Welcome to Bishops Waltham Surgery

We provide comprehensive NHS primary care services to help you manage your health and well-being.

Temporary Car Park Changes

Due to the current pandemic no staff are currently parking in The Surgery car park.This is to allow ‘High Risk’ & ‘Vulnerable’ patients that need to see a GP or Nurse to be able to park and potentially wait in their car until the Doctor or Nurse can see them. We ask any person picking medication up from dispensary not to park in the car park.
We would like to thank Winchester City Council for allowing staff to park in their car parks during this time.

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 equipped 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

Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the surgery site.

Mobile Phones

We kindly request that you refrain from using your mobile phone whilst in the surgery building.

Know who to turn to for your healthcare

We want to help you get the right medical assistance when you’re ill, injured or have a long term condition. Going directly to the person with the appropriate skills is important. This can help you to a speedier recovery and makes sure all NHS services are run efficiently.

Alert

Coronavirus Update

COVID Vaccination

TO ALL OF OUR PATIENTS

Dear patients,

PLEASE DO NOT CALL, WRITE OR EMAIL THE PRACTICE TO ENQUIRE ABOUT AN APPOINTMENT FOR A COVID VACCINATION FOR YOURSELF OR FAMILY MEMBERS.  WE WILL CONTACT PATIENTS WHEN IT IS THEIR TURN FOR THE VACCINATION AND OUR RECEPTION TEAM ARE UNABLE TO BOOK ONE FOR YOU.

As you will know, the Covid vaccination programme is now underway and some of our patients have already received the vaccination.

In time, a vaccine will be available for everyone, but at the moment the clear priority nationally and for us  is to focus on the most vulnerable first, those aged 80 or over.

Please be reassured that we will be in touch with you when it is your turn to receive the vaccination. We know that many of you are keen to be vaccinated as soon as possible, but we must ask everyone to be patient – we are not holding reserve stocks of the vaccine and so cannot simply request extra appointments. Calling or messaging the practice will not get you an appointment more quickly, but it will take our staff away from their other work and may stop more urgent calls getting through.

The government has said that the vaccination programme will be a marathon, not a sprint. It will take time to vaccinate everybody, but we will be in touch with you all as soon as we possibly can. And while you wait for that invitation please remember to do the basics, to keep yourselves safe – wash your hands, cover your face, and give other people space.

We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding.
