Village Information Poster for MAY 2017

The Medical Unit is closed for staff training on Wednesday afternoon 10 May.


Did you know ....? Some interesting figures for the month of March.

Our Doctors and Nurse Practitioners saw 4567 patients:

* 1312 of those patients were seen in our morning surgery and a further 738 as emergencies.

Our Clinic Team saw 1744 patients:

* 890 of these had blood tests and our practice nurses saw 934 patients.

* 59 children were immunised; 59 patients received antenatal care.

That’s a total of 7363 patients seen at the Unit in March.


Morning Surgery: Our morning surgery is not an emergency surgery; it is a surgery for dealing with one new acute problem that needs attention that day. It is not for ongoing or multiple problems which are much better dealt with in a booked appointment.

Summer Tea Parties: Starting next month, the Patient Participation Group will be organising a number of Summer Tea Parties in various locations in the MMU catchment area. These will give an opportunity for people to meet informally; to learn a little more of what the Practice can offer; and to find out what additional activities would be welcomed to encourage self-care.


Village Information Poster for APRIL 2017

Easter Holidays: The Medical Unit is closed on Friday 14 April and Monday 17 April. We will be open on Saturday 15 April for emergencies between 8am and 11-50am. Please telephone first on 01530 270667. If you need advice or assistance while we’re closed, please call 111, or in the case of emergencies call 999.


Medical Student: During April we will have a medical student working at the Unit. The student will be in their 4th year, just one year from qualifying as a doctor. We aim to provide a useful wide experience of General Practice.

Vacancies at the Unit: We are currently advertising for a Practice Nurse (25 hours per week) and two temporary Receptionists (20 hours per week for twelve months). Adverts and application forms are on our website (

Patient Participation Group (PPG): If you live in Donisthorpe or Oakthorpe and are interested in becoming involved, please contact the Reception. Details of the PPG’s activities are on the MMU website. Our next meeting is on Wednesday 3 May at 7pm.


And finally ... The MMU Bake Off: We’re really pleased to say that our recent Bake Off, held in memory of former MMU staff member, raised a wonderful £200.69, for our chosen charity this year - local homeless. Many thanks to all staff who baked the cakes, and to the patients who bought them. Dr Moore won the bake off, and we’ll never hear the last of it until he’s poached by Channel 4 !
