Welcome to Sonning Common Health Centre

To protect vulnerable patients and our staff we need to continue to minimise the amount of patients visiting the health centre. Only come to the health centre if you have a face to face appointment or if you need to visit the dispensary. 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:/www.patientaccess.com/ for all other enquiries.

Patients can wait outside the Health Centre if they choose, or in their car and be called from the car park. Please phone Reception so they are aware that you have arrived and are waiting outside. Please wear a face covering before entering the health centre: whether you are coming for an appointment or if you need to visit the dispensary. Practice social distancing in the health centre and wait outside if there are more than 2 people in the reception area. Use hand gel when you arrive and try to use the toilet at home before visiting the health centre.

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 14 days
  • you have been instructed to self isolate by NHS Test and Trace
  • you are awaiting a Covid test result
  • you are at any increased risk of having or spreading the virus, e.g. quarantining after travel

Please visit NHS 111 online at https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19 or call 119 if you have symptoms.

Clinics

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:https://www.nhs.uk/apps-library/nhs-app/
