We are a group of patients of the practice who are passionate about supporting the practice in its aims to deliver high quality medical care in a professional, yet friendly, patient-centred and compassionate manner to the people of Mablethorpe and the surrounding area.
One of our roles is to represent patient views and opinions about the services available at the practice, but we also offer many other services for Marisco patients.
We meet every 8 - 12 weeks at Mablethorpe to discuss changes and improvements to the NHS that may effect patients. Members also report back on other meetings that they have attended on a variety of health related subjects.
We do not deal with individual medical or personal complaints, these being dealt with by the practices own existing procedures, but we do put forward ideas and recommendations from members.
Members come from a wide range of backgrounds and share their experience and knowledge with each other and the practice who also consult with us and receive feedback on current and future plans.
Anyone registered as a patient at Marisco Medical Practice can become a member of the Marisco Patient Group. All you need to do is let the practice know that you want to join and they will pass your name and contact details (Only) to us and we will be in touch soon.
Alternatively please complete the form on the contact page and we will reply by return.
We actively look at how we can connect people to information and organisations that can help support wellness and managing existing conditions. We are also looking at how we might be able to support other health and wellbeing organisations to make their services known to the patients of Mablethorpe, Sutton On Sea and the surrounding villages.
Services we currently provide (at Mablethorpe unless stated otherwise) include:-
Refreshments within the practice 5 mornings per week between 9am and 12pm
Provision of Hearing Aid Batteries from the practice 5 mornings per week, and at Sutton on Monday afternoons.

Have sponsored free transport to the surgery on Wednesday mornings for those wishing to attend Magna Vitae's Still Me / Recollections activity mornings which are on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month.
We host Job Centre Plus and Citizens Advice every Wednesday morning in the Information Centre so that those looking for informal advice on getting back into work and a whole number of other issues can do so easily and confidentially.

ELAP provide help with Benefits, Universal Credit, Consumer Advice, Civil Matters, Debt Solutions and Referrals, Employment Advice, Rights & Mediation, Family Issues including CSA/CMO, Housing Options, Homelessness Advice, Powers of Attorney, Income Maximisation & Budgeting.
The practice now has 12 clinicians on its books (GP's and Advance Nurse Practitioners or ANP's), so more patients are now being seen in morning 'Sit & Wait' surgeries every day.
Morning surgery starts at 8.30am and the practice are concerned that patients are still queuing before the doors open at 8am. The practice advises that if you want to use the Sit & Wait service, the best time to arrive is between 8.30am and 9am. Yes, you might have to wait a while, but you will be seen that morning
