General Practice

Our centre gives you additional choice and greater access to healthcare in Reading offering a full general practice for registered patients. The general practice offers pre-bookable appointments to its registered patients.

We offer online services to registered patients which allows you to request services such as repeat prescriptions or appointments at a time that is convenient for you.

Walk-in Centre

Our walk-in centre offers treatment, information and advice for a range of minor illnesses and injuries. Anyone can use our walk-in service, you do not need to be a GP registered patient.

There are no pre-bookable appointments on the walk-in service, simply book in at reception. Please be aware that some patients are called out of turn, depending on clinical need.

The walk-in centre will only repeat the following types of medication (with evidence):

  • Contraception
  • Diabetic Medications
  • Blood Pressure Medications
  • Warfarin
  • Asthma Medications
  • Epilepsy Medication

If you are attending for the administration of injectable medication you will require a letter signed by a clinician giving us the authority to do so.

Over the counter medications no longer available on prescription

As from the 31st May 2018 medicines which are readily available to buy from local pharmacies, shops or supermarkets for children or adults will NO longer be available on prescription. Please see the Prescriptions page for more information.

Patients attending the walk-in centre for dressing changes are advised to attend between 10am and 6pm. Please be aware that not all wounds require daily dressings. The Reading Walk-In Health Centre is unable to perform compression dressings due to their specialised nature; therefore you will need to book an appointment with your own GP surgery to see the practice nurse or discuss alternative arrangements e.g. the district nursing service.
