Welcome to Blyth’s Meadow Surgery

The doctors and staff at Blyth’s Meadow Surgery in Braintree are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.


Non Attendance of Appointments

The practice has to deal with missed appointment every week due to patients not giving us notice that they would not be attending. These "did not attends" (DNAs) are a waste of appointments that could be given to other patients. 

Due to the increasing pressures faced by the practice this is not something that we can allow to continue.  We will be monitoring those patients that do not attend on a regular basis. If you miss 3 appointments in a 12 month period, without a valid reason, you may be removed from the practice list and asked to register elsewhere.

For more information click here or the DNA Policy link in the menu to the right. 


New Patient Registrations - OUR LIST IS CURRENTLY CLOSED

Our Practice list is open to patients that are moving into the area as new registrations. We will of course continue to accept new born babies who are immediate family members family of patients already registered at the practice.
