Book GP Appointments

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Your GP practice is open and if you need to see your GP, please contact us on 01753 864545 for patients from The Dedworth Medical Centre Practice or on 01753 864545 for patients from The South Meadow Surgery, so we can triage your appointment.

Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery

Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.

If you are waiting for a check-up, please be assured we will be in touch

For serious or life threatening emergencies call 999, alternatively call 111.

Nursing appointments will continue as planned but we ask you to consider the national guidance before visiting the practice https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Home Visits

Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years

Extended Access

General Practice Hub: evening and weekend appointments now available

Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday) and can be booked up to one week ahead. Appointments take place at the GP Hub, King Edward VII Hospital although may occasionally be offered for St Marks Hospital, Maidenhead. Please book these appointments in the usual way through our Reception team.

The Clinicians you see will have the same access to your medical records as clinicians at here at the Practice.

These appointments are for routine general practice issues only and not for urgent care.  If urgent care is required outside of our opening times please call 111 for advice.

This 'General Practice Hub' service is part of a national initiative to improve access to general practice. 

Training Practice

We are now an approved GP Training Practice within the Oxford Deanery, accredited to help train qualified doctors to become GPs. From August 2011 we will have GP Trainees working in the surgery for various periods of time during their 3 year vocational qualification to become a GP.

These doctors will be seeing patients like any of our GPs, but under the supervision of one of the GPs in the Practice.

For the purposes of training, some consultations (but not examinations) with the Registrar will be videotaped, but patients will be informed and have the option to opt out of having the consultation recorded. Any consultations recorded will be treated in the strictest confidence and only used for training purposes.

As a Practice we are all committed to the on-going education of doctors wishing to become GPs and hope that our patients will be as willing and understanding.

Our current trainees are Dr Saddaf Prosser & Dr Suchira McCarthy GP Registrars meaning they are fully qualified doctors who have made the deicision to specialise in General Practice. They will mainly be based at Dedworth Medical Centre, but you may see them at South Meadow Surgery at times as well.

 

Cancel an Appointment

It is important that you inform the reception staff if you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. If you fail to notify the Practice that you are unable to attend, you will be sent a letter informing you that you have defaulted from your appointment. Persistent defaulters maybe removed from the list.

You can also complete our appointment cancellation notification request form. This can only be used if your appointment has been arranged for more than 24 hours in advance. (excluding weekends and public holidays). You can also text to cancel your appointment.

Text Reminder Service

We have a texting service which allows you to receive confirmation and reminders about your appointments.

To have this service you will need to register by completing a consent form.

Please remember to update your contact details with us when you change address, telephone numbers and email address.
