Please note: Cyber-Incident update: All our computer systems are now back up and running after the cyber-attack which hit the NHS at the weekend. Please note however we are not receiving any letters or discharges from the Royal Berkshire Hospital at present and currently have not given a timescale as to when this will resume.
Parking at the surgery is limited
What we do about it:
We have asked the council for more land to ease the situation but at present there is none available.
A number of our staff walk and cycle to the surgery.
We regularly monitor the car park situation and address issues with drivers who park for school runs or to walk pets.
What you can do to help:
Please leave your car at home if you can, to ensure there is parking available for those who are unable to walk and those who are very ill.
If you need to drive, please allow enough time to park locally and walk a short distance to the surgery.
Please ensure that your prescriptions are set up to go electronically to the chemist of your choice to save you coming in to collect them.
Disabled spaces are kept ONLY for patients with blue badges.
Ambulance bay parking is ONLY for the ambulance crew when they need to access the building quickly in an emergency situation.
Drivers who park inappropriately in the Disabled or Ambulance bays will be asked to move their cars.
NO DROP OFF/PICK UP IN THESE BAYS
Remember, our Patient Services Team are here to help you. They are unable to create new parking spaces. We expect them and the whole practice team to be treated with respect and consideration. Verbal abuse or aggression will not be tolerated and will be reported to the police.
Thank you for your help with this difficult issue.

Access to a wide range of healthcare services is a key element of a good local practice. We don’t just want to see you when you are ill; we want to make sure you stay healthy too. Our aim is to provide a high standard of healthcare by making appropriate and innovative use of limited NHS resources in partnership with other healthcare providers and in partnership with you.
The practice, which has a Christian foundation, was started in 1977 when Dr Derek Munday took over a single-handed practice in Wokingham Road, Earley. It expanded rapidly throughout the 1970s and 80s when Lower Earley was built, and we now serve about 26,500 people from our three surgeries in Earley, Lower Earley and Winnersh.
Our professional team will ensure you receive the best attention at all times whether you’re attending a specialist clinic or a routine appointment. Our team of about 130 people includes doctors, practice nurses, healthcare assistants, patient services, support staff, district nurses, midwives, dietitians, smoking cessation advisers, physiotherapists and counsellors. Other professionals regularly visit the practice. The practice is part of the Wokingham Clinical Commissioning Group. If you’re new to the area registration is easy, please click here for more information.
