Welcome to Millrise Medical Practice
We are aware that as from the 19th July 2021 the wearing of masks has been delegalized by the Government, with no legal requirement to wear them from that date. As a practice, we have made the decision in light of the current increase in cases to continue with the requirement for patients to wear a mask whilst on our private premises until further notice, unless previously medically exempt. Our staff will also be continuing to wear Personal Protective Equipment whilst treating patients.
This decision has been made due to the recent increase in cases and due to vulnerable cohort of patients we continue to see and deal with in our premises, to protect both patients and our staff. This is in line with current NHS England guidance for hospitals and GP practices.
We hope that patients understand the reasons for continuing with this extra protection for the time being.
Are you aged 50-64 and looking for advice on how to book your #free #flu vaccine? People aged 50 to 64 will be invited later in the season for a vaccination. Please do not contact us to book an appointment at this stage we are prioritising those who are most vulnerable. 💉
****IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING OUR APPOINTMENT SYSTEM DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC*****
Supplying face mask exemption letters to patients
GP Practices are reporting increases in requests from patients for letters of exemption to wearing face masks in public settings.
The Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption.
It should be sufficient for someone to declare that they are eligible for an exemption direct with the person questioning them.
Practices are therefore not required to provide letters of support for those who fall under the list of exemptions, or to those who do not fall under the list of exemptions.
Information about the virus
A coronavirus is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.
Novel coronavirus (2019-nCov) is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.
The practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP.
All patients registered with the parctice now have a named GP, this is a recent NHS requirement which is for practice purposes only and does not affect your right to request an appoitment with the GP of your choice.
The practice does however keep a record of your registered (accountable) GP. If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.
We will continue to offer appointments to our patients in exaly the same way.
Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.
Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
