Why not give us your email address and join the Patient Reference Group?
If you don’t want to attend our meetings, you can always join us as a “virtual member”, which means we will email you from time to time for your opinion on different matters.
Please see our website for more details (www.stmaryshealthcentre.co.uk).
CONTACT YOUR PRACTICE
The secure messaging service allows you to send messages to the practice for general enquiries such as opening times or flu vaccination reminders. Messages are handled by reception staff during working hours, and the service is best used for queries that require a non-urgent non-clinical reply.
If you have an urgent query, please telephone the practice on 01772 214800 or contact the emergency services if necessary.
Patient Access will also contain links to www.Patient.co.uk, a trusted comprehensive source of GP-authored health information leaflets for patients.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO USE THIS SERVICE, PLEASE ASK AT RECEPTION AND WE WILL GIVE YOU A SHEET CONTAINING THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO REGISTER.
