We have permission to dispense to patients who live more than one mile from the nearest chemist. The Health Service regulations on this matter are very strict. For further information, please ask a member of our dispensary staff who will be pleased to help. They can be contacted direct on 01799 582623.
We are able to offer non-NHS services to patients. These include:
- Private Fitness to work
- Adoption/pre-employment/HGV medicals
- Insurance medicals
- "To whom it may concern" letters
A charge will be made for these services. Please enquire at reception for details.
Patients Over 75 Years
If you are aged 75 or over, you are entitled to be seen annually by a health care professional. Please contact the surgery if you wish to arrange an appointment.
The practice area is defined as being within a seven-mile radius of Gold Street Surgery, except where this radius goes north of the A505 (ie we only accept patients who are resident south of the A505).
Relevant postcodes are (not exclusively) CB1, CB10 and CB11.
Clinical Commissioning Group
Our practice is included in an area overseen by the West Essex CCG (see details here).
Copies Of Letters To Patients
If you require a copy of a letter your doctor has written about you, please make your request during your consultation and arrangements will be made for a copy of that letter to be available for collection from the practice some days later.
Patients' Participation Group
The practice is pleased to have a Patients' Participation Group. The aim of the group is to improve communication to all patients of the surgery. Meetings are held as needed. Further information is available on the notice boards at both surgeries and members of the group can be contacted via our receptionists.
