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.


 

Home Visits

Doctor's bag

If you feel you need a home visit, please phone the reception team on 01424 772263, if possible before 10:30.  We cannot guarantee that it will be your usual GP who visits, as we share the workload of home visits. If you are physically fit to come to the surgery, you should do so, even if it means getting a taxi or a friend or relative to bring you.  Very few children ever need a home visit.  Even children who have a fever or are vomiting can be brought quite safely to the surgery.

Emergencies 

If you think you need an urgent visit during surgery hours, ring the reception team on 01424 772263 and make sure they know you think it is urgent. A doctor may speak to you first, and might decide you should come to the surgery to be seen.

 

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
