Noticeboard

A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests.

Anyone who needs an urgent blood test will still get one but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date. 

From 19 July face coverings will still be required when entering any site of Sandhurst Group Practice, unless you are exempt. In line with official public health advice, measures remain in place across all healthcare services to protect patients, visitors and staff. 

From Monday 19th July our doors will be open again from 08:30am  

On the day appointments will be available on the telephone from 8am - we encourage everyone who is phoning for anything other than on the day GP appointments to phone after 9:30am - thank you for your understanding

The latest news section directs you how to obtain a Vaccine Passport 

(this is not available through the GP surgery)

Please be ready to give your Date of Birth and a SHORT description of why you require a consultation immediately you get through - this will help us deal with you quickly 

 Please note that Face Coverings & Mask Exemption Letter Requests will be refused as Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption. For further information please follow  this link Face Mask Exemption Poster.             

                         Please call 111 for help and advise 

  Your local A&E is experiencing longer delays than usual, so to help us (and to avoid a long wait) we would ask that you only attend there or call 999 in a serious or life-threatening emergency.

OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON PRESCRIPTION PLEASE SEE LATEST NEWS

 Our Home Visits are now carried out by Paramedics - they will have ID for checking and will arrive in  normal transport.  They have full access to your notes and will be communicating with your Named GP.  Please request a Home Visit through Reception as normal.  The Paramedic may phone to check your symptoms and the emergency beforehand, so make sure we have your correct contact details.

Sign-Posting

For all appointments, to help the receptionist sign post you, you will be asked to give a short explanation of why you need any appointment.  This is to ensure you get to the right person to deal with your problem.  If your problem is of a sensitive nature please let the receptionist know that your problem is personal and they will record this for the clinician.

Booking Appointments on Line -

We are though releasing a small amount of telephone bookable appointments online

On-line appointments should be used for Routine only.  If in doubt please contact reception.

We regret we can't offer Nursing appointments on-line.   Many of Nurses are specialists and not all Nursing staff can offer the same appointments.

Sandhurst Group Practice have replaced our extended hours appointments with e-consults. These take place outside surgery times. If you submit an e-consult the GP may contact you outside normal hours.

We also offer pre-booked face to face appointments every-evening and on a Saturday & Sunday at a Central location in Bracknell close to the Train & Bus Stations.  These are bookable through the surgery.  Please contact reception for more details.

please copy and paste link for more details

Telephone appointments are available from a number of sources – doctor, nurse,  Pharmascist, Paramedic etc.

It would be helpful if you explain the nature of your query to the receptionist who will then be able to advise you who to contact and when they may be available.
