All patients are automatically registered with Mytton Oak Medical Practice. As part of a government initiative patients have also now been allocated to a named accountable GP. It is important to note that patients are still free to see whichever GP they choose, however any incoming post or results will normally be reviewed by your named GP who will have overall responsibility for your care. If you would like to know who your allocated named GP is then please speak to any member of staff when you next attend the practice or alternatively ask at reception.
It is possible for Patients to book, amend and cancel appointments and to order repeat prescriptions online. It is also possible for patients to view their medical records, including test results online. Please contact the surgery for details.
