Morning surgeries are aimed at meeting the needs of patients who have an urgent problem which should be dealt with quickly. Please phone on the day (before 10:00 am) we will do our best to accommodate you. A limited number of appointments can be pre-booked.
Afternoon surgeries are for issues which require more investigations or discussion, as well as medication reviews and check-ups for new patients.
We offer later appointments (to 20:00) on some Wednesdays (Woolton Hill) and some Thursdays (Kintbury). Also some Saturday mornings.
Minor casualties can be seen and dealt with at the surgery, but more serious problems will be transferred to Newbury, Reading or Basingstoke Hospital. Please telephone for advice.
National Training Scheme for GPs
From time to time we will be joined by young doctors, called Registrars, who are training to become General Practitioners. They are fully qualified doctors of several years standing with experience in various hospital departments. In the first few weeks of training, you may meet the Registrar sitting in with one of the Partners or the practice nurses. Later, as they gain experience, they will hold their own surgeries and you may see one instead of your usual GP. If this bothers you at all please tell the receptionist.
