We are recruiting for a Medical Receptionist /Dispensary Assistant. Please see the Recruitment Page(Number 10 on the quick links)
Asthma care and advice on inhaler techniques are available from the doctors during normal afternoon surgery.
Advice on diabetic care is available from the doctors and practice nurse. Appointments can be made for our bi-monthly clinic.
For health checks, contraception, cervical cytology and breast checks appointments can made with the practice nurse or with the doctor during normal surgery, Our doctors also offer coil fitting and routine checks.
Patients are invited to come and see the nurse to check Blood Pressure, Weight and Height, Cholesterol Levels (if necessary) and general lifestyle (diet, exercise etc) and to ask any health-related questions they may have.
Routine and travel immunisations can be arranged with the practice nurse. Many immunisations need to be given 3 - 4 weeks before departure. Please speak to the nurse well in advance of travelling.
We recommend you discuss this with your doctor or health visitor so you can plan full protective immunisation for your child. Clinics may vary:
All doctors provide regular checks during pregnancy. A fortnightly Ante Natal Clinic is held with the GP and the District Midwife.
Parentcraft sessions are organised by the district midwives. There are also Post Natal support groups run by the health visitor four times a year.
Developmental Screening is a service shared between the doctors and health visitor. Babies are seen by a doctor at six weeks when their mothers come for their post natal examinations and again at three and a half years. Regular screening is carried out by the health visitor throughout the pre-school years.
The doctors undertake some minor surgical procedures. Please discuss any problems with one of the doctors.
Our practice nurse provides advice, information and support to patients with high blood pressure.
We are a team of 3 experienced nurses with a wide variety of skills and training.
As part of the medical team, our role is to work with and support the Doctors in providing a wide ranging nursing and medical service.
Our clinics run independently providing all types of nursing care; they will include general investigations, treatments, medication and vaccine administration, travel health, preventative screening programmes as well as more specialised monitoring of patients with long-term conditions.
Nurse clinics are available Monday- Friday. In addition to routine nursing and screening, Jane Selwood has undergone additional specialist training in diabetes and family planning.
Please be advised that you will be asked to attend West Berkshire Community Hospital (WBCH) for blood tests.
Phlebotomy is not part of GP core services and as such provision for patients in Newbury & District CCG has been made for this service at WBCH.
We provide a very limited in-house service for patients that have a serious difficulty, as assessed by a clinician, in attending WBCH and for some specific long term condition reviews. Our appointments in-house are in very short supply and unfortunately we do not have the resource to extend this service routinely for all patients.
To book an appointment at WBCH
Please contact the phlebotomy department on 01635 273343 or book online at https://wbch.sangix.co.uk
You must take your blood form with you to your appointment.
If urgent blood tests have been requested by your GP this will have been noted on your blood form and you will be able to attend WBCH without an appointment.

The following vaccinations are given in surgery by the Practice Nurses . The Health Visitor will give you some information about this after your baby is born and further details can be found in your ‘Red Book’ which we ask you to bring with you when you come to see us. We will fill this in for you and this enables you to keep a clear record of your childs’ immunisation progress.
It is also possible to register for a free text reminder service here: http://www.pfizervaccines.co.uk/public-home/help-support/reminder-service.aspx
The Vaccinations below are NOT part of the surgery based programme and are given in school by the School Nurses.
It is preferable that the full course of TWO doses of Rotavirus vaccine be completed BEFORE 16 weeks of age, allowing at least four weeks between the first and second dose.
Infants OLDER than 15 weeks who have not received their first dose should not be commenced.
Infants who receive the first dose BEFORE 15 weeks should complete the course by 24 weeks of age.
If the course is interrupted, it should be resumed (but not repeated) PROVIDED that the second dose can be given BEFORE the 24 week cut off.
Please telephone the surgery to arrange a travel appointment.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below and it would be useful if you could look up the area you are travelling to so you have some idea of vaccinations required before attending to see the nurse, especially for complicated itineries:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
