Your local NHS is under pressure with A&E at Frimley Park Hospital continuing to experience high demand. Help us keep A&E for those who really need it by only attending if you have severe symptoms or suffering from a life-threatening condition. If you need an urgent appointment please do contact us, via an online consultation or phone, during our opening hours. Thank you.
We still offer face to face appointments. These are accessed by having a conversation with a clinician either by eConsult or by a phone conversation. Many issues can be sorted out without a face to face appointment but if you and your doctor decide this is the best option, then an appropriate appointment will be arranged for you and any necessary tests ordered in advance whenever possible.
eConsult Get Started
All patients are assigned to a "Usual GP" and we encourage patients to see this doctor where possible so that continuity of care can be given.
As our phones are very busy first thing in morning, calling to book routine appointments later in the day is very helpful.
If you have a medical need which is urgent, contact us by phone or eConsult and a clinician will contact you on the same day.
Please remember that in an urgent appointment it is likely that the doctor or nurse will only deal with the immediate problem. Please only use this service when your problem cannot wait until the next routine appointment available.
AS you are telling us you need to be seen urgently, we will offer you the next available appointment. If work or school commitments prevent you from attending this, your may wish to consider asking taking a routine appointment at a more convenient time.
Our Receptionists are well trained and maintain complete confidentiality – feel free to ask their advice if you are unsure what to do, so that they can help you make best use of the services we offer. They will ask for a brief reason for your visit. This ensures that you are seen by the person best able to help you and also allows the doctor or nurse to plan for your visit.
If you cannot keep an appointment, please inform us as soon as possible so that it can be offered to another patient. You can cancel (but not make) appointments by following the link on the home page.
Please remember, an appointment is for one person only and separate appointments should be made for each person requiring a consultation.
If you have a mobile phone, please make sure that we have your number. We offer an appointment reminder service by text. Contacting patients by text is also quicker and cheaper than writing.
There are disabled parking spaces close to the front door at all of our sites. Wheelchair access is available to all consulting rooms. We have accessible toilet facilities. A hearing loop is available at Reception.
A copy of the Practice Booklet with lots of information about the practice is available in large font - please ask Reception to arrange a copy if required.
Please make the Receptionist aware when you are booking your appointment if you are likely to need any additional assistance when you arrive at the surgery. For example, clinical staff will collect patients with sight impairment from the waiting room and accompany them to the consulting room if required.
We can arrange interpretation services in person or by phone for patients who do not speak English. A signing service is also available for patients who are deaf or who have limited hearing. Please let us know if you need one of these services when booking an appointment.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended the option of booking appointments online. This is because we are running a "total triage system", where a clinician will advise whether a face to face appointment is required and, if so, where and when you can be seen safely. Please call us or use the e-consult service on our home page to start a conversation about how best we can help you.
Patient Access online appointments system
You can now book routine appointments to see your GP online.
We have introduced Patient Access, an online booking service allowing patients to book, view and cancel appointments with our practice using the internet. This system will also allow you to order repeat prescriptions and view your medical record including test results if requested.
More details about this can be found in our "Patient Online" section.
Patients need to be registered to use this service.
Registration forms are available from reception or you can download a form. You will need to complete the registration form and bring this to the surgery with photographic identification such as a valid passport or valid driving license and proof of address.
Once you have registered with the practice, you will be given a unique registration number that will enable you to logon on at https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk where you will need to create your account.
If possible please try to telephone the Help Hub before 10:30 if you require a home visit.
Please only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice.
Please bear in mind that visiting a patient at home takes approximately four times longer for the doctor than seeing you in the surgery and that there are also better facilities and equipment available to examine you at the surgery.
You may also be visited at home by a community nurse or Paramedic Practitioner if you are referred by your GP.
You may book a telephone appointment with your doctor by calling the Help Hub on 01252 872333.
Nurses are also available to offer advice on minor ailments - please book a call at Reception.
Before Your Appointment
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
For more information see the DirectGov website
You do not necessarily have to see a GP to get a fit note. If you have been in hospital, then the hospital should provide you with this. If you already have a fit note and need an extension then Reception can organise this for you. If you are not sure what to do then please speak to a Receptionist who will be able to help.
We are a training practice and take Medical Students from the University of Southampton, Physician Associate Students from the University of Surrey, post graduate Doctors and GP Registrars.
GP Specialist Trainee Registrars (GPStR's) are fully qualified doctors who have spent a further two years in hospital training. They then spend one year with us to gain more experience in General Practice before qualifying as a GP.

Dr Jamie Martin (Lead), Dr Arfan Ahmed, Dr Gareth Robinson, Dr Fiona Salkeld and Dr Jamie Buxton are our resident GP Trainers.
In order for the GP registrars to successfully complete their training they need to be assessed on their consulting skills. This is done by the appointed assessors viewing a video of the registrar’s consultations. You may be asked for your permission to have your consultation recorded in this way. If you agree, you will need to give your written permission and there is a consent form available at the desk, which you will be offered. If the doctor appears to be recording your consultation and you have not signed a consent form, then you should indicate this to him or her immediately. The recording will be used for educational purposes only. Further information about this process and the confidentiality of it, can be obtained from the reception staff.
