Welcome to Millrise Medical Practice
The doctors and staff at Millrise Medical Practice in Milton are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.
We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.
The practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP.
All patients registered with the parctice now have a named GP, this is a recent NHS requirement which is for practice purposes only and does not affect your right to request an appoitment with the GP of your choice.
The practice does however keep a record of your registered (accountable) GP. If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.
We will continue to offer appointments to our patients in exaly the same way.
Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.
Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.

WE HAVE NOW GONE LIVE WITH ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTIONS!
This service gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
What does this mean for you? If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
The turn around time for the repeat prescription service will be 72 hours this gives the GP surgery time to get your prescription electronically to the chemist and the chemist to get it ready for you to collect so there is less waiting time at the pharmacy.
Is this service right for you?
Yes, if you have a stable condition and you: don’t want to go to your GP practice every time to collect your repeat prescription. collect your medicines from the same place most of the time or use a prescription collection service now.
You need to choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. This is called nomination. You can choose: a pharmacy. a dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one).
Ask any pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS or your GP practice to add your nomination for you. You don’t need a computer to do this.
Can I change my nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription?
Yes you can. If you don’t want your prescription to be sent electronically tell your GP. If you want to change or cancel your nomination speak to any pharmacist or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS, or your GP practice. Tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.
