Welcome to Reading Walk-in Health Centre (dated 14th October 2020)

As part of the CCG’s Winter planning and COVID-19 response, please note the CCG have reinstated the Reading Walk-in Centre (WIC) service with effect from Wednesday 14th October 2020.

The service will operate on a booked appointment basis only via NHS 111 – patients will only be booked into Walk-in Centre appointments when they cannot be directed to their own practice. 

Please note if you present at the centre without a prior appointment you will be triaged on the door by a clinician and referred either to your GP or NHS 111 unless you have life threatening symptoms.

Therefore please do not arrive directly at the Walk-in Centre.

Flu Campaign for patients aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical risk group – dated 10th September 2020

Please note, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and are not in a clinical risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine.  No appointments will be offered for people in this group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Registered Patients

Please ensure you update us of any change in address or contact telephone number. Failure to do so may affect your registration. Contact Reception by pressing option one for further information.

If you are unable to provide proof of address at the time of your registration you will have 3 months to provide us with the required documentation otherwise we will deregister you without notification. If you experience any difficulty obtaining this information we are here to help. You should speak to Reception as soon as you can to enable us to support and advise you of your best options.

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a NHS service that allows us to send your prescription(s) directly to your chosen pharmacy. This paper-free prescription service means that you do not have to come into the surgery to collect your prescription.

We encourage all patients to register for this free service, which can be arranged directly with the pharmacy when collecting your medication. Alternatively, you can ask at reception.
