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).
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE DO NOT OFFER A WALK-IN SERVICE, YOU MUST BOOK AN APPOINTMENT TO BE SEEN
DOCTOR CHANGES - Dr Hughes and Dr Cornell are retiring at the beginning of April 2019, memory books are available at the reception desk for patients who would like to send a message to either of them. Dr David Godsiff will join the practice as a new Partner from April. Doctor Godsiff has been with the practice for some time now, he was a Registrar here for a year and is currently a Salaried GP. We are also very pleased to announce that another two of our Registrars will be staying with us as Salaried Doctors, Dr Jennifer Hey from June, Dr Jocelyn Lam from August. Dr Nichola Osborne will also join the practice in April as a Salaried Doctor.
PLEASE DON'T CONTACT US about who your registered Doctor will be. The administration process for re-arranging the patient lists will be carried out over the course of the next couple of months. We won't action any individual change requests until later in the year.
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.
DISPENSARY SATURDAY OPENING FROM FEBRUARY 2019
From Saturday 2nd February 2019 the dispensary at Wallingford Medical Practice will be open from 08:30 – 12:00. This is an extension of our current Monday to Friday service, offering more flexibility, particularly for those who work mid-week and parking should be easier. Please note the car park is owned by Oxford Health and charges apply (first 30 mins is free).
We look forward to helping you. Wallingford Medical Practice Dispensary Team.
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 Henry during January, February and March. 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.
