Welcome

Hello and welcome to the website for The Mullion Health Centre, Constantine Surgery, The Lizard Surgery and Ruan Minor Surgery. We’ve packed it full of useful information in a very easy to use format with the added benefit of several online functions. If you’re new to the area, have a look at our opening times, download a registration form and come and see us.


Your NHS data

There have been posts on social media with false information about opting out of sharing your data with the NHS.

Here's what you need to know:

  • There is no 30 September deadline for opting out of sharing your data. You can opt out at any time.
  • NHS Digital will never sell your data.
  • There are strict rules about how NHS can use your data. It's only shared securely and safely.
  • Shared data helps the NHS. It has been used to find the first treatment for coronavirus and for vaccine research.

Read NHS Digital's response to the false information about the national data opt-out

If you decide you would prefer your data is not accessed, you can also find the opt-out form via the link above.  Simply complete it and hand it in at the surgery.


Any patients who are staying in our area but are registered with a surgery elsewhere unfortunately cannot have the Covid-19 vaccination with us.  Instead eligible patients can organise to have a vaccination by calling 119.

NHS119 can be used for all enquiries relating to: 

  • making an appointment to attend for a test, 
  • enquiring about test results, 
  • arranging delivery and collection of a home test kit,
  • and making an appointment for a Covid-19 vaccination.

For vaccinations: you will be asked questions to assess whether you are eligible for a vaccination, and if so, be given an appointment to attend for the vaccination.  Currently our most local mass vaccination clinic is at Stithians Show Ground.


Coronavirus Vaccine Phishing Campaigns

 NHS Digital continues to respond to several ongoing spam email and SMS campaigns seeking to exploit the ongoing UK coronavirus vaccination efforts. These campaigns variously claim to be from the UK Government, the NHS, Test and Trace, GP surgeries, pharmacies, or from other health organisations like the WHO. Typically, the content of these messages attempts to direct users to phishing sites or connect them to high-cost premium number services, although in some cases the messages contain false or misleading information about the coronavirus vaccines themselves.

 Suspicious emails can be forwarded to the NCSC’s Suspicious Email Reporting Service at report@phishing.gov.uk.

 Spam SMS messages should be forwarded free of charge to the 7726 SMS reporting service.


COVID Vaccine

We would like to send our thanks to you all for your patience and understanding over this most challenging of years.


You can find more details about the vaccine at
https://www.ulh.nhs.uk/content/uploads/2020/12/PHE-vaccine-leaflet.pdf please share and discuss this with your family, especially with those who may not have access to the internet, to make sure that they can make an informed decision about the vaccine ahead of us contacting them.
If you think that we do not have an up to date mobile phone number for you please email it to mullion.healthcentre@nhs.net with the subject “mobile number” and your details (name, DOB, mobile number)

We would like to express our thanks to our wonderful staff who have worked tirelessly under significant pressures this last year, for which we are very grateful.
From all the GP partners at Mullion and Constantine Group Practice

Need to visit a Minor Injuries Unit or Emergency Department?

The following applies to ALL patients who have an URGENT problem that may require a visit to the Minor Injuries Unit or the Emergency Department.

Please do not just turn up there, call 111 who will direct you appropriately.

 

Those using the 111 service will be referred or booked into the most-suitable place for treatment, as close to home as possible. That might be any of the urgent treatment centres or minor injuries units, the nearest Emergency Department (ED) or the range of other urgent care services.

 

Anything serious or life-threatening still requires a call to 999.



Leaflet explaining what to do if you have to stay at home because of Coronavirus symptoms, or you have a family member identified as having Coronavirus

Coronavirus social distancing leaflet

As of Monday 16th March 2020, as a Group Practice, we have taken the difficult decision to take the following actions in an attempt to reduce the risk to both patients and staff attending our surgeries:

  1. Total telephone triage of all appointments with GPs, Nurses and Health Care Assistants:

  2. Asking patients to attend appointments in person, when a GP feels appropriate, at a specific time.  Please follow instructions given by the GP, attend alone if possible, and spend as little time as possible within the building. All patients attending the surgery are asked to wear a face covering.  If you do not have a mask, a scarf will suffice;

  3. When requesting medication, please allow plenty of time (there is no need to "stock-pile" medications) and allow us to use the Electronic Prescription System to avoid the need for you to attend the surgery in person.

We will aim to respond to all urgent issues as quickly as possible, but please have patience with our staff at this difficult time.

If at all possible, please seek advice from NHS 111 online services before calling the surgery for advice so we can improve access to patients with urgent clinical needs.

Best wishes, The Partners
