Changes to Brook Medical Centre

After a period of extensive pre-merger work the partners of both Brook Medical Centre and Park Avenue Medical Centre have  decided that a merger would not be in our mutual best interests and have withdrawn from the integration process.  We will continue to operate independently from our current location.

The partners have decided however to form a limited company, Brook Medical Partnership Limited, to run the surgery. This will not affect our day to day operations or the staffing. You will continue to be able to access our services in the usual way.

Non Prescription Medication

The Goverment has published a list of conditions for which medication will no longer be available on prescription. Full details can be found at this website.

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:  Bellinge, Blackthorn, Ecton Brook, Great Billing,  Lings, Little Billing, Rectory Farm.

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.

Travel Immunisations - Important Information

Due to unforeseen circumstances we are currently unable to offer a Travel Advice & Vaccination Service to our patients, which we have, up until recently, provided for our patients convenience even though it is not part of NHS contracted services.

For more detailed information on how to access your vaccination history and options for vaccinations please go to the Travel Immunisation section under the 'Clinics & Services' tab on the left hand side of this page
