Urgent care

You can no longer book an urgent appointment on the day at 8am.

Instead the Receptionist will take your details and the Dr will telephone you.

The Dr will then offer you an appointment if they think you need to be seen in person.

You may be offered an appointment at SUCCESS (Swindon Urgent Care Collaborative Emergencies Surgery Scheme).

SUCCESS is based at Moredon and Hermitage.

Children’s Clinics

Children aged 13 weeks to 18 years of age, can be seen at SEQOL’s Children’s Clinics, sited at the Moredon Medical Centre and at Carfax Health Enterprise.

Open from 8am to 8pm seven days a week by appointment.

Telephone 01793 646466 to book an appointment.

Children can also be seen at the Urgent Care Centre at GWH 24 hours a day.

Patient access to their GP record

Through SystmOne Online patients can make a request to be able to view their detailed patient record in coded form.

NHS England - List Maintenance Project 2015

Registration letters from NHS England – please respond if you get one.

The NHS is carrying out work in Bath, Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all.

If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes.

Electronic Prescription Service

This service gives you the option to 'nominate' the place you choose to get your medication from so that they can receive your prescriptions electronically. This could save you a trip to the surgery just to collect a prescription form - particularly if you have regular prescriptions.

Online booking appointments and requesting repeat prescriptions

It is now possible to book and cancel appointments and request repeat prescriptions online. Please collect a form from Reception to register. You will be asked for proof of identity.

Out of Hours

On weekdays between 6.30pm and 8.00am, and on weekends and bank holidays, access to Out of Hours services is now via NHS111 - please dial 111. After assessment of your symptoms you may be invited to attend the Out of Hours Centre which is at The Great Western Hospital site and is operated by SEQOL.

Appointments

Although we run an appointments system, some appointments do overrun and delays do sometimes occur. We appreciate that this may cause inconvenience at times. Please be patient; you may require the extra time one day.

Welcome to The Great Western Surgery

The Great Western Surgery was built in August 1990 and is an excellent purpose built cost rent premises located on the outskirts of Swindon town centre.

Our surgery gives us the luxury of being able to practice from a functional, and aesthetically pleasing building that has been further enhanced in March 2003 by the addition of upstairs accommodation.

We have good access to all major routes, with M4 junctions, east and west, between five and ten minutes travelling time from the surgery. A fifteen minute walk from the surgery will take you to the Swindon main line BR Station with frequent train services to all parts of the UK. Swindon is also well placed for Bath, Bristol and Oxford.

The beauty of the surrounding countryside of Wiltshire and the Cotswolds, with their many charming and historic villages, is never lost on the people be they visitors to the area or locals. We presently have a stable list size of approximately 5600 patients. Historically our practice population is drawn from all areas of the town, however, although we have adopted a flexible approach, we are finding it necessary to limit our intake of new patients to within a specific grid area of the town.
