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 now use the internet to book and cancel routine Doctors' appointments and to view their medical records (currenly "Allergies" and "Prescription history"). Patients need to be registered to use this service provided by VOS (Vision Online Services) www.myvisiononline.co.uk . Proof of ID is required. From January 2016 patients who have nominated a pharmacy to have their prescriptions sent electronically will also be able to order their medication online via the above website. The facility to do this via the practice website will cease at the end of December 2015. Please speak to your chosen pharmacy to set you up with Electronic Prescription Service. For more details about registering for online services, please contact the surgery. For more information, read leaflet. You can print the VOS registration form here.
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 inspector visited our practice to look at the personal care of patients who use the service. We are delighted to share that Brookside Group Practice have met all the standards that were inspected. Full report is available on the CQC website.
