Car Park Management Service

The car park is now managed by Creative Car Park Management Service at all times (including weekends/bank holidays).

It is highly recommended that your car is registered with reception or pharmacy at any time of attending. 

Patients visiting the surgery/pharmacy will need to register their car registration plate every time when attending.

There is a drop off period of 10 minutes maximum without the need to register your car number. 

There is a time allowance of 90 minutes maximum to park for your appointment/visit.

Please be aware anytime exceeding the above times will be liable to a fine of £100.


Flash Glucose Monitoring

In March 2019, NHS England issued national guidance for funding of Flash Glucose Monitoring (using a sensor on the upper arm rather than finger prick test) for relevant diabetes patients. As a result, the NHS in mid and south Essex has reviewed local policy. If you are already under the care of the specialist diabetes team, they will discuss your eligibility at your next routine review.

If you meet the criteria you will receive FreeStyle Libre® funded by the NHS. If you are not under the care of the diabetes specialist team but you clearly meet those strict criteria, you will need to ask to be referred to the specialist team for assessment, and you will be seen at the next available routine appointment.

Patients who want to use (or continue using) FreeStyle Libre® but who do not meet the criteria for an NHS-funded system can buy it directly from the manufacturer by visiting www.FreeStylelibre.co.uk/libre/ or telephoning 0800 170 1177.
