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. 

We no longer offer Travel advice & Clinics. You  will need to go to your local Travel Clinic for this advice or go online to a travel Website such as fit-for-travel 

Living with a health condition? Free NHS Self Management Courses are now available for people living in Bracknell. Please visit out Latest News section for further information

Sandhurst Group Practice Patient Participation Group

The Sandhurst and Owlsmoor Patient Participation Group, founded in September 2009 is made up of members of the Sandhurst and Owlsmoor community, some with experience in health, social care and education, all of whom are concerned to work with the Sandhurst Group Practice to ensure the best possible service for the people of the area.

More specifically, the Group’s Terms of Reference state that its objectives shall be to:

  • provide feedback from patients to the Practice and vice-versa
  • promote the services offered by the Practice
  • encourage the provision and development of high-quality healthcare and health education
  • promote good relations with the Clinical Commissioning Group and other appropriate bodies in the field of healthcare and health education

Meetings, attended both by members of the Group and representatives of the staff of the Practice, are held six times a year. There is an Annual General Meeting to which all patients of the Practice are invited. Any patient may put themselves forward for membership of the Group, which is normally composed of a maximum of 15 patient members.

There is also a sub-group which is responsible for communicating information to patients online on behalf of the Sandhurst Group Practice PPG and for devising and conducting patient surveys. Subjects of past surveys have included services offered by the Practice and by local pharmacies, the Practice’s telephone and appointments systems, Frimley Park’s Accident & Emergency service and arrangements for out-of-hours care.

From time to time the Sandhurst Group Practice PPG also arranges informative events, held in local Sandhurst and Owlsmoor venues, with speakers, demonstrations and information stalls. Recent subjects have included emergency services, healthy eating, young people and drugs, long-term and elderly care.

You can contact us by leaving a message at either site with reception on 01252 877322 /01344 751184 . You can also send a message directly to the members of the group by clicking on the tab above.
