Non-urgent advice: Ruskin Road Closure

Dear Patient,

Ruskin Road Surgery – Important changes to your GP practice

I am writing to let you know that from 28th June 2024 your GP practice MGS Medical Practice will close branch site Ruskin Road Surgery 
30-32 Ruskin Road Wolverhampton WV10 8DJ.
We are pleased to announce following the sale of Ruskin Road Surgery to Compton Care, who will provide their range of services to the local community.
All GP services and staff from Ruskin Road Surgery will be transferring to existing MGS Medical practice sites. The main site Low Hill Surgery 191 First Avenue Wolverhampton WV10 9SX and branch site Bradley practice WV14 8BW.
Low Hill surgery is 5 minutes away by car, 8 minutes by bus, 15 minutes away to walk, same bus routes and same public transport to and from both sites. Bradley practice is 25 minutes away by car and has good bus routes and public transport to any of the sites. So we hope that the move will mean a very small change for patients and an exciting opportunity for the local community to access services provided by Compton care locally.
Please note that existing MGS Medical Practice sites will now be providing your medical care, your patient records will automatically be transferred – they are ready to welcome you, you do not need to take any further action.  If you need to book an appointment you can call MGS Medical Practice on 01902 728861 via the NHS App or by using the e-consult form on www.mgsmedicalpractice.nhs.uk

To arrange a repeat prescription, you can send a written request to MGS Medical Practice at the postal address above, drop this into the surgery or via the NHS App or via your nominated pharmacy.

If you prefer not to transfer to existing MGS Medical Practice sites, you have the right to choose an alternative GP practice. You can obtain a list and register online at https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/gps/how-to-register-with-a-gp-surgery/ or alternatively you can call the NHS Black Country Integrated Care Board’s (ICB) customer service team called Time2Talk.

If you know other people who are registered with the practice in your household, I would be grateful if you would share this information with them and make them aware of the changes happening.

Accurx Patient Triage

Dear Patient/ Service user

We are using form-based triage known as digital triage to try and cope with increased demand for appointments and reduce waiting time to get through the telephone lines.

We are using an online consultation system to gather information and support the triage of patients. This is to decide on what the most appropriate mode of care delivery is for that patient and to enable care to be provided by the right professional with the right level of urgency. 

Appointments will be face to face, via telephone or online as advised depending on the best approach for you. 

If your call is not urgent and you have access to the internet, please use the online services visit our practice website www.mgsmedicalpractice.nhs.uk for further information and complete the accurx patient triage online form giving a short explanation of why you need an appointment or what your query is about.

Non-digital users may be supported by carers or taken through the same online form by our reception team or by calling our patient partner telephone number 01902 229788 and let us know if you need assistance with your appointment for example any reasonable adjustments and or booking translation services ahead of your appointment. 

MGS Medical Practice is a zero tolerance practice, please respect members of the team as they will need to ask certain questions so you are directed to the right professional or service. 

We would like to thank you for your ongoing support and patience and let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend a booked appointment and keep us updated with any changes to your contact details especially if you have opted out of the online services.

Preferences can be updated by completing the accurx form to register online.
