Access to health care has changed dramatically due to the COVID 19 pandemic. There are several new ways you can access health advice from the team here at Marsh House Medical Practice
You can now access the E-Consult service via the link further down the home page. This allows you to submit a query online for review by the GP, Nurse or Admin Team who will aim to respond to you within 48 hours.
Telephone appointments are available for booking with the GP and Nursing Team. These can be arranged via reception on 01642 561282.
In some cases, we may ask you to take part in a video consultation with the GP via your smartphone.
If the GP feels you need to be reviewed in person, you will be given instructions on when and how to attend for an appointment at the surgery. In line with recent Government guidance, we are now asking all patients to wear a mask or face covering when you visit the surgery. Please do not attend the surgery unless told to do so by the GP, Nurse or a member of the Administration Team. Please do not attend any appointment if you or a member of your household are displaying symptoms of COVID-19. For further information on COVID-19 symptoms please visit https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19.
Repeat prescriptions are best ordered online via patient access. You can find more information regarding this using the prescriptions and online service links above.
Thank you for your continued support in adhering to the measures we have put in place to keep you and the team safe.
