WHATS NEW

PHYSIOTHERAPIST – Simon Crossley started with us at the end of August and he works on Friday afternoons. Simon can deal with injuries, sprains, sports injuries, managing arthritis and back pain. He is also able to arrange investigations such as X-rays and blood tests if needed or refer you for physiotherapy or exercise rehabilitation.

PHARMACIST – We have a pharmacist called Laura Harding who is working with us on Wednesdays; she is currently helping with medication reviews and safety prescribing searches and management.

SOCIAL PRESCRIBER – Briony Mellor is our new social prescriber, she will be helping with patients who are over 18 years and -  

  • Have poor mental wellbeing         
  • Are frequent healthcare attenders
  • Have mild to moderate depression or anxiety  
  • Have one or more long term conditions
  • Are lonely or isolated
  •  Have complex social need

Social prescribing differs from signposting, as it particularly supports people who lack the confidence or knowledge to get involved in community groups or approach agencies on their own

Quality Improvement Programme targets

We are slowly and safely moving back to full services, we have put in distancing slots between all of our face to face appointments to ensure social distancing and time for our staff to clean down between each patient. As a result this has meant a reduction in appointment capacity and therefore longer waiting times. Your safety and our staff’s safety is paramount to us at Markfield Medical Centre.
