Due to the Coronavirus all GP appointments are now telephone appointments which may include video. Do not come into the surgery but stay by your telephone.  Please visit https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ for further advice before visiting the surgery. Thank you for your co-operation under the current circumstances.

Patient Access Appointments - Update 09.03.2020

As a precautionary measure, we have been advised by NHS England with immediate effect to remove all patient accessible appointments which are bookable online. However, we have added the facility to book telephone appointments through patient access as an alternative.

For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances.  These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19

Clinical Waste Collection

Update from Bracknell Forest Council

If you require a clinical waste collection, please make sure you are registered by email, rather than a letter through the post.

Clinical Waste registration form

The template for letters of authorisation will still need to be filled out with the details of the resident. However, we ask that the letter is filled out electronically and attached to an email alongside of a brief explanation as to why the resident requires a clinical waste collection.

Please note that incontinence pads, sanitary materials, disposable nappies and dressings from non-infectious wounds are not regarded as clinical waste and can be placed in the green domestic refuse bin as general waste. If you require a second green domestic refuse bin for this waste you can apply for one online https://www.bracknell-forest.gov.uk/bins-and-recycling/forms/make-green-bin-enquiry or by calling customer services on 01344 352000.
