How to Find Us

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 8,600 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').


Our 2017 Flu campaign is now live! 

If you are eligible for a free flu vaccination, please contact reception.  Further information is to be found on our link to the right hand side of the screen. 


Dr Samuel Muncey

Dr Sam Muncey joined us on 2nd August as a salaried doctor. Dr Muncey has been a GP Registrar with us for the past year. We have moved approximately 500 patients from Dr Drury (from patients whose surnames begin A to D) and approximately 350 patients from Dr Ronay (from patients whose surnames begin A to F) to build Dr Muncey's patient list.

If you were a patient of Dr Drury or Dr Ronay and you are one of the patients who will move to Dr Muncey you will have received a text message or email - if we have a mobile number or email address for you. Please note that, though Drs Drury and Ronay are currently oversubscribed, you can see any of our GPs, subject to availability.
