Welcome to Shiregreen Medical Centre

About Shiregreen Medical Centre

With patients’ needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need.
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 other relevant medical organisations.
Our mission is to provide excellent clinical care to the patients in the surrounding areas, wherever possible.

If you are eligible for a flu vaccine, contact us now.
You can book an appointment online via patient access or by calling the surgery.
It is better to contact the surgery after 10.30am when we are a little quieter and we can find you an appointment within the next few weeks that suits you.
If you are someone who struggles to leave the house due to medical reasons, we would still ask you to call us, so that we know to add you to our home visit list.
If you really do not want to have your flu vaccination this year, and feel fully aware of the potential risks of not being vaccinated, could you please contact us anyway, so that we can update your record and make sure we don’t ask you again until next year.
This year we have had to adjust the way in which we run our Flu Clinics to make sure you are safe and protected from the risks of catching Corona Virus. So we will be running our Flu Clinics from Melrose Surgery and operating a one way system.
If you are unable to attend Melrose surgery you must let us know.
You will receive information about what you need to do when you come for your vaccination once your appointment has been booked.
Your GP Practice is the safest place for you to attend to get your Flu Vaccination

The NHS is open for business.

If you need medical help, the NHS is still here for you.
The practice is open and available for patients who need care.
If you need medical help from us, contact us by phone on 0114 2456123 to be assessed. Please don’t turn up at the GP surgery without an appointment.
If you need urgent medical help, use the NHS 111 online service. If you cannot get help online, call 111 and they’ll direct you to the best place. A&E and the walk in centre are open for urgent and emergency health needs.
If it’s a serious or life-threatening emergency, call 999. If you are told to go to the hospital, you must go to the hospital.

Fit notes

Please do not ask your GP for a fit note if you are off work because of coronavirus. Instead, you can get an isolation note to send to your employer as proof you need to stay at home. These can be obtained electronically by visiting http://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note Click here for fit note…
If you need a fit note for something other than coronavirus, it must be signed by a doctor but you do not always need to see a GP in person to get one.
Please don’t turn up at the practice unless we have told you to. In the first instance, ring the practice to talk to someone.
“Fit note” is the informal name for a Statement of Fitness for Work. Find out more about when you need a fit note.

Youth Covid-19 Response Personal Experience Study 16-24 year olds

We would be grateful if you could complete this online study looking at how Covid-19 is affecting the lives, mental health and wellbeing of young people aged 16-24. It is an academic study, not commercial and results will be used for academic research only. It is a joint project between UCL and Imperial College London and is covering the whole of the UK.
-It is going to be really important to understand what the needs are now and moving forward for policy and healthcare.
-This age group is particularly vulnerable as they tend to fall between the cracks in terms of health provision but also have a voice.
-There are concerns that they are an especially vulnerable group for mental health through this and being affected by the impacts of education and employment.

The study is an anonymous and online survey that takes about 15-20 minutes. Please click here for the survey
