Survey On Flu Vaccinations
Brunel Medical Practice is currently the largest practice in the South Devon and Torbay Clinical Commissioning Area with 16,100 patients and three surgeries. Unfortunately we have been forced to take the unprecedented step of no longer registering new patients in our practice. This is a decision that has not been taken lightly by the Partners, but due to the national GP recruitment crisis we have been unable to replace the two GPs who retired this time last year.
It is important that as a practice we deliver a high standard of good quality clinical care. Whilst we have been using a number of very good and regular locums over the past year they are not able to provide the continuity of care that we want for our patients. Therefore with immediate effect our list is now closed to new patients. The only exception to this is family members who are related to a patient who is already registered with the practice and comprises as follows:
Husband/Wife, Common Law Partnerships and Civil Partnerships
Step Mother/Step Father
Children of parents already registered /Step children of parents already registered
Siblings /Step siblings
The list will be closed for a period of 11 months and 28 days or until such time as we are able to replace the two GPs who retired.

Registration Letters from NHS England - please respond if you get one
The NHS is carrying out work in Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly to make sure that the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all.
If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes. Changes can be made by returning the form in the prepaid envelope. If the details are correct, you can confirm by freepost, by freephone, via text message or online.
It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do get out of date over time. If we don't have an accurate record of your name and address, then we or a hospital may not be able to contact you with important information.
We may also need to contact you :
With test results
To invite you for bowel, breast or cervical screening to protect against cancer for example
To offer vaccination against infectious diseases such as flu or measles, mumps and rubella
To give you an appointment as part of your plan to stay healthy if you have a long term illness
Please respond to the letter within four weeks, so the NHS can be certain about your details. Otherwise, the NHS will assume that you have moved away, and begin the process to remove you from the practice list.
