PRACTICE CLOSED FOR STAFF TRAINING
Please note that the Practice closes early one afternoon each month for staff training. The next training afternoon is on Wednesday 22 April 2015. Our Ripley branch surgery will close at 1pm and our main Greenhill Surgery at Leabrooks at 1.30pm. If you need to speak to a doctor during this time then you should dial the free NHS telephone number: 111. However, if you have an emergency situation you should dial 999.
We are very sorry to announce that our Nurse Manager/Nurse Practitioner, Jan Gregory, will shortly be retiring from the Jessop Medical Practice after 14 years. She will be sadly missed and we wish her well in her well deserved retirement!

NHS 111 Service
From 21st August 2012 the new NHS 111 service was introduced in this area. From this date if you need urgent medical attention when the surgery is closed you should dial 111 which will connect you to the service free of charge (from landlines or mobiles).
We welcomed two new GP registrars to the practice in August 2014, Dr Kumar and Dr Reddington, who have been with us in the past and have returned for 12 months to complete their GP Training. Dr Austin Dekker will be joining us in April for four months and we welcome him to the Practice.
Our Patient Participation Group continues, and is always looking for more members. The next meeting will be held at 6pm on Tues 24 March 2015 at the Leabrooks surgery; all welcome. Please see the PPG pages on the right hand side for further information.
Jessop Medical Practice is one of 57 practices that make up the Southern Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group. One of our GPs, Dr Mott, is heavily involved in this work. Further information is available here.
