Welcome to Mile Oak Medical Centre
We are a GP doctor's surgery providing both NHS and private services and clinics to the residents of Mile Oak, Portslade, Hangleton, Fishersgate and parts of Shoreham-by-Sea in Sussex. Unlike many GP Practices we have a range of other specialist clinicians and clinics working together in our purpose-built building. We have physiotherapists, midwives, audiologists, podiatrists, dermatologists and various other services all under one roof. This benefits our patients and improves communication between clinicians leading to improved patient care.
Mile Oak Medical Centre will be running flu clinics on the following dates
Aged 65 or older Saturday 26th September from 9 am
Any Eligible Saturday 3rd October from 9 am
Any Eligible Saturday 17th October from 9am
Mile Oak Medical Centre recommends that patients attend a flu clinic at the surgery for their vaccinations as the surgey is able to update your medical record directly and you may also be offered Shingles and Pneumococcal vaccines at the same time if you are eligible. All flu clinics will be run using strict social distancing provisions.
Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.
The NHS is well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases and has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal. Check online at gov.uk and at nhs.uk for the latest COVID-19 information before attending the practice.
For more information on supporting your recovery after COVID-19 click here. The website has information from rehabilitation experts about how to manage ongoing symptoms and health needs at home, and signposts to sources of support. A significant proportion of post COVID-19 patients are likely to have ongoing health problems. How quickly somebody recovers and the problems they have is likely to vary, and this website can help to answer some questions for patients.
If you have signs or symptoms of coronavirus please call 111 for advice, do not contact the surgery. The surgery is open the usual hours but please be mindful we are trying to reduce the need for patients to enter the building in order to protect our staff and most vulnerable patients who need regular treatment. Most problems can and will be dealt with over the phone. As you can imagine our phone lines are busy with the increased need so your patience is greatly appreciated at this time.
If you need to order repeat medication you can do this via the Prescription Direct Ordering (POD) Freephone Telephone 0808 1647678 or put your request in the Grey Mailbox on the outside of the Practice building near the main doors. Medical certificates can be posted or emailed to patients if needed.
