We are working hard to deliver the vaccine as quickly as possible. We are vaccinating according to the priority groups outlined by the government and clinic dates are set once we have a confirmed delivery date of the vaccine. At present, we are only getting 2 or 3 days advance notice of a delivery. We will contact you when it's the right time for you. Please DO NOT contact the surgery asking about appointments as these calls are blocking the phone lines. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
We are always pleased to welcome new patients, provided you live within our practice area. Please visit our reception where our staff will be pleased to help you with the necessary paperwork. It would be most helpful if you could bring your NHS medical card. Each surgery has both male and female doctors, and you are free to consult with any doctor you wish.
All patients at the Misbourne and St Giles surgeries have a named, accountable GP who is responsible for coordinating their care. Your named Doctor is allocated to you by the Practice.
Irrespective of who your named GP is, you can still book appointments with a Doctor of your choosing. Whilst you are entitled to consult any of the GPs in the Practice, we would encourage you to remain under the care of your named GP for continuity.
If you are would like to know who your named accountable GP is, please ask a member of the Reception team.
Please help us to keep your personal details up to date by notifying us immediately of any changes e.g. change of name, address, telephone number etc. If you move outside our practice area, you should register with a new doctor as soon as possible so that your medical records can be sent on.
Please note the facility to register as a new patient at the Practice is not yet available.
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice as a temporary resident.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
