New telephone system
Having listened to patient feedback we have taken a decision to replace our antiquated telephone system and purchase a whole new one. We expect the system will be in operation in a couple of months’ time and are hopeful this will improve telephone access to the surgery.
FLU INJECTIONS ARE HERE!
OUR FIRST FLU CLINIC WILL TAKE PLACE ON 30TH SEPTEMBER
PLEASE CALL 01932 414 139 TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT IF YOU ARE IN ONE OF THE 'AT RISK' GROUPS
Car parking – Due to the recent fire at Weybridge Hospital, the two surgeries have relocated to Walton Hospital. As a result there is an increased pressure on the parking spaces in our car park. We apologise for the inconvenience.
For your convenience and to reduce the queues in the morning we have released more appointments online. They will be available daily from 7.30am.
We now have a patient call screen on the wall in the waiting room so doctors will no longer call patients using the Tannoy system.
Treatment Room Reception Closure
As of the 1st April the Treatment Room Reception will close and the GP Reception will incorporate Treatment Room Reception.
- For all GP and Treatment Room appointments please call 01932 414 139.
- For Treatment Room appointments please call after 9.30am.
The flu vaccination is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications. For more information please visit NHS Choices website http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/vaccinations/Pages/flu-influenza-vaccine.aspx.

On August 21st the practice went live on a new clinical system called 'EMIS Web'. All practices in the Surrey area are moving to this clinical system and it enables the practice to participate in many new e-based health initiatives as they become available. Please be aware that our staff have had to master the new system whilst managing their normal busy workload - we thank you for your understanding during this time!
