Emergency messages regarding the surgery can be found here:
We are currently advertising for a part-time Medical Receptionist - details can be found on NHS jobs.
Please note - The Out of hours system has changed between 6 30 pm and 8 am - the answerphone now advises you to hang up and dial 111 for the NHS 111 service. Calls are free from both landlines and mobiles. For life threatening emergencies, please dial 999.
Can we please request that patients do not park on the road or verges of Back Ends as this blocks the bus route and also please do not block our neighbours' drives. Many thanks.
We have introduced a number of measures to help with waiting times for appointments over the busy winter period. We will detail the new services in our next newsletter.
Please see the link to the new website for Gloucestershire Joining up your Information - item 10 on the further information section of our website.
Dr Bointon's retirement
Thank you to all of the patients who joined Dr Bointon and the team to say farewell on Wednesday 11th November at the town hall - Dr Bointon very much appreciated all of your kind words. Dr Bointon's last day was Monday 7th December.
Dr Charnjit Supria has now joined the practice - please see the practice staff page for more information.
For self help information - patients can download the app: ASAP Glos NHS.
See the research section in the policies tab for information about the National Diabetes audit.
See the update on the Prime Minister's challenge fund for Glos on the appointments tab.
A patient Group meeting will be held on Wednesday 16th March 2016 at the surgery. If you are not already part of the patient group and would like to get involved please speak to reception. We correspond mainly by e-mail and hold occasional meetings at the practice.
Health visitor drop in clinic started in February 2015 - see "clinics and services" for details.
We now have our new surgery entrance door. This is to assist with easier access for patients and is also self-closing.
Patient views - you can complete a Friends and Family survey on-line or in the practice for each visit to the surgery. Please see the link under "Friends and Family test" on the right hand side of this page. We have received lots of positive feedback via this survey. You can also visit NHS choices to add feedback on the practice.
Information has been added to the website for the "EPS - electronic prescriptions service" and "Urgent Repeat medicines service" (on the prescriptions page) and the "Keep safe scheme" and "My cancer treatment" website (on the further information list).
We are now able to book urgent patients into a new GP clinic at Moreton-in-marsh surgery, covering all of the local practices. This is not a drop in service and is only via appointment via our receptionists to ensure you meet the criteria and is only available on certain days of the week.
We are currently experiencing an extremely high level of demand for GP appointments and home visits. We have booked locum GP surgeries (with GP locums we use regularly and who know the surgery well) to try and help with demand. Please only request a home visit if you need medical treatment and are housebound. Routine appointments with GP's can be booked up to 8 weeks in advance if your problem is not urgent.
Out of Hours 01386 841894
Your call will be answered by the NHS 111 medical answering service. They will contact the most appropriate service for your symptoms.
In order to avoid blocking the line at busy times, we would ask you to ring for test results after 2pm weekdays on 841894. The doctor will have left a message for the receptionists to access on your notes.
If a visit is required, please try and phone early in the day. The doctor may telephone before visiting. Home visits are available for those patients who are housebound and in need of medical treatment.
