We have a Bronze Award from Armed Forces Recognition Scheme
We are pleased to announce that Marisco has received the Bronze Award from the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS).
Marisco signed the Armed Forces Covenant in 2015 pledging to endeavour in all business proceedings to uphold the key principles of the covenant and support the Armed Forces community. The covenant acts as a recognition of the sacrifices made by the Armed Forces and in return pledges respect, support, and fair treatment. Since signing the covenant, Marisco has just been awarded the Bronze Award from the Armed Forces Employer Recognition Scheme.
Flu is a common infectious viral illness spread by coughs and sneezes. You can catch flu – short for influenza – all year round, but it's especially common in winter, which is why it's also known as "seasonal flu".
It's not the same as the common cold. Flu usually starts more suddenly, is more severe and lasts longer. For more information please visit Seasonal Flu on our Help and Information page.
Sit and Wait Clinics
To see a doctor or nurse please telephone us or come into the surgery to book an appointment. If your condition is a new illness (less than 3 weeks) or you are having an acute episode of a pre-existing condition, feel free to pop down to our "sit & wait" clinics held Monday through to Friday mornings at our Mablethorpe branch. Patients are seen in order of arrival however should an emergency arise they will take priority.
Free Bus Service to Louth Hospital
A new, free bus service to Louth is now in place, funded by the Costal Community Challenge, Mablethorpe Christian Fellowship and Rotary Club. This service operates between Mablethorpe North end (Sandilands) and Louth County Hospital. The aim of the community bus is to ensure relatives/friends, who do not have access to a vehicle, are able to visit patients in Louth hospital. The bus service will operate as a free, door-to-door service and seats can be booked by contacting Nigel Collins on 07775 844206. See Free Bus Service to Louth Hospital.

Hearing impairment and Translation service
