From Monday 20th June the surgery at South Milford is undergoing some building works to improve the facilities for patients. We apologise for any disruption this causes. We expect the work to last for 6 weeks. Please can patients take extra care when attending the surgery and please follow any instructions from staff or notices. Thank You

This surgery has been rated 'Good' by the Care Quality Commission.

 Please click Automated phone system - Help Sheet for a help sheet to use the new automated phone system

We are delighted to announce that from 3rd March 2015 we are introducing a new automated answering telephone service for our patients. This service will allow you to book, cancel, change, or check your appointments 24 hours a day at any of our sites, even when the surgery is closed.

During normal surgery hours (8am to 6pm) you can use the automated system or choose to speak to a member of staff to book an appointment or to speak to them about something else.

We will also be changing the way we book same day appointment requirements. These will be bookable with the duty practitioner rather than a specific GP. By doing this we hope to improve the waiting times to routine appointments with specific GP's which we know is an issue to patients.

You will also be able to order your repeat prescription on the automated system 24 hours a day too. The system will take you through each item of medication and you can request or skip it. The system won’t let you order if you are due a medication review with the doctor or if it is too soon to order your next items.

To access this service is really simple—please click here PP Flyer.pdf for more information on how to register and use the service




Have your say to

improve your care

When you receive care or treatment within the NHS, you

can fill out a short questionnaire to give us feedback that

will help to improve local services for everyone.

It gives you a chance to tell us what you think about

your experience… good or bad. You can explain your

answer and tell us how we can improve things.

We will look at all feedback and use it to make decisions

that will make local services better for local people.

It is open to all patients, whatever your age or

healthcare needs. You won’t have to give your name

or contact details so our staff won’t know the comments

came from you.

We believe that, if our services are good enough for

you and your family and friends, then they’ll be good for

everyone. So come on and put US to the test by telling

us what you think. To add your feedback please

go to and search for South Milford Surgery

NHS 111




A&E OR 999

Self - care

A range of common illnesses and injuries can be treated at home by combining a well-stocked medicine cabinet with plenty of rest. This is the best choices for very minor illnesses and injuries.

NHS 111

NHS 111 is a new service that provides confidential health advice and information by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year. You can call 111 when you need urgent medical help but it is not a 999 emergency. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.


Your local pharmacist can give you advice on illnesses and the medicines you need to treat them. Visit a pharmacist when you are suffering from a common health problem which does not require being seen by a nurse or doctor.


GP surgeries provide a range of services by appointment, including medical advice, examinations and prescriptions. They also provide an out-of-hours service which you can contact by telephoning your local surgery and following the recorded instructions.

NHS walk-in centre, urgent care centre or minor injuries unit

You do not need an appointment and you will be seen by an experienced nurse or GP. These services give healthcare advice and most are open from early morning until late at night. Visit one of these centres if you need medical treatment or advice which does not need a visit to A&E or a medical appointment.


You should only call 999 for an ambulance in a medical emergency when it is obvious that you or another person has a serious or life-threatening illness or injury, such as:

  • cardiac arrest
  • breathing difficulties
  • chest pain
  • stroke
  • loss of consciousness
  • heavy blood loss
  • severe burns and scalds
  • choking
  • fitting/convultions
  • drowning
  • severe allergic reactions
  • head injuries


Calling 999 wisely helps to avoid unnecessary pressure on this valuable life- saving service.


So, if you have a minor ailment or injury please consider the variety of other more appropriate healthcare services available to ensure emergency ambulances are not diverted away from those who need them most.

Making your own way to hospital - If you do need hospital treatment, but are not in a life-threatening condition, you can arrive at A&E by getting a lift from friends and family or a taxi. Arriving by ambulance does not necessarily mean you will be seen more quickly.

Care data: sharing your information

A modern information system has been developed, which will

make increased use of information from medical records with the intention of improving health services. The system is being delivered by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) and NHS England on behalf of the NHS.

The new system will also provide information that will enable the public to hold the NHS to account and ensure that any unacceptable standards of care are identified as quickly as possible. Information will help to:

  • find more effective ways of preventing, treating and managing illnesses

· guide local decisions about changes that are needed to respond to the needs

of local patients



· support public health by anticipating risks of particular diseases and conditions, and help us to take action to prevent problems



· improve the public’s understanding of the outcomes of care, giving them confidence in health and care services



· guide decisions about how to manage NHS resources so that they can best support the treatment and management of illness for the benefit of patients alt="" src=""> It is important that you read the leaflet Care Data Leaflet so that you understand how information in medical records can be used to improve the way that healthcare is delivered.



If you are happy for your information to be used then you do not need to do anything. But if you have concerns you should talk us.



If you do not want information that identifies you from being shared outside your GP practice, talk to a member of staff at the practice. They will arrange to make a note of this in your medical record. This will prevent your information being used other than where necessary by law, such as in case of a public health emergency. You will also be able to restrict the use of information held by other places you receive care from. However, this will not affect the care you receive.



The practice was established in the area at the turn of last century. Based in South Milford we cover a total of 22 villages, holding branch surgeries in two, at Micklefield and Thorpe Willoughby. The practice team wishes to offer a high standard of care, combining traditional and modern practice. The practice is a non-limited partnership.

As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site.
