Welcome to the Sonning Common Health Centre Website!
We are still giving flu immunisations to patients who are eligible for a free flu jab.
How to Find Us
We are a friendly, caring practice with a strong sense of teamwork and innovation. We want you, the patient, to feel that you are important to us.
We are looking for a part time receptionist working up to 6 sessions per week to join our friendly practice team. Job share will be considered. This is a challenging but rewarding role. You will need to be an individual that enjoys working in a busy environment, can multi task and keep calm under pressure. Flexibility is a must as you will be required to cover absence and holiday of other reception staff. Experience would be advantageous but not essential.
We are also looking for a part time secretary to work 5 hours per week, ideally on a Friday but there is flexibility in the hours. You will also be required to cover absence for the other secretaries. Experience in a medical environment is essential. You must also be comfortable with working on your own as for some of the 5 hours you will be on your own in the office.
Please email email@example.com for an application pack. Closing date is Tuesday 2nd December with interviews to be held week commencing Monday 8th December
Our smoking cessation clinics have restarted on Wednesday morning and evenings.Please contact Reception to book in with our nurse.
The positive approach
While we inevitably spend much of our time dealing with illness, we lay great stress on prevention and on improving your health. We aim to help to develop a healthy community and have fostered the development of easily accessible exercise schemes such as Health Walks, HealthCycling and the Green Gym. These initiatives have won a national reputation. We actively work with local organisations to help run OnYourBike, an annual charity cycle ride.
The Health Centre was opened in 1970 and has grown since. Located in a semi-rural area, we look after a population of some 8,500 patients within a six-mile radius extending into the northern suburbs of Reading and west of Henley-on-Thames. We dispense medicines to about a third of our patients (eligible because they live more than a mile from the local pharmacy 'as the crow flies').
Text message reminders for appointments
We will shortly be introducing reminders for clinical appointments. If your patient record contains your mobile number you will receive a reminder via SMS 48 hours before your appointment. If you wish to receive these messages, please provide Reception with your mobile centre when you are in the health centre. If you wish to advise us by email, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, date of birth and mobile phone number. Please do not use this email address for general correspondence.
