About the Practice

The Puzey Family Practice was formed on 1st May 2005 and named so in recognition of the long dedicated service given to the residents of Rochford by Dr Angela Puzey MBE who, along with Drs Bone, Edwards, Fisher and Timmins, commissioned the building of the premises in 1984.

Southwell House is named in memory of Dr Ben Southwell. It houses two completely separate practices.

Our patients should only attend Windows 2 and 3.

We provide full access and facilities for disabled patients (see below).

Practice News

Information from the Care Quality Commission

Our practice is inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure we are meeting essential standards of quality and safety.

This widget provides a summary of the results of the latest checks carried out by the CQC.

Health Conditions A to Z

Important information: Rochford Medical Practice – the GP partnership of Dr Bajen and Dr Blasco.

Following ongoing CQC concerns, a mutual decision has been taken by senior partners at Rochford Medical Practice and NHS Castle Point and Rochford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to end a contract to provide primary medical services (GP services).  The decision is supported by NHS England and the Local Medical Committee (LMC).

In light of the immediate nature of this decision, alternative arrangements have been agreed by the CCG with the co-located GP surgery to ensure continuity of GP services.

As of Monday morning (18 June 2018), patients currently registered at the Rochford Medical Practice will be treated by doctors from the neighbouring GP surgery The Puzey Family practice, who share the same building (Southwell House). 

Patients are advised to attend any pre-booked appointments and order any new repeat prescriptions in the same way. Please continue to use the Rochford Medical Practice website for online prescriptions.

The same switchboard number will remain open, so patients should continue to call the usual number.

NHS Castle Point and Rochford CCG and Southend CCG Chief Nurse Tricia D’Orsi said: “As commissioners it is our priority to ensure that continuity of GP services is maintained for the patients registered at Rochford Medical Practice. We want to reassure patients that there will be minimal impact on their services.”

Dr Bajen, GP and Senior Partner at Rochford Medical Practice said: “My priority remains the welfare of my patients and this will ensure a continuous and uninterrupted service for them.  I would like to thank the practice staff for all their hard work and patients for their support and understanding at this time.”

Although registered patients at Rochford Medical Practice have transferred to The Puzey Family Practice automatically (and therefore do not need to personally register), they can approach alternative practices should they wish to. 

You can put your postcode into the NHS.uk website to find information about your nearest GP surgeries. You can find lots of information to help you choose. This includes how many GPs each practice has, their opening hours, what services they offer, and also how they’ve performed in inspections and what their patients think of them. Speak to the Practice Manager of your preferred GP practice to find out how to register.

NHS Castle Point and Rochford CCG will be writing to all patients with further information.

Our priority is to ensure minimal disruption to patients and high quality services delivered at all times.
