Letter from the NHS
The Government has issued new guidance for people who are at very high risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19) because of an underlying health condition. If you're at high risk, you will be contacted by the NHS by Sunday 29 March and strongly advised to stay at home at all times and avoid any face-to-face contact for a period of at least 12 weeks from the day you receive your letter.
Our GP surgeries are facing unprecedented challenges at the moment. Please DO NOT contact your GP or healthcare team at this stage to ask if you’re going to receive a letter – please wait to be contacted by the NHS.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in the UK we are changing how we book all face to face appointments. The online booking appointment system has been temporarily suspended at the surgery and we ask all patients to use either eConsult or to ring the practice to book an appointment. This will ensure that we are able to fully assess risk before appointments are booked at the surgery.
As you are aware the practice uses eConsult and patients are advised to seek advice via this service. Please visit the services section on our website for further information and access to the eConsult service
For any general information on coronavirus please visit
Staying Active during lockdown has been updated with some important information for older adults.
Reducing the risk of falling provides a booklet from our Health Improvement team and a link within this booklet to some simple exercises to help prevent falls.
Have you registered for Patient Access?
You can book appointments online, access parts of your medical records including blood test results, medications & consultations with your GP.
Please speak to a Care Navigator if you wish to register (you must provide photographic ID to be able to register for this service)
Dates of Practice Closures
The Practice will be closed for half a day during the afternoon on the following dates. The reason for the closure is so that the practice staff and Clinicians can have protected time to carry out training. Should you require medical assistance during the times when we are closed please dial the surgery number as normal and you will be redirected to the NHS 111 service who will be able to assist you further.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. The average pay for GPs working in Murdishaw Health Centre in the last financial year was £56,412 before tax and National Insurance.
This is for 3 full time GPs & 2 part time GP Locums who worked in the practice for more than six months.
