SHARING YOUR INFORMATION WITH OTHER HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

We will be asking every patient if they are happy to share their medical record with other users of the same clinical system. This is for the purpose of giving you the correct treatment if you attend a walk in centre or other healthcare provider.  

Success Centres at Moredon Medical Centre & Swindon NHS Health Centre - during periods of limited appointments patients may be offered alternative appointments at one of Swindon’s Success Centre's based at Moredon Medical Centre and Swindon NHS Health Centre. Reception staff will be able to book you directly into a booked GP appointment at the centre. These appointments are for minor ailments and not ongoing medical conditions. There are now additional GP appointments, operating on Saturdays and Sundays from 8am-8pm at Moredon Medical Centre and Swindon NHS Health Centre.

Text Reminder of Appointments - patients will now receive a text message reminder of their appointments at the surgery, the surgery would be grateful if patients could keep us informed of any changes to their mobile numbers.

Card Payments - Patients are advised that the surgery does not accept card payments. All payments should be by cash or cheque.

Fundraising Support

Ashington House Surgery is supporting Intercare Medical Aid for Africa

Intercare are a charity whose work involves sending unused medication and equipment to Africa where millions of people have to go without treatment for everyday illnesses. Intercare supports 121 health units in Ghana, Camerooon, Tanzania, Zambia, Sierra Leione and Malawi. The charity has so far sent more than £10million worth of medicines to these countries but more help is still needed.

The charity will accept any unopened medications, complete strips of tablets within their original packaging, injections which do not need refrigeration, creams, eye drops/ointments, dressings and bandages. All medicines need at least 15 months expiry dates.

The charity does not accept controlled drugs, glass bottles, incomplete strips of tablets, items that require refrigeration or used syringes or needles.

Ashington House Surgery would like our patients to support us with this charity, if you have any medications that are still in date that you no longer use or need, please bring them into the surgery and we will arrange a collection by Intercare.

Should you have any questions or queries please speak to reception.
