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

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

Treatment Rooms

You may see a member of our nursing team by appointment – they offer treatment advice on a wide range of services including:

  • Ear syringing (suspended during COVID)
  • Wound dressing and suture removal
  • Dietary and lifestyle advice
  • Blood pressure testing (during COVID please submit your own results)
  • Immunisation and vaccination – child/adult
  • Smear tests

Other Services Offered

  • Menopause advice
  • Child health surveillance
  • Ante natal care
  • Phlebotomy
  • Family planning
  • Minor surgery 
  • Diabetes clinic
  • Respiratory clinics

  • Flu And Pneumonia Injection Clinics

These are held each year, usually between September and March.  These injections provide valuable protection against flu in at risk patients, such as patients with heart, lung and kidney problems, diabetics and the elderly. 

The pneumonia injection is currently recommended for over 65s and younger people with certain medical conditions who are at risk. 

The Department of Health states that we are not able to provide flu or pneumonia vaccination for our patients who do not fall into the above categories, but we will be able to advise you on where you will be able to obtain the vaccination.

Cervical Screening (Smear Tests)

All women aged 25 to 64 are offered a cervical smear test as part of the national cervical screening programme every 3 years from age 25-49 and every 5 years from age 50-64.  Please note you will be invited by the screening programme and we can not take a smear without  this invitation.

Contraceptive Advice

You can book a telephone appointment with our Practice nurse. Alternatively, you can visit one of the local Pharmacies who offer private consultations, and speak with the Pharmacist, especially if you are in need of Emergency Contraception (Morning After Pill).

Services In Addition To The NHS

An appropriate fee will be charged for services carried out that are not part of the NHS.  A list of fees is displayed in reception.

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.
