Our ‘Urgent Walk in Clinic’ no longer runs.
We have taken the opportunity to revise our appointment system.
From 6th August we will be offering a range of consultation types including:
- Same day URGENT timed appointments
- Routine appointments – face to face
- Telephone consultations
- Appointments also available with our Nurse Practitioner and Practice Pharmacist
This is part of our ongoing commitment to patient satisfaction and quality of care
We have a new member of the team:
Ben Merriman has joined us a Practice Pharmacist.
Ben’s expertise is in drugs, what they do to the body and what the body does to them.
With the number of medicines taken by patients increasing, pharmacists are becoming an increasingly important part of the healthcare team.
Ben is looking forward to playing his part in making sure patients at Waterloo House Surgery are getting the best possible care.
******Please remember to order your medication in plenty of time.
We require 2 working days to process your prescription for you.

All registered patients with the practice have an allocated, named GP who is responsible for patients overall care at the practice. This does not affect your care and you can still see any doctor/clinician of your choice.
If you wish to know who your allocated GP is please contact the reception team on 01229 402800.
Find out when our practice is open, what the GP consulting times are and what to do if you need help when the practice is closed. (please not we hold an 'URGENT clinic each day Monday-Friday between 09:30-11:30am - this clinic gets very busy so if you don't feel you need to see a doctor urgently please ask reception for the next available routine appointment)
Do you need to re-order your medication? You can do this at the reception desk, or by completing the counterfoil from your last prescription - simply tick what you want and pop it into the box opposite reception marked 'prescriptions'. You can also register for 'emis access' - a service which allows you to order prescriptions via the internet - register for this at reception. You will need to bring photo ID with you if you are not known to the receptionist.
ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTION SERVICE
If you are taking regular medication, our new electronic dispensing system will save time.
How it works

- You request your prescription in your usual way
- You then visit your nominated pharmacy when your prescription is ready, allowing 2 working days. The pharmacists will have your medication ready to collect.
