Brexit - How does it affect your medications?
The NHS website has updated its information for patients, around the continuity of medicines supply if there is a no-deal EU exit.
The NHS website provides the following advice regarding stock-piling:
Get prescriptions as normal
Please keep ordering your repeat prescriptions and taking your medicines as normal. It is unnecessary to change how you order and take your medicines. It's important you don't ask for more medicines than you normally need, doing so risks pressure on availability of medicines for other people.
The NHS England Website has also updated the FAQ section for clinicians, to explain the government’s multi-layered approach to ensure that medicines continue to be available if there is a no-deal EU exit.

Blood Clinics -
As part of our efforts to maintain social distancing and reduce footfall in the practice during the COVID-19 pandemic, blood tests are now available on an appointment basis. If your clinician requests a blood test for you, they will ask for you to book an appointment for your blood test with a phlebotomist. Please note, we are not currently offering a walk-in blood test service. If you think you are due to have a blood test, please contact us by clicking here
The Practice offers a phlebotomy service in three segments on Monday to Thursday between 08:30-12:00, 13:00 – 14:45 and 15:00-16:20. Fridays between 08:30-12.30 and 13:30-16:20. This is a walk-in service, but we also accept bookings. Getting your bloods taken at the practice means that the service is closer to our patients’ home, no appointment is needed, and waiting times are likely to be significantly shorter.
For patients who find it difficult to make any of these times, another option is available. We have agreed with one of our partner practices, East One Health, at 14 Deancross Street, E1 2QA, that patients can have their blood tests done there on Saturday mornings between 9:00-12:00 as long as they have a request form from the practice with them. Unlike our walk-in blood tests, Saturday appointments DO need to be booked.
Nurse Clinics - Monday to Friday for chronic disease management including asthma, COPD, diabetes, ischaemic heart
disease. Vaccinations, wound care, lifestyle and dietary advice
Benefits/Debt Advice - Tuesday morning

Average pay for GPs
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is published and the required disclosure is shown below. However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with any other practice.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Jubilee Street Practice in the last financial year (2019/20) was £61,470 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 1 full time (non GP) partner and 10 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.

Practice complaints procedure
We hope that, if you have a problem, you will use our practice complaints procedure. We believe this will give us the best chance of putting right whatever has gone wrong and an opportunity to improve our practice. But this does not affect your right to approach the local health authority, if you feel you cannot raise your complaint with us or you are dissatisfied with the result of our investigation, you can contact the Patient Advisory Liaison Service.
