Online access update

Don't forget to request your medication and book your appointments online. We now offer web bookable appointments for blood tests (phlebotomy), INR (warfarin monitoring) and smears (well woman clinics). These should be booked only when a doctor or nurse has requested you have one of these tests or if your smear is due. We will soon be offering web bookable appointments for the pre-school booster vaccination for children.

You are now also able to message your GP via this service. This can be used for simple queries, such as a medication query, checking if you need a blood test/review, results query.

 

New members of staff

Jo Matthews, our new paramedic practitioner has now joined the practice. Jo has years of experience working in the ambulance service and has spent the last year working in GP practice. She will be undertaking home visits, triage, consultations and will be helping to look after our more frail patients.

We also have a new GP, Dr Poorvie Hewa Pathiranage, doing one surgery a week. She is currently a partner in a practice in Borden, and will be increasing her number of surgeries later in the year. She is interested in all aspects of general practice, specialising in women's health and minor surgery. She is also involved in training junior doctors.  

Surgery closure

We will be closed for staff training on 2nd May 2019 from 12.30pm to 4pm.

Extra GP Appointments Available in Evenings and Weekends for Guildford and Waverley Patients

 

GP appointments are available outside of normal surgery hours at Binscombe Surgery near Godalming, at the Fairlands Practice in Guildford, the Villages practice in Send and Merrow Park Surgery.  Patients registered at any GP practice in Guildford and Waverley will be able to book through their own practice and attend at either of these locations.   We are planning to expand the capacity of the service later in the year, including provision of nurse appointments.

This service is part of a national ‘Extended Access’ programme which is being introduced to increase capacity in general practice and make it available to the public 7 days per week.  It is being introduced both in response to increasing pressure on GP services and to provide patients who need to see a health practitioner with evening and weekend access.

Procare Health is the Federation of GP practices in Guildford and Waverley.  We work with all of the GP surgeries on initiatives to develop services and improve experience for patients and staff.  Procare have been commissioned by NHS Guildford and Waverley CCG to provide the Extended Access service in partnership with the two host practices at Binscombe and Fairlands.

Patients can now book appointments using the Extended Access service, at either location, or via their own GP practice.
