Temporary Suspension of Registrations
It is with regret that on Friday 11th March 2016 we made the decision that it was necessary to temporarily suspend registration of new patients to our practice list.
The reason that we have come to this decision is because the number of patients wishing to register with us at the Mayflower Medical Centre continues to increase.
We feel that in order to ensure safety and maintain the high standard of care we offer patients who are already registered with us, we must take this decision.
Obviously we will continue to offer emergency (immediately necessary) treatment to patients when clinically required.
We will continue to register new born babies to parents already registered with us.
We will not be holding a waiting list.
NHS England and the Mayflower Medical Centre Patient Participation Group are aware of this.
