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.
Our smoking cessation clinics have restarted on Wednesdays. 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 have recently introduced text message reminders for clinical appointments. If your patient record contains your mobile number you will receive a notification when you make your appointment followed by a reminder 48 hours before the 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.
