EMERGENCIES

If you need urgent medical advice during practice opening hours, please phone the surgery on 01623 550254.

If you need to see a doctor urgently when we are closed, please phone 111.  An operator will take some details and pass you through to our local out of hours GP service.

APPOINTMENTS

You DO NOT NEED TO CALL AT 8 o'clock in the morning for routine appointments.  If your problem is urgent, please call reception as early as you are able to and you will be seen in our Urgent Care Clinic.  Routine appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance.  Some appointments can be booked online - please speak to reception to obtain a username and password.

CANCELLING AN APPOINTMENT

If you no longer need your appointment, it helps us and other patients if you can cancel your appointment as soon as possible.  This way, we can make sure the appointment can be offered to another patient.  You can cancel at reception, by telephone (01623 550254) or online.

STAFF TRAINING

The practice will be closed on the 3rd Wednesday of the month for essential staff training.

 

Welcome to our practice website

Welcome to Brierley Park Medical Centre. Our aim is to treat all our patients equally and to give you an effective service that is sensitive to your needs.

The doctors and staff are committed to providing high quality medical care.

We look forward to welcoming you to our practice and hope that we may meet your needs. If you feel that there is something else that we could offer, we are keen to hear from you.


Text Messaging changes

Please note that from the 1st July 2019 you will no longer receive an appointment confirmation text if you have consented for us to contact you via text messaging. You will still receive an appointment reminder the day before your appointment and we will continue to contact you via text for anything else we already do (asking you to contact the surgery, letting you know a letter is ready to collect etc.) We understand you often may receive quite a few texts from the surgery for different things and it can be sometimes overwhelming. We hope by doing this we will reduce the amount of texts we send you, but will still be able to remind you of your appointment in good time.

 

If you do require a confirmation text of your appointment, we will be able to do so on request at the time of booking if you have the MJOG smart messenger app downloaded. This is now available to download on the Google Play and Apple App Store. Please see your respective app store for more information.

 

The NHS app is now also available to download and is an easy, accessible way to not only book, view and cancel your appointments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without having to wait on the phone, but also order your medication, set organ donor preferences and get instant advice (via the integrated 111 service) This is also available to download on the Google Play and Apple App store. Simply download the app, follow the on screen instructions to verify your identification which will link it to your electronic record here at the surgery. Click here to watch a YouTube video with more information.

Please note the NHS app is nationwide, whereas MJOG is local to this area and others. They work separately but we recommend downloading both to optimise how we communicate you with digitally. With your help we can reduce the amount of paper we use and in turn, reduce our carbon footprint and help save the environment.

 

For more information, please do not hesitate to contact the surgery


 Get MJog Messenger

The MJOG smart app is now available to download on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. If you have consented to receive SMS messages from the surgery then you can download the MJOG smart app for more integrated communication with us.The messages we send you can contain more information as well as images and links to websites. The app makes replying to us a lot easier with more options, as well as being able to phone the surgery from directly within the app. Messages sent via MJOG smart app are free for both the surgery and yourself. For more information, visit your respective app store or click the icon above.

Online Services

If you do not have access to a smartphone but do have access to a computer you can still access our online services by coming into the surgery with photo identification. We will then give you a username and password to access the same online services as the NHS app. Currently they both have the same information and features, but in future the NHS app will have much more to offer than our services.
