 NEW SURVEY ON PROPOSED ENHANCED SERVICE AND WEEKEND SERVICES. Please complete

We have produced a survey around improved primary care access for patients.  As part of a national initiative, we are looking at how we can improve access to healthcare by offering routine appointments outside the core hours. 

We are part of the Surrey Heath Primary Care Network, working with other local GP Practices in Surrey Heath & Ash Vale.  These other Practices are Bartlett Group Practice (Ash Vale / Frimley Green), Camberley Health Centre, Lightwater Surgery, Park House Surgery (Bagshot), Park Road Group Practice (Camberley) and Station Road Surgery (Frimley) 

We are exploring different options for improving access and providing additional appointments, including considering delivering some appointments from a central, accessible location.

By answering this survey, you are helping us develop GP services that meet the needs of local patients.

DVLA and “Fit to Drive”: Section 88 of the Road Traffic Act 1988

Most GPs are not confident to advise patients whether or not they are fit to drive, and in normal circumstances we would provide a factual report for DVLA so that their expert medical advisers can decide upon fitness. If we provide an opinion that someone is fit, and then an accident occurs, are we liable? If we say a patient is not fit, then this can adversely affect both patient wellbeing and our long term relationship with that patient.

For these reasons, we have been advised if our GPs have any doubt about whether a person is fit to drive, it is reasonable to decline to provide this assurance, and we will write to DVLA explaining that we cannot give an opinion, but offering to provide factual information about a person’s health.

COVID VACCINATION PROOF / COVID 'passport' requests

GPs are not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status. Please do not contact the practice about your COVID-19 vaccination status or letters for travel. Please ring 119 for details.

Please do not call or email the surgery to add details of COVID vaccines done abroad. Please see this website for further details on how to get this added to the NHS app. Please contact NHS 119 and ask for the Vaccine Data Resolution Service (VDRS) for all vaccination related enquiries like missing information / not appearing on the app etc.
