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.

Notice to patients. When booking an appointment for the Doctor or Nurse the Partners have requested that receptionist staff ask what the appointment is for. This is to ensure you are booked with the most appropriate person. 

Routine Pre-bookable Appointments:

These can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance and are suitable if you do not need to be seen urgently, want a convenient time for you and want to specify a particular doctor. Our extended hours appointments on a Tueday evening, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings are also pre-bookable up to 4 weeks in advance.    There are various times allocated to these appointments for the doctors and the nurses in the mornings, afternoons and early evening.

Book on the Day Appointments: 

These are only available on the day you want to be seen and are booked from 8.00am when the appointment line opens. They are suitable for you if you can come to the surgery when there is an available appointment and you do not mind which doctor you see. There are only a fixed number each day and when they are gone they are gone!

Telephone Appointments:

If you would like to speak to a doctor or nurse on the telephone and do not feel that you need an appointment to be seen you can ask for a telephone appointment. These may also be used if you feel you need advice from a doctor urgently but all book on day appointments are gone. Please be reassured that if on talking to you the doctor feels that you need to be seen they will invite you to come in.
