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.

New Evening and Saturday GP and Nurse Pre-bookable Appointments available locally

The local Clinical Commission Group has set up a new Extended Hours Service aimed at patients who may have difficult attending the surgery for planned care appointments during normal opening hours. 

This NHS Service provides GP & Nurse pre-bookable, planned care appointments in the evening Monday to Friday (18:30-20:00) and Saturdays (08:00-13:30).  The appointments are at a central Bracknell location, in the Boundary House Surgery near the Kerth Centre.

Clinical Matter Queries via email

We should like to request patients not to email clinical queries or for medical advice via our email account for the GPs to review.  This is not the correct route to raise these kinds of issues due to timescales and potentially there may be missing necessary information.

We are happy to receive home blood pressure readings if you have been asked to forward the data by a GP and normal prescription requests etc we would otherwise kindly request you book either a face to face appointment or a telephone appointment to have your discussion.

We offer 3 pre-bookable telephone slots per clinics for GPs working both am and pm.  Additionally, we offer 3 more urgent book on the day medication query calls with  per GPs working.  We understand that these requests are made via email with the aim of helping to get a response quicker or to save appointments with the staff but there are some concerns around this way of providing advice which may affect patient safety.

We hope you will understand and help us with this request.

Expansion of online services

We are pleased to announce an expansion of the online services we offer to our patients with full effect from 31st March 2015.
