Having problems getting through to the Surgery at 8.00am?
After research into our telephone system, it has shown that on average 40+ people are ringing the Surgery just before 8.00am in the hope to beat the early morning rush. This is causing a back log in the system which is delaying patients getting through when the lines actually open.
Please note that the telephone lines do not switch over until 8.00am, this is when we advise you to start dialling. Thank you for your co-operation.

Parking at The Mill
Like most surgeries we are unable to provide sufficient car parking for all our patients. Primarily the car park is and always has been for the use of those patients who really are unable to walk either because they are disabled, infirm or generally unwell.
We do ask our patients who are physically able to do so to take the healthy option and park off site. There is generous, inexpensive parking at the nearby car park on Meadrow (5 minute walk) or along Catteshall Road. Please be considerate to the residents of the small residential roads that are close to the surgery.
If you do make use of the Car Park please only park in marked bays. In particular please do not park, even for brief periods, alongside the red and white barriers on the left as you enter the car park. The neighbouring land owner has right of access over this boundary .
In the event of an Emergency situation, for example if the Practice experience a loss of power and/or telephones, The Practice will send regular updates to Eagle Radio Station - 96.4FM.
The Practice would only close in extreme circumstances, where it is deemed unsafe for our patients and staff to remain on the premesis. The Practice will send regular updates to Eagle Radio Station - 96.4FM and will leave a clear message on the front door.
The NHS operate a zero tolerance policy with regard to violence and abuse and the practice has the right to remove violent patients from the list with immediate effect in order to safeguard practice staff, patients and other persons. Violence in this context includes actual or threatened physical violence or verbal abuse which leads to fear for a person’s safety. In this situation we will notify the patient in writing of their removal from the list and record in the patient’s medical records the fact of the removal and the circumstances leading to it.
