Staff Training

The Medical Unit is closed for staff training on Wednesday afternoon 15th March 2017.

How we are Doing..

In January 6,578 patients had appointments at the Measham Medical Unit.  Of these, 1,086 were seen in our morning surgeries, and 758 had blood tests.

Unfortunately, 197 patients failed to attend their appointments; this time could have been allocated to other patients.

Please help us to give you the best service we can offer by:

  • Keeping any appointments you make
  • Cancelling an appointment if you know you can’t keep it
  • Treating all our staff with respect – receptionists, nurses, doctors, etc
  • Letting us know how we can improve the service we offer.

Spring into Spring!

If exercise were a pill, it would be one of the most cost-effective drugs ever invented.

Even a little bit of exercise will make you feel better about yourself, boost your confidence, and cut your risk of developing a serious illness.

Exercise is free, easy to take, has an immediate effect and you don’t need a GP to get some!
