Noticeboard

Dr Chris Boardman will be leaving at the end of March 2019 due to relocation.

From Monday 11th February 2019 our Home Visits will be carried out by our new Paramedic - he will have ID for checking and will arrive in a normal car.  He has 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.

Go to our Latest News page to read about our New Nurse Practitioner minor illness clinics to help ease the pressure for appointments.

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.  Some larger Chemists also offer Travel Clinics.

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

At our recent CQC inspection our rating was 'GOOD' in all areas

  You are able to book appointments online and view your medical records as well as order repeat prescriptions to be delivered straight to the chemist of your choice.  Registration is via our prescription page.  For security reasons we ask you to bring into surgery proof of name and address, plus photo ID.

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.

Appointment Types

We offer routine appointments and urgent appointments.  Pre-bookable appointments can be booked at any time, book on the session appointments can be booked morning or afternoon on the day you wish to have an appointment. 

Booking Appointments on Line

Booking appointments on-line are convenient for you and the book on session appointments will appear earlier on-line that can be obtained in the surgery or by telephone.  Please see our Patient Access page for all details of how to sign up for on-line services.  Please note you can only book on-line with your own registered GP.

Please note that any 'special' appointment such as medicals should not be booked on-line.  Medicals require paperwork to be completed beforehand, some contraception appointments may need prescriptions for devises to be fitted. 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 for similar reasons.  Many of Nurses are specialists and not all Nursing staff can offer the same appointments.

Medical Emergencies

If your need is a Medical emergency, all our appointments are booked and the problem will not wait for the afternoon or following day -  we can offer you  ‘5 minute’ Medical Emergency appointments after both morning and afternoon surgeries.  These can only allocated as an overflow clinic when all book on the session appointments have been taken, morning or afternoon. You will need to attend and wait to be seen by the first free GP. This will be a triage appointment and you may be asked to attend to see your own GP at a later date if the GP feels this is more appropriate.   Please note that this may not be at the site you are registered with and we can not guarantee who the GP will be.

We offer these appointments as an extra and please ask patients to help us and other patients by not abusing these appointments when the problem would have waited for the next appointment.  These should not be used for prescriptions, referral chasing or minor ailments such as coughs and colds.

If you have a specific requirement for a routine appointment at a particular time of day, we recommend that you book in advance.  If your problem is more pressing, we can offer you a sooner appointment, but you may have to ring back and the timing of the appointment will be more restrictive.

Extended Hours Appointments

Sandhurst Group Practice offer a mix of early morning and late night phone consultations.  7:30-8am & 6:30-7pm.  These are 10 minute pre- booked appointments  These appointments are aimed at those patients who find it difficult to contact the surgery during normal opening 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.

Telephone Appointments for Advice

If you feel your problems can be dealt with over the phone we offer daily telephone appointments throughout the day.

Telephone appointments are available from a number of sources – doctor, nurse, health visitor, practice manager, 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.
