Dr Stephen Straughan is retiring from the practice on 31st March 2018. His patients will automatically transfer to our new GP Partner, Dr Miranda Hill.
Dr Roberts, Dr Bodger, Dr Harper and Dr Heidelberg will continue as normal and patients will be able to continue seeing the GP of their choice.
** Be Aware **
We'd like to inform you of the change you will face should you sign up to any payable online GP services that have recently been advertised on television (e.g. www.pushdoctor.co.uk). This is different to the online access registration service that we offer at Bramblehaies Surgery.
These companies act as a GP practice and offer online GP consultations, prescription services and more.
Should you opt in and register on any of these websites it will trigger a new practice registration with NHS England. This, in turn will de-register/deduct you as a patient at Bramblehaies Surgery.
This will mean that any service (consultation, prescription etc) notes that are recorded will not be transferred to your current patient record at the practice.
Please ensure to check their terms and conditions prior to accepting any agreement.
Let your friends and family know.
Following a global shortage of Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B vaccinations supplies are expected to improve in 2018. Supply will remain constrained due to backlog demand and will initially be available for those at highest immediate risk. Please contact the surgery for further information.
