgery. Please check out our LGBT+ section using the link below to view some of our policies and support that is available.
