If the answer is yes and you are 18+ come along to the Patient Participation Group's Carer Event.

You can find information on:

Patients on Long Term Opiod Pain Killers
We are working with Mid Essex CCG to highlight patients who are taking long term opioid pain killers. Recent information has shown that long term use of opioid medication may be more detrimental for patient's health than originally thought.

Online booking and with reception - for eligible patients
- if you have an appointment booked with a doctor or practice nurse they will give your flu vaccination at that appointment
If you choose to attend the surgery for your flu jab, you will be vaccinated in a properly equipped consulting room or treatment room by a qualified member of our Nursing or GP Team; who will have access to your medical records and are properly trained for emergencies.
You will also be supporting the Practice and help to ensure that resources are not removed from General Practice.
Please be assured that having your flu vaccination elsewhere does not 'help' the Surgery.
If you cannot make your appointment please do remember to cancel.
All patients who are aged 65 years or over on 31 March 2020 are eligible for a free flu vaccination. Patients under 65 years of age on 31 March 2020 are eligible for a free flu vaccination if they meet certain criteria.
Patients who are carers and pregnant women are also eligible for a free flu vaccination.
You should receive an invitation from the Surgery if you are eligible or you can check on the NHS web site using the following link:
We have received a report that a Mid Essex patient has been targeted by a telephone fraud.
The scam involves the criminal telephoning an elderly patient to claim their practice cannot administer their flu jab. The patient is told they will have to attend a different venue that uses ‘a different type of needle’ for which there is a small charge. The criminal then asks for bank details to take this charge – and removes a large sum from the patient’s account.
Please be aware and where possible mention this to friends and family so they are not taken in by this scam.
We are now offering appointments from 7am on Monday and Wednesday mornings
We have also increased the number of online appointments that are now available and these include Advanced Practitioner, Practice Nurse, Phlebotomist (blood takers) and Health Care Assistants. Please do check to ensure you are booking an appointment with the appropriate clinician (details are on the online appointment booking screen)
