“Providing good quality care for all the family”
We are a GP training practice and carry out research in conjunction with the Royal Berkshire Hospital and the Universities of Oxford and Southampton.
We provide a high quality service and achieved 578 out of a possible 635 points on the government Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) in 2021/2022.
We offer a wide range of appointments throughout the day with doctors, nurses, healthcare assistants, pharmacist, physicians associate as well as a variety of other NHS services.
Please note that we offer online booking, pre-bookable appointments of up to 6 weeks in advance and book on the day for patients needing an appointment that day.
We offer extended hours appointments on Monday evening at our Woodley Surgery and Saturday mornings at our Green Road Surgery, with other appointments available throughout the week at our collaborative cluster group of surgeries, please ask reception for available appointments.
DNA (Did not attend):
Unfortunately, we have a high rate of patients who book appointments and do not attend, We are monitoring this and will report on this screen how many DNA’s we have. In the month of February (2023) there were 174. This amounts to 174 appointments lost to patients who may not have been able to access a GP or nurse at a time that suits them. That is 3.1% of all appointments, and at a cost of £5220 to the NHS. Please let us know if you are unable to attend your booked appointment.
In addition to pre-book and book on the day appointments, we offer telephone consultations and a triage system. Triage is the term used for extra appointments when all other bookable appointments have been taken. You will be asked by the reception staff for your contact number and a brief idea as to the nature of your call so that we can deal with your needs in the most appropriate and timely manner. The doctor will call you as soon as practically possible.
