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).
CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS WE ARE CLOSED ON:
December 23, 24, 25, 26 and January 1
Please ensure you have enough medication for this period.
We must receive your repeat medication request no later than
FRIDAY 8TH DECEMBER 2017
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE DO NOT OFFER A WALK-IN SERVICE, YOU MUST BOOK AN APPOINTMENT TO BE SEEN
SEASONAL FLU VACCINATION - BOOKING NOW. Please ring 01491 835577 AFTER 10:30 AM to book an appointment - you must be eligible for a free vaccine. Additional dates announced soon.
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. Click Here to see the rota of surgeries involved and the days they will cover from April - September.
Wallingford Community Hospital ward cover is being provided by Dr Henry from the 2nd October - 31st December. Dr Henry 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 Henry does not have an appointment available.
