What We Do...
Woodland Road Surgery is a very traditional general practice that focuses on providing care for all of our patients in a way that is easy to access and provides continuity of care by a close-knit team of doctors, nurses and support staff. We offer several walk in sessions every week, these sessions are referred to as Open Surgery and ensure that patients can be seen on any day that they need to be when the surgery is open - NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY. Open Surgery operates between 8.30am and 10am every week day morning and between 4pm and 6pm every afternoon with the exception of Wednesday which is when we run our post-natal, child health and ante-natal clinics.
We are aware that some patients do prefer being able to pre-book appointments and this is something we offer whenever we can, however you may have to wait a few weeks until you can secure an appointment with your preferred GP. Please remember that all of our GP's take turns in covering Open Surgery so you can still be seen if you have a problem that cannot wait.
In March 2016 we carried out a survey asking our patients to choose between keeping Open Surgery and changing to an appointment only basis. We cannot maintain Open Surgery and increase the number of bookable appointments due to financial constraints.
Out of 150 patients who completed the survey 147 patients said they wanted to keep Open Surgery, so this is what we will do.
We now offer online access to your records, which means you are able to book/cancel appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view your medical record. To register for this, you will need to bring a form of photographic identification into reception so we are able to arrange this for you. Please click here for more information
