Blunsdon patients can see a Doctor by calling 01793 721254 during our opening hours or call in at the surgery. Please make it clear if your problem needs urgent attention, we request that making routine enquiries and non-urgent appointments is left till after 11.30am. For any other appointment types (eg Asthma Nurse, Blood Tests etc) please contact Highworth Surgery on 01793 762218.
In line with the Government’s wish for extended GP surgery hours, this surgery offers a late evening additional session for pre-booked routine appointments on Wednesdays.
Please note that all of our routine GP appointments are 15 minutes, the Doctors will only be able to see a maximum of two health problems per appointment in this time.
Depending on availability, you may be offered an appointment at a nearby site so that you can be seen sooner. If you are unable to travel to another site, please let the reception team know.
Remember you can book appointments online by registering for SystmOnline (contact reception for more details), click HERE to log in. We try to make sure you see the doctor of your choice but if they are not available we may ask you to see another doctor.
If you are too ill to come to the surgery and you require a visit at home, please call the surgery as early as possible. Home visits take up much more of a Clinician’s time than a consultation in the surgery, so if you are mobile please come into the surgery to be seen. You may be telephoned back by a Clinician before a visit is made to ascertain the visit is necessary – home visits are always done at the clinical discretion of the Clinician.
Important – For Emergencies you should attend the Accident & Emergency Department of your local hospital or dial 999: an emergency is a critical or life-threatening situation, and includes things like: chest pain or suspected heart attack, head injury, severe loss of blood, severe breathing difficulties, loss of consciousness, deep wounds, suspected broken bones.
If you would like a chaperone present during your consultation, then please advise the Receptionist when booking an appointment or when checking in.
Please note all our Doctors speak English. Telephone translators can be arranged via ‘Language Line’ or ‘Alpha Plus’ for most languages. Please inform the Receptionist if you would like to use either of these services and ask for a double appointment.
