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

 

From Monday 6 August 2018 additional GP appointments will be available, initially from 6 – 8 pm on weekday evenings, 8 – 12 am on Saturdays and 10 – 2 pm on Sundays.  These extra sessions will be provided at Binscombe Surgery near Godalming, and at the Fairlands Practice in Guildford.  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, via their own GP practice.

MEASLES OUTBREAK

There is currently an outbreak of measles in Surrey. There are also confirmed measles outbreaks in Liverpool, Leeds and the West Midlands. There are also several large measles outbreaks across Europe, with Romania, Italy, Germany and Greece being the worst affected countries, and so there is a continued risk of imported cases. If you or your child have previously missed a scheduled measles vaccination or suspect that you may not be protected, please book an appointment so that full protection is in place.

*****PLEASE TELEPHONE THE SURGERY IN ADVANCE IF YOU SUSPECT A CASE OF MEASLES. SHOULD THERE BE A NEED TO ATTEND, YOU WILL BE ADVISED OF THIS.*****

Any patients with fever and a rash are potentially infectious and if advised to attend,this will be at the end of surgery to reduce the risk of transmission. Where patients with a fever and rash attend when other patients are in the waiting room, they will be directed to a side room. 

Please see the link below for signs and symptoms

NHS HEALTHCHECKS

We are delighted to announce that NHS Healthchecks are now available at Woodbridge Hill Surgery. Please see the information below for more information about this beneficial check. You can book an appointment for this before receiving your invitation but you must be eligible for the check. If you are not sure if you are eligible, reception staff can confirm this for you.

If you already have one of the conditions listed below you will unfortunately be ineligible. You must also be aged 40-74.

  • Diabetes type 2
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Stroke
  • Dementia

What is an NHS Health Check?

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It's designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.

How do I get an NHS Health Check?

If you're in the 40-74 age group without a pre-existing condition, you can expect to receive a letter from your GP or local authority inviting you for a free NHS Health Check every five years. In the meantime, there are other ways of getting your health checked, and you may want to try this online Heart Age test.

How can I improve my test results?

Once you've had your NHS Health Check, your healthcare professional will discuss your results with you. You'll be given advice to help you lower your risk of a stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, diabetes or dementia, and maintain or improve your health. But you don't have to wait until then to make healthy changes. Take the How Are You quiz and start now with these health apps and trackers
