Welcome to Brook Medical Centre Online

 

Our Mission Statement:

"To help you to be well for the longest time and to preserve your dignity at life’s end

Changes to Brook Medical Centre

We are pleased to report that Dr Oo has returned to work following a long absence.

During his absence we have been investiagting ways to minimise disruption to our services and have decided to join with Park Avenue Medical Centre and operate as one practice on two sites. The partners at both practices have created a new company, The Midland Medical Company Ltd to own and manage the two surgeries. This means that in the future we will be able to offer appointments at both sites and extend our catchment area to include all of the NN3 postcode area. 

Further information will be available as the integration process proceeds.

Care Navigation

Our reception staff are here to help you get the right service for your needs.Please don’t be offended if they ask what the problem is when you call to make an appointment.

The Receptionist / Care Navigator might suggest you see an alternative health care professional:

  • Pharmacies
  • First for Wellbeing
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Sexual Health
  • Talking Therapies

Thank you for helping us to help you.

Data collection

The practice is obliged to allow a collection of patient data for NHS Digital. This will be in the form of patients' NHS numbers. Please see the full notice on the information sharing page (link to the right).

If you wish to opt out of this collection please notify the surgery so that we can record your wishes.

REGISTRATIONS

We are currently accepting requests for registration from individuals and families living in our catchment area (this includes people currently registered elsewhere at other local GP practices).  For further information please telephone us or call in to the Surgery.  Our catchment area is as follows:  NN3 postcode area.

Medical reports, Letters, forms etc.

We have been getting a great many requests for doctors to supply medical reports, letters, forms etc.

Much of this type of work is not covered by the NHS contract and has to be classified as private work and a fee charged. In the past the doctors have tried to complete these requests alongside their NHS work, however as you will be aware the NHS is under greater pressure than ever before and this means that doctors have less time to spare on requests for private work.

In the future the GPs will only be accepting requests for reports, letters and forms that they are obliged to complete as part of the NHS contract, or are directly concerned with a patient's health.

Thank you for your understanding.

 Prescription Charges

The price of an item on a prescription was increased from £8.40 to £8.60 on 1st April 2018. The price of prepayment certificates remains unchanged at £29.10 for 3 months and £104.00 for 12 months which means that if you regularly have 2 items issued you could make a saving by prepaying.

Application forms are available at Reception, pharmacies or you can apply on-line at

Travel Immunisations - Important Information

We have recently had several patients expecting travel vaccinations to be provided at very short notice. The service we provide is not part of NHS contracted services and is provided for our patients convenience only.

For our nurses to be able to provide you with travel advice (based upon current recommendations), check your immunisation history and then administer any necessary vaccinations, they will need to have an initial telephone conversation with you at least six weeks before you intend to travel They will then arrange a further appointment for you/your family for any vaccinations to be given. The six week timescale is needed to ensure that there is sufficient time to complete vaccination schedules and to ensure that you have adequate provide protection before you travel.

If you are travelling at short notice i.e. less than 6 weeks, we will not be able to offer travel vaccinations and you will need to seek advice from a specialist travel clinic.

Please note: we are unable to offer Yellow fever vaccination.
