Welcome to Wallingford Medical Practice
Situated in the market town of Wallingford, in purpose built premises located next to the Community Hospital we have over 16,000 patients in Wallingford, Cholsey and surrounding villages. We are a dispensing practice, which means that patients living more than a mile from a chemist can collect their medications from our friendly dispensary. We offer a full range of primary care services, with appointments available Monday-Saturday as well as some late evening and Sundays (see the appointments section for details).
There is currently an issue within the clinical system EMIS with the text appointment reminder service which is causing confusion for patients. The text reminder service will be temporarily switched off until the system supplier solve the problem.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE DO NOT OFFER A WALK-IN SERVICE, YOU MUST BOOK AN APPOINTMENT TO BE SEEN
Prescription requests - register for online services via EMIS Patient Access to order repeat prescriptions. Requests coming via Patient Access will be processed faster and can go directly to the pharmacy (or our dispensary, if applicable). For more details of how to register for online services, please see the 'Online Services' page of our website.
Booking an appointment on-line - Registering for online services via EMIS Patient Access allows you to make appointments online. Booking your appointment on-line means you have access to all of the available GP appointments so have the same options as ringing or coming to the surgery to book. You can even download an app to your smartphone, allowing you to make an appointment whilst out and about. For more details of how to register for online services, please see the 'Online Services' page of our website.
Late evening and weekend appointments availability - As part of the government’s pledge to provide a 7 day NHS they have proposed a pilot scheme which will provide additional access to patients during evenings and at weekends. See the appointments section for further details.
Wallingford Community Hospital ward cover is being provided by Dr Walker from Tuesday 3rd April - Friday 29th June. Dr Walker will have reduced appointment availability during this time to care for the patients at Wallingford Hospital. All Partners share the responsibility for this on a 3 month rota basis and we will keep you informed as it changes. You will be offered an appointment with another GP if Dr Walker does not have an appointment available.
We would like to tell you about the Health Walks being arranged through Wallingford Medical Centre Patient Participation Group. These walks are for beginners to mid experienced walkers - walks take about an hour. The pace will be slightly more than a gentle stroll, so that we can benefit from the exercise, thus not advisable if you have any injury/medical condition that prevents this. Walks start at The Wallingford Medical Practice Entrance at 10.30 on frequent Saturday mornings.
THE HEALTH WALKS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS. THE NEXT WALK WILL BE IN SEPTEMBER, DATES WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON.
