Noticeboard

The surgery will be closed for training purposes on : THURSDAY 27th JUNE between : 1.00 pm - 3.00 pm.

Evening and Weekend Appointments Available Now

 You can now access additional Primary Care Services in the evenings and at weekends.

 Improved Access is a Wiltshire-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 patients in Wiltshire  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.

A New Surgery?

A New Surgery in Sherston?

If you want to retain a GP Surgery in Sherston, then you need to support this campaign and ensure your voice is heard.

The need to secure the future of the GP surgery in Sherston was identified by the Sherston Parish Council as being of high priority for Sherston residents. 

The Steering Group for the Sherston Neighbourhood Plan believes that a way must be found to fund a new GP surgery, or Sherston’s GP practice is likely to be closed within 7 years.

The vote on the Sherston Neighbourhood Plan by way of a Referendum was conducted on 16th May 2019.

92% were in support !!

The results of this will now determine the future of the surgery in the village.

The Partners and staff would like to thank all residents for their fantastic ongoing support.

The proposal is that a mixed use development on the Sopworth Road site comprising 45 houses could fund the construction of a new surgery.

  • The current surgery is likely to close within 7 years unless it can move into more suitable accommodation.
  • The nearest GP Surgery will be at least 6 miles away.
  • Our elderly and disabled patients need ground floor consulting rooms
  • A new surgery will preserve the vibrancy and viability of the village
  • The proposed option will
    • provide more affordable housing
    • secure future expansion land for the primary school
    • provide land allocated for a new pre-school facility
    • preserve existing green spaces elsewhere in the village
  • 26 Houses are to be built in Sherston, with the possibility of further development – an extra 19 houses now will protect the village from further development and provide a new GP Surgery
