Noticeboard

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.


 

In Times of Bereavement

If Death Occurs At Home

1. Telephone the doctor who will visit to confirm that death has taken place (unless a Community nurse is present who can do this)

2. Contact a funeral director.

3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).

4. Take this to the Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available) for the area in which the death took place. Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later.

5. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased finances (a fee is payable for each copy).

If The Death Occurs In Hospital

1. Contact a funeral director to inform him his services are required.

2. Collect the certificate from the hospital then follow 4 - 5 as above

Note For Cremation

Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required.
