Welcome to Bishops Waltham Surgery
Changing Clinical Systems
Please be advised that on Tuesday 28th October we will be changing clinical systems to EMIS Web.
We apologise, but our appointment system will run differently to normal in the lead up to and after the changeover date.
Thank you in advance for your patience during this essential transition period.
As part of this migration we will NOT be accepting any new VOS (Vision Online Services) aplications. You will be able to register for Bishhops Waltham Surgery's Online modules after we go live on Tuesday 28th October 2014. If you are currently registered for VOS you can continue to use this until Wednesday 22nd October.
Unfortuently, if you are a current VOS user, you will need to re-register for the new service called EMIS Access but only after Tuesday 28th October.
A letter will be sent out to excisting VOS Users explaining this.
This years Flu Season will be starting at the beginning of October.
We will be holding two flu clinics on Saturday 4th & 18th October which are available to book now in person or over the phone.
Eligible patients will receive a letter reminding them of this by the end of September.
If you are eligible for the Shingles and Pneumococcal vaccination, we will contact you in writing.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Access & Parking
The surgery is accessible to wheelchair users and has disabled parking bays close to the building with a ramp to the front door. Patients unable to open the front door should use the bell to request assistance from a member of staff. The patient toilet is fully equiped for the needs of disabled users.
There is a convenient public car park just a short distance from the surgery in Lower Lane. Patients are asked not to park on the surgery forecourt as this may cause an obstruction to vehicles required for a medical emergency.
Smoking & Mobile Phones
Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the surgery site and we kindly request that you refrain from using your mobile phone whilst in the surgery building.
