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 on average 35 missed appointment a 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. From 1 August 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.

There are two bank holidays in May when the surgery will be closed. On the afternoon on 9 May the surgery will be closed from 13:00 for staff training. Full details here.

Our Practice list is temporarily closed to new registrations and temporary residents. The Practice is not accepting any new patient registrations, except for newborn babies who are immediate family of patients already registered at the Practice.
