With effect from end of September 2018 we are pleased to be able to offer our patients access to routine appointments at evenings and weekends.
The new service is part of an extended access service which has been commissioned by NHS South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group.
Appointments are for pre-bookable non-urgent appointments and are available between 6.30pm and 8pm Monday to Thursday and 9am to 12pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Appointments will also be available on bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods
The service endeavours to see practices across the area working closely together to provide convenient high quality care and may mean that you can take advantage of an appointment with our health professionals. We will also be seeing patients from other practices at these times.

This new system will offer an updated version of confirmation and reminder texts and if you own a smart phone, you are able to cancel appointments via the service and take advantage of the smart function. You will need to download "MJog Messenger" from your app store. You will also notice new features that include our friends and family test as well as advertising campaigns that relate to your health.
Please read – this may help you save the life of a person who has suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.
Wherever you live, wherever you work, simply knowing the location and postcode of your nearest Public Access Defibrillator may save valuable seconds when ringing the Emergency Services to report a suspected cardiac arrest. When you dial 999 the Ambulance Call Handler will ask a series of questions and should your patient require it, they will identify the nearest available defibrillator to you, and give you access details. This information will be freely given if you are within approx. 200 metres of a defibrillator that the local ambulance service are aware of, and if there is another person available to go and fetch the device. The most important element in a cardiac arrest is to ensure effective chest compressions are carried out.
If you are outside of this 200 metre distance and know the whereabouts of an available defibrillator, you can choose to send someone to fetch it. You should ensure you know the access to your nearest defibrillator as some are locked and require a code or remote unlocking.
If you go to a cabinet and find it is locked, providing the Ambulance Service has this cabinet listed they will be able to provide the information you require to gain access.
You will need to call 999 and give the postcode of the cabinet location. All defibrillators listed have been allocated a unique call sign which should be written on the cabinet and should also be given to the Ambulance Service Call Handler if written on the cabinet.
There is no legal responsibility for defibrillator owners to have their device listed with the Ambulance Service. We recommend you store the postcode of the nearest Public Access Defibrillator cabinet on your phone, wallet and by your telephone at home/work and ensure that you know the access details.
Saving seconds can save lives.

Munro Medical Centre re-accredited as a GP training practice – “an excellent training practice”
Spring 2016 - Good news - Munro Medical Centre has been re-accredited as a GP training practice (where doctors in the final stages of postgraduate training complete their training to be a GP). The report stated that we are “an excellent training practice” and “make every effort to be learner-centred”. This training is really important, partly to introduce new doctors to south Lincolnshire where hopefully some will decide to stay. We are very proud of this achievement and will work hard to maintain it.
DNA APPOINTMENTS – DID NOT ATTEND
It is in the best interest of both parties for patients to cancel their unwanted appointments. This will prevent the Medical Centre from instigating our DNA (Did Not Arrive) policy.
The cancellation line is accessible around the clock for this sole purpose but patients can also phone the Centre in working hours and speak to a receptionist for the specific purpose of cancelling an appointment and rebooking as required.
Typically over 40 hours of clinicians’ time is lost each month; this also represents a huge waste of resources and even worse your unwanted appointment, which you failed to cancel, cannot then be offered to another patient.
Please see our DNA policy below:
One unattended appointment where no attempt has been made to cancel or offer reasonable explanation for none attendance will mean the patient is sanctioned to “book on the day appointments only” for a period of 6 months. Exceptions will be made for annual review appointments for chronic illness booked by the surgery.
If there are subsequent DNAs within this period of 6 months of sanctioning the practice reserves the right to remove a patient from the practice list and the patient will be required to register elsewhere.
We have a duty of care to ensure our patients are taking the correct medication, therefore, if you have prescriptions and do not attend an arranged medication review or annual chronic illness review, we may stop the repeat prescription until you have been seen for your review appointment. This will mean that you will have to come to the surgery to collect your prescription, or for dispensing patients, your medication.
