Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

The NHS in Milton Keynes and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal. 

The Chief Medical Officer has announced that the country is moving into the ‘Delay’ stage of the response to coronavirus from Friday, 13th March 2020.

The new advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer is as follows:

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

New Patient Registration

The doctors welcome new patients who live within the postcode of MK6

New registrations are completed between 09:30 and 17:00 every day.  Please complete the registration form given to you at reception when you first visit the surgery.  To register you must provide one item of identification to show who you are and one to show where you live.  Each person over 16 must provide individual proof of address. 

If born in the UK we accept passport or UK birth certificate or driver’s license, with a tenancy agreement or council tax letter dated within the last 3 months or bank statement dated within the last 3 months.  If not born in UK we accept passport with a tenancy agreement or council tax letter dated within the last 3 months or bank statement dated within the last 3 months.

All new patients will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and will need to have a 10 minute ‘new patient’ health check with the nurse.  This enables us to take a short history until your medical notes arrive from your previous GP.  Please inform the nurse if you are on repeat medication.

Please contact reception for further information.

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.
