Coronavirus (COVID-19): what you need to do
Stay at home
You should only leave the house for one of four reasons:
- Shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible.
- One form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your household.
- Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.
- Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home.
Advice for people with severe health conditions
This week NHS services will be contacting people with a range of severe health conditions urging them to self-isolate for 12 weeks. We have also contacted all local patients with a generic message following the prime ministers advice yesterday (23 March). Please don’t panic if you have received the text and don’t have a severe health condition. Health advice will be confirmed by letter to those identified this week. There is no need to contact your GP about the message.

All telephone calls in and out of this practice are recorded for safety and training
Recordings are securely stored for 5 (five) years.
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.
