Evening and Weekend Appointments Available Now
You can now access additional Primary Care Services in the evenings and at weekends.
Improved Access is a Nationwide-wide initiative where local practices are working together to offer increased availability of services and appointments in the evenings and the weekend. These appointments are available 18:30-20:00 Monday-Friday, and Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays. This collaboration by practices will ensure all our patients have this option, but this might mean you will be offered an appointment at another practice.
Appointment types will vary - some being face-to-face, some on the phone - and there will be a mixture of bookable and same-day appointments available across the week. We will be offering appointments with GPs as well as with other healthcare professionals, such as a Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant . We are keen to balance the importance of continuity of care with convenient access for patients, while ensuring that the service is safe.
To book such an appointment, contact your local Surgery during normal opening times. A receptionist will explain the process, and ensure the booking is appropriate. You will need to give consent to use this service.
For more information, please contact your usual GP surgery.
John Jones Retirement
We are sorry to have to inform you that after 30 years service at Lambourn Surgery, Dr Jones will be retiring at the end of December. He has some leave to take, so his last working day will be November the 29th.
We will all miss him very much as I am sure will all of his patients. There will be a collection for him in reception if any patients would like to contribute, and they will take in cards for him there too.
Dr Katie Mills who has worked at the surgery before whilst in training, will return in January to cover 3 of the sessions previously covered by Dr Jones, and Dr Sarah Marriage, who has also been in training here at Lambourn, will join us in November 2019 covering 6 sessions a week.
