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).
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 currently being provided by Dr Walker 3rd January - 31st March Dr Walker 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 Walker does not have an appointment available.
Nursing Appointments We currently have a nurse on sick leave and another who is sadly leaving us due to family relocation. We are actively recruiting but obviously there will be an increased pressure on the nurses to provide appointments until we can do this. In order that we can prioritise appointments for the sickest patients, we have made the decision to not book any new travel clinic appointments or routine ear syringing appointments. Hopefully this will only be for the month of April 2017 and we will update the website as soon as we have appointments. Please see details under 'Our Services' for alternative places to get travel vaccinations and ear syringing. We will still see patients who need their ears cleaned for their Audiology appointments.
