As has been widely reported in the press we are very sorry to say that there was a major incident at Southwell Medical Centre on 20th May in which one of our patients lost their life in the car park.
Our staff did everything they could, paramedics and an air ambulance from QMC were unable to revive the patient.
We send our condolences to the family.

Let us know your Mobile Number and email Address
We are in the process of collecting email addresses and mobile phone numbers for all patients as this can save the NHS money when contacting you..
Please either complete the online form found in the link at the bottom of this page called "text message reminders" or complete the paper form that is available in reception.
Also, try downloading the MJOG app https://www.mjog.com/products/mjog-smart/for-patients/ as it allows you to access more information, services and costs you and us NOTHING to load or use!
You have a named GP!
All patients have a named GP. We have always operated a "usual GP" system as a way of sharing out the administrative workload for all Doctors. Therefore you already have a "usual GP" and this person will be your "named GP" for NHS purposes. As before, you can still see or speak to any Doctor for advice - this is purely a way we divide up workload for administration tasks. If you want to know who your usual GP is - ask any staff member.
