Welcome to Sonning Common Health Centre

Our Appointments 

Please only request a medically urgent same day telephone appointment when you really feel this is required. We need to ensure we can deal with those in most medical need first. Please call or email our Reception team, use the econsult facility on our website or use Patient Access https:/ for all other enquiries.

We ask that our patients continue to wear face masks, gel their hands and respect social distancing measures when visiting the practice. This is to protect staff and vulnerable patients in whom the Covid vaccine may not be effective and to reduce the chance of more cases of long Covid.

Our staff are wearing face masks and/or additional PPE.  

Please do not visit the Health Centre if:

  • you have any Covid symptoms: loss of smell or taste, a high temperature, a new persistent cough
  • you have been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid in the previous 10 days
  • You are self isolating due to Covid
  • you are awaiting a Covid test result
  • you are at any increased risk of having or spreading the virus

Please telephone us and a telephone appointment will be made rather than a face to face appointment.

Please visit NHS 111 online at or call 119 if you have Covid symptoms.


econsult – Online Consultation Service 


Baby immunisations, dressings and cervical screening appointments will continue but we request that only one patient accompanies babies/children and only one carer/relative attends with frail adults or unwell patients. Please phone to check beforehand if you are unsure.

Repeat prescription requests can be dropped in the post box on the outer wall of the surgery by dispensary; however we encourage you to sign up for online services so that you can order your medication electronically. Please consider signing up for the NHS App to request your repeat medication:
