Practice Updates

Welcome to our new website

We hope you find this new website much easier to navigate from tablets and smartphones.  Our old website served us well, but was best suited to view from a desktop and could be confusing at times. We always have a lot of information to share with our patients, but we have tried to consolidate the information and showcase it in a logical and effective way to navigate.

If you cannot find what you are looking for, or stumble across an error please do let us know, otherwise we hope you enjoy this new way of engaging with us.

Covid Precautions-for everyone’s safety:  

In order for us all to stay safe it’s important to follow these procedures: 

  • Please attend at the appointment time, if you arrive too early you may be sent away and asked to return at the appointed time
  • Please DO NOT attend if you feel unwell  - please re-book
  • Wear a face covering and use hand sanitisers on entry and exit to and from the building
  • Attend alone or with a carer if required
  • Follow the one way system and maintain social distancing at all times until in the room where you are being seen

Please see below the latest updated course brochure for all Smile:)MK courses (run by MK Council).  The majority of this term’s courses will be delivered online and can be accessed via Zoom.  All the online courses are completely free to anyone regardless of income, who is aged 19+ and they are aimed at those dealing with mild to moderate depression, anxiety or sleep difficulties.

You can enrol online for free courses at www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/courses or by contacting us on 01908 556700.  Unfortunately for any course with a fee attached you can only enrol by phone at present but we are hoping this will be remedied in the near future.
