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


NHS England are  recommending that all travellers who develop cough, fever, shortness of breath within 14 days of returning from  China,Thailand, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Italy or Macau or have come into contact with someone,  should self-isolate at home immediately and contact above website or  call NHS 111

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.
