Welcome To The Gainsborough Practice

We are a group of six GPs, three nurses, one healthcare assistant and an administrative support team serving Bracknell and the surrounding area.

Our surgery is located at the Warfield Green Medical Centre. It is right next door to the Tesco supermarket.

This website is designed to be simple and easy to use - and with a single click from the menu above you can get straight to the information you need ... be it obtaining an on-line repeat prescription from the "how-to" section to understanding who within the practice can best help you through the "staff roles" area.

Recently Updated or Added Information

The latest news and information can be found by clicking on Breaking News which contains important information about upcoming changes to our appointment system from 1st October 2014.

During our last patient survey, you told us that you value seeing the same doctor with whom you are comfortable, and who best understands your health needs.

The Gainsborough Practice is committed to delivering high qulality medical care to all our patients, and we believe the best way to achieve this is to provide you with your own regular doctor who will see you for all your doctor appointments.

Therefore, from 1st October 2014, we are introducing a new appointment system where you will be given an appointment with your registered doctor.

Please confirm with a receptionist that you know who your registered doctor is.

Also when booking your appointment it would be very helpful to the doctor if you would give a brief explanation of the nature of your appointment.

There is information about the new Bracknell Urgent Care Centre (UCC) at Brants Bridge, which opens on Monday 7th April providing services for Urgent but not life threatening conditions.  This will run 8am - 8pm and replaces the MUI (Minor Injuiries Unit) at Heatherwood Hospital which closes on the 6th April.

There is some information about MJOG - our Patient messaging service using Text and E-mail.  Essentially it is a 'memory jogger' - we have been using it for some time for appointment reminders by text but we now are able to send other messages and use it for email as well now.

Our local CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) for Bracknell and Ascot (BACCG) has created a web based application accessible via the web to help you identify which healthcare service you need assistance from when you or a child is ill.  This should be useful to help you decided who do you need to see.  The weblink to the service is http://www.myhealthbracknell.info/ where it takes you through some questions to sections with advice including self help options and further contact details for other services.

We have also just added some information about  the new data caring system Care.Data  we have been told that this will now be delayed until the Autumn at least.
