Our systems are being upgraded on 08/04/20. Can you please avoid contacting the surgery between 12:00 and 14:00 as we will not have access to any of our systems during this period.
If you have a telephone consultation booked, can you please note that due to the high demand at this time our GP’s are only able to call once and discuss one issue. Please keep your phone available as they can call at any time. Please can you help us so that we have more resources to help others. Thank you.
You can message the practice through your online SystmOne accounts. We request that you only message if the need is urgent, so that our resources can be directed to those that need it most.
Please use the resources available on the www.nhs.uk/coronavirus
Please do not message us for work related issues, these need to be taken up with your employer.
Please do not contact us for Boots Bradwell Common Pharmacy queries as we are also not able to get through to them.
‘NHS England have asked practices to identify patients who are on the ‘at risk’ list who should be moved to the ‘at very high risk’ list. We have started this work but are waiting for some additional guidance. We hope to finish this work by Sunday 5 April.
If you are on the ‘at risk’ list you need to social distance.
The ‘at risk’ list is: Patients aged 70 or older (regardless of medical condition) & Patients aged under 70 with an underlying health condition, that is anyone advised to get a flu jab as an adult each year on medical grounds.
We will let you know if you are to be moved from the ‘at risk’ list to the ‘at very high risk’ list by Sunday 5 April.’
Pharmacy Easter Opening Times
Welcome to CMK Medical Centre
We are a busy urban practice consisting of ten GPs, 2 Registrars and seven practice nurses with midwifery services. We work closely together for the benefit of the patients.
We believe that we provide a choice of personal care with a wide range of medical interests. In line with modern practices we use a comprehensive computer service which is now a key tool in patient care, record keeping, prescribing and preventative medicine.
We are a training practice which involves fully qualified doctors (registrars) working with us to become General Practitioners. Occasionally, we may also have medical students working alongside our doctors and at such times you will be asked permission for these professionals to be present during your consultation. You do, of course, have the right to refuse.
Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)
The NHS in England and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to protect patients, our community and NHS staff while ensuring as many services as possible are available to the public.
If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days.
Please do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice.
If you live with other people, they should stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home. After 14 days, anyone you live with who does not have symptoms can return to their normal routine.
But, if anyone in your home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms start. Even if it means they're at home for longer than 14 days. The most up-to-date public guidance is always online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.
Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the online service or you cannot go online.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact.
A person can also catch the virus by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.
Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict guidelines.
This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of GP surgeries, pharmacies and hospitals and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.
Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:
• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
Please note that all calls to and from the practice are recorded for monitoring and training purposes.
