Practice Mission Statement
"To maintain and if able, improve the health and wellbeing of those Patients for whom we care"
Seasonal Influenza Vaccination & Covid 19 Booster
UPDATE 12/02/2023: We are still immunising patients eligible for Influenza vaccination. If you are eligible to have the Covid 19 Booster this Autumn Season and did not have it yet please book your appointment through the National Booking Service website below.
Patient self-referring to Physiotherapy Services
Self-referrals can be submitted for a musculoskeletal problem via the Physiotherapy Service website https://providephysiotherapy.org.uk/self-referral/ and will be robustly triaged based on the commissioned physiotherapy service criteria including red flag and general health screening and a validated risk stratification tool. Users will then be directed to appropriate self-management digital resources via the Provide Physiotherapy website prior to being offered an initial assessment appointment.
Patient self-booking for routine blood tests
The acute trust self-booking service (via Swiftqueue) for routine blood tests are accepting bookings for the four mid Essex centres (at Broomfield Hospital, St Michael’s in Braintree, St Peter’s in Maldon and the Chelmsford Central Health Hub). If you choose options other than the Mid Essex Centres there will be a delay in receiving your blood test results.
Community Transport are able to offer free transport to anyone who needs it to access their coronavirus booster vaccination.

Prescriptions and Medication
Patients can drop in their paper requests at the surgery (please use the allocated post box).
We are asking patients to sign up for online services to request their repeat medication. GP's are working to ensure that repeat medications are up dated without any non-essential delay. To ensure that we provide a safe and accessible service we are asking all patients to nominate a pharmacy. You can do this through your usual pharmacy.
We encourage all patients to order their own medicines. Ordering online is the easiest and safest way by the following methods:
- Via your SystmOne Online account (if you don't have an account please phone reception to set it up)
- Download and use the NHS app. https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/the-nhs-app/
- Via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- NHS Electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD) service – patient with stable, regular repeat medicines can receive batches of medication that can be dispensed once a month. Please speak to a member of the dispensary team or to your usual pharmacy to see if you are eligible for this.
If the above are not an option for your please speak to the dispensary or reception for further advice.
