We all face very significant challenges in the coming weeks. We fully understand everyone concerns about being able to access medicines. However as a practice we need to be mindful of all of our 4100 patients and being able to deliver supplies to all of you.
We therefore ask that you do not request more than 1 month of your medicines at any time. Stockpiling will lead to supply issues for everyone and in these challenging times we need to come together as a community. Dr Barton and Dr Silver ask you to please respect the advice we are giving you. We will naturally update this information if there are any changes.
In light of the emerging Covid-19 pandemic, we are changing the way we provide medical care to minimise the risk to our patients and staff.
With effect from 8am on Friday 13th March, we will be running a full telephone triage service. This means that if you have a pre-booked GP appointment, we politely request that you do not attend the surgery. Instead, the GP will contact you by telephone on the day of your appointment to discuss your problem. Following this, if it is deemed necessary to see you face to face, an appointment for this will be offered.
Due to the need for ongoing nursing procedures for many of our patients, we are not cancelling nurse appointments at this point in time. However, if you feel your appointment is not essential and/or would prefer not to attend, we would be grateful if you could call or email the surgery to cancel.
Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time, and we will endeavour to keep you updated with any further changes.
Drs Barton, Silver & Team

Minor Injuries Units For minor injuries use either Henley-on-Thames or Abingdon Minor Injuries Units or your hospital A&E. Minor Injuries Units (MIU) are located at Henley Townlands Hospital and Abindon Community Hospital. Click here for opening times and contact information. MIUs may be particularly useful for those patients over 65 who do not wish to travel to a hospital A&E department.
You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help.
