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.
We hope that our new website will give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. Not only does the site provide information about how the practice operates on a day to day basis but it also provides a wealth of information about health matters which we hope will be useful. Please do let us know what you think.
We are constantly aiming to provide a better service for our patients despite the ever increasing pressures and constraints of the NHS. We would encourage patients to become involved in our patient participation group as a way of helping us make changes.

Improving turnaround time for prescription requests
Please can we encourage everyone to register for online services via EMIS Patient Access to order their repeat prescriptions (and make appointments). Prescriptions ordered this way go directly to the GP's inbox, thereby reducing the extra steps in the process when requests come via slips of paper, emails and via the pharmacies (each of these requires a member of staff to put the request onto the computer manually). Requests coming in via Patient Access will be processed faster and can go directly to the pharmacy (or our dispensary, if applicable). The more patients that do this, the more staff time that can be freed up to allow us to improve the service we provide.
For more details of how to register for online services, please see the 'Online Services' page of our website.
Wallingford Community Hospital ward cover is currently being provided by Dr Henry
4th July - 30th September
From the 4th July until the 30th September Dr Henry will have reduced appointment availability as he is on duty 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.
