Welcome To Paxton Medical Group
PMG covers two sites, the Claughton site and the Fender Way site. Both surgeries are purpose built with car parking facilities and disabled access. There are 12 doctors working across both sites.
The Practice is fully computerised to improve our efficiency and service to our patients. We constantly review the services available and aim to provide a high standard of patient care to all our patients. Many of our services are designed to encourage our patients to achieve a healthier lifestyle and we invite you to make use of them. We now offer FREE patient WiFi at our Claughton Site.
We Understand that with the announcement of a new lockdown there are going to be a number of patients concerned about the situation, especially those in very vulnerable risk groups and so those with children attending educational settings. The current government advice about high risk groups is avaliable here:
Further publication is due on Monday, and the government will be writing to affected patients. The GPs at the surgery have no additional information above and beyond this and are unable to help with requests for sick notes or other letters in such circumstances.
For people concered about children attending educational seetings: We understand and sympathise with concerns around this, especially if a household has extremely vulnerable members. As a practice we are bery sorry, but decisions about children attending school are not ours to make. It's not something that we can help with. We would suggest a discussion between the people involved and the school to decide on the best course of action.
Kindest Regards, PMG.
Coronavirus Vaccine Information
Any patients who were identified as clinically vulnerable & received a letter from the NHS during the first lockdown advising to shield. Since the announcement on 04/01/21 any patients who shielded last time are requested to shield again.
All clinically extremely vulnerable people will receive a new letter with information on what they should be doing to stay safe. The practice will not be providing letters to patients about shielding - this will come directly from NHS England.
Should your employer request a new letter or request a note from your GP, unforntunately the GP's are unable to do letters and you should wait to receive the new letter from NHS England.
Shielding letters are for the patient only, NOT for the household members, anyone who is concerned should speak with their employers.
