- people who are in receipt of a carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer of an older or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill

Separate clinics are run for children to receive the nasal vaccine. This includes all children between 2 and 3 years old and any at risk patients under 18 years of age. Primary school children are offered the vaccine via their school.
Housebound patients will be contacted by our nursing team to arrange home visits.

Extended Access Clinics
Since Monday 20th August 2018 it has be even easier for people to make an appointment with a GP, thanks to a new national ‘extended access’ initiative, which improves access to primary care services in North West Surrey. This means, in addition to being able to book GP appointments at your local practice, you will also have access to additional appointments during the evenings and at weekends at four locations across the local area. The extra appointments are being provided by the GP federation that brings together all 40 GP practices in the local area and is known as North West Surrey Integrated Care Services.
By working together in a new and different way local GP practices will be improving access to primary care appointments,making it even easier for local people to get the care and advice they need, at a time that’s convenient to them.These additional appointments will be available from 6-9pm on weekday evenings (including bank holidays but not in August) and from 9am to midday at weekends. Patients can book these appointments through their local GP practice. As these extra appointments are provided from four GP surgeries in the area, the GP or clinician will have access to your medical record, with your consent, giving them access to all the information they would need to provide the best possible care.The additional appointments will be provided at the following locations – and patients in North West Surrey can book appointments at any of these sites:
The Red Practice – Walton Health Centre (Rodney Road, Walton-on-Thames, KT12 3LB)
Studholme Medical Centre (50 Church Road, Ashford, TW15 2TU)
Sunbury Health Centre (Green Street, Sunbury-on-Thames, TW16 6RH)
Woking Community Hospital (Heathside Road, Woking, GU22 7HS)

Support our fundraising in 2019
Our surgery has a charity associated with it which helps to provide facilities and services that the NHS does not normally fund. Over the years - this has enabled us to refurbish the reception and waiting room areas - and buy things like 24hr blood pressure monitoring equipment.
