Mill View Surgery
Statement of Purpose
20th January 2021
This is a Statement of Purpose for Mill View Surgery which sets out the following information:
Mill View Surgery is a General Practice Partnership open to all patients living within our Practice boundary in Rocester, Staffordshire and the surrounding areas. We work in partnership with our patients to provide medical care for our patients.
We are a Personal Medical Services (PMS) Practice offering Primary care services for the diagnosis and prevention of disease. We help patients to manage their health and prevent illness. Our GPs assess, diagnose, treat and manage illness. They carry out screening for some diseases and promote general health and wellbeing. Our GPs act as a patient’s advocate, supporting and representing a patient’s best interests to ensure they receive the best and most appropriate health and or social care. Our GPs also provide the link to further health services and work closely with other healthcare colleagues. They may also arrange hospital admissions and referrals to other services and specialists and they link with secondary and community services about patient care, taking advice and sharing information where needed. They also collect and record important information from other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of our patients.
The Practice main address is:
Mill View Surgery, Mill Street, Rocester, Staffordshire ST14 5JX. Tel: 01889 590208.
To deliver the Covid Vaccination Programme (CVP), the practice will use an external site:
Pirelli Stadium, Princess Way, Burton upon Trent, DE13 0AR
And a satellite site:
Uttoxeter Racecourse, Wood Lane, Uttoxeter ST14 8BD
These sites will be risk assessed and managed by PCN representatives.
