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. Check out how we can cover both bases with our clinics and services. Our professional team will ensure you receive the best attention at all times whether you’re attending a specialist clinic or a routine appointment. If you’re new to the area registration is easy please click here for more information.
Our patients can register to have online access to be able to book and cancel routine doctors' appointments, view their medical records (currently "Allergies" and "Prescription history") and order their repeat prescriptions. To register for Online Services, please speak to reception. 2 forms of identification are required: 1 photographic and 1 proof of residence (utilities and mobile phone bills not accepted). To use medication ordering facility you will need to nominate a pharmacy as the prescription will be sent from the surgery electronically via EPS (Electronic Prescription Service) to your chosen pharmacy.

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 team of about 130 people includes doctors, practice nurses, healthcare assistants, patient services, support staff, district nurses, midwives, dieticians, smoking cessation advisers, physiotherapists and counsellors. Other professionals regularly visit the practice. The practice is part of the Wokingham Clinical Commissioning Group.
Care Quality Commissioning - during our previous CQC inspection we have met all the standards required. You can read the report following inspectors' visit to Brookside Group Practice on the CQC website.
