It is with tremendous sadness that we have to announce the death of one of our GP Partners, Dr Gillgrass. Kirsty was a remarkably intelligent, industrious and caring individual and colleague who will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with her family and friends, and we would request our patients' understanding at this is difficult time for all staff at Crystal Peaks Medical Centre.
Due to the current COVID situation we are unable to open a condolences book at the surgery. Please send all messages of condolences to the below email address which we will transfer into a book and pass onto her family.
Coronavirus - Latest Guidance
We have now had confirmation that we are due to take delivery of our first batch of COVID vaccinations. We will be running our first clinics on the 16th, 17th and 18th, 19th, 20th and 22st January. Clinics will be at Beighton Medical Centre S20 1BJ.
Directions for the site are found here:
We will contact eligible patients by text or phone so there is no need to ring reception to book an appointment. Please DO NOT ring to try and arrange a vaccination. We will contact you. There is a strict priority list set by government and we will be following this closely.
Please do not worry if you don’t manage to have a vaccination in this first clinic. We are expecting the supply of vaccinations to quickly increase and we have been working hard to ensure that we can provide more and more appointments as this happens.
There is limited parking and waiting around Beighton Medical Centre so when you attend for a vaccination please don’t arrive early and please leave promptly after the 15 minute observation time that is required after your vaccination.
At the medical centre there will be strict social distancing measures in place. There are no refreshments available and patient toilet facilities will not normally be accessible on site so please be prepared for this. You may have to que outside prior to your vaccination especially at busy times. The 15 minute observation area is inside in a waiting room and is comfortable.
Our COVID clinics have filled up in record time. For those of you that have received a text message but have been unable to book please try again later as we will be adding further clinics. If you are over 75 years old and still haven’t heard from us please don’t worry. We will be contacting you ASAP.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from Monday 24 August 2020.
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
