PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP INFORMATION
We are looking to expand the membership of our Patient Participation Group so that it becomes more representative of our patient population.
If you are interested in joining please ask for a form at reception when you visit the surgery or click on the link above to fill in your details.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Welcome to High Street Surgery Epping
Welcome to our new website. We've chosen to launch it now so that we can provide information to our patients in an easier to access format. Unfortunately, under the present Covid restrictions some of our services such as online appointment booking have had to be suspended but will return when it is safe to do so.
As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to the NHS and other relevant organisations.
ACCESSIBILITY MENU ICON
We have now added the Accessibiity Menu Icon to our Website.
This ICON will pop up on the right hand side of the screen and if you click on this it will enable you to adjust the screen to suit your needs. For example increase the size of text and many more adjustments.
We hope you find this useful.
All the staff at The High Street Suurgery would like to thank our patients for their help and assistance during this difficult time we are all going through.
Our aim is at all times to keep you the patients safe as well as our staff. To this end we will be asking you to follow the SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES when you attend for your confirmed appointment. There will be signs and floor markings to assist you with this. You will be asked to use the sanitizing hand gel.
We are continuing to triage all requests for appointments. You will be contacted by a clinician and be given a time to attend the surgery or you may be offered a video consultation.
Following national guidance in June we will be re-introducing some appointments for routine reviews. You will be contacted directly by a member of staff offering you an appointment if required for your review.
When you attend your appointment please wear a suitable face covering. This will ensure that our supply of PPE is always available for the clinical staff.
Please remember to attend your appointment alone. If required your carer can attend with you. For children’s appointments only one parent/carer please. This will help us with social distancing and prevent the waiting room becoming over full.
You can continue to post your routine prescription requests in the post box located outside by the main entrance. Alternatively if you are registered for on-line services please order your repeat medications via the link on this web site. If you would like to register for on-line services please contact Reception.
The Surgery is experiencing a high rate of DNA appointments.
From 19th June to 19th July 2022 124 appointments were booked and not attended.
This equated to 29 hours worth of appointments.
PLEASE if you cannot attend your appointment contact the Surgery to cancel and let someone else have the use of this empty slot.
