Coronovirus - Covid 19


For adults aged between 40 and 74 who has not had a health check with a Doctor in the last five years, we provide a cardiovascular health check which involes a series of routine blood tests that will show your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and type two diabetes.

These checks are availble to patients who are not already being treated for high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease and who have not previously had a stroke.

Please contact reception to make an appointment for your check.

Anyone over 18 can now book directly through the National Booking System or by calling 119.

We are working with Great Western Hospital to deliver vaccinations. We will be doing this in order of priority which has been set nationally. There are nine groups.

Appointments with the Great Western Hospital will be available through the national booking system as above.

There is a helpful article from the BBC about the process.

Please do not contact the surgery about the vaccination - we don't have direct access to these appointments.. If we have your mobile number you will receive a text message invitation, although you do not have to wait for this. We use a company called MJOG to send these messages and they appear to come from the number 07903 593404.

If we do not have up to date details for you then we will not be able to get in touch. If you have move recently or changed phone number then please contact the surgery to update your details.

For general enquiries about the vaccine the Clinical Commissioning Group has a list of answers.

All of these are available to our patients and you can contact the course organisers directly, you don't need a referral from us.

 Emergency eye care service is provided by Specsavers.  62/63 Regent Street Swindon SN1 1JS 01793 617858

Free NHS appointments available at local opticians - you must ring them first do not just visit premises

Free urgent eyecare services now available at opticians

People across Bath, North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire can now access free NHS treatment for urgent eye care from their local optician. 

The brand new service commissioned by the local NHS, means that high street opticians can offer free treatment for urgent eye conditions such as itchy and red eyes, scratched or swollen eyes or unexplained reduced vision. 

Anyone, whatever age and whether registered with an optician or not, will be able to access treatment for any new or worsening eye conditions.

This is a temporary service set up as a result of concerns that many patients were not seeking treatment for eye conditions due to worries about exposing themselves to Covid19 by visiting A&E departments or their GP. 

A full list of those opticians who are offering this new service is available at
