Welcome to River Wey Medical Practice

River Wey Medical Practice is a traditional family practice run by six highly enthusiastic doctors dedicated to providing patients with a first class service from its purpose built surgery located in the Farnham Centre for Health. The Practice occasionally undertakes the training and teaching of healthcare professionals.

The Centre is part of the Farnham Hospital complex which features many services combined under one roof: District Nurses, Health Visitors, Midwives, In-patient beds, Out-patient hospital services, X-Ray, physiotherapy, phlebotomy and a pharmacy are to name but a few. The complex also houses a Social Services team as part of an integrated approach to community care.

The Practice aims to provide a one-stop solution to meet its patients’ primary health care needs. The modern complex has excellent parking and has been designed to allow unrestricted access for disabled patients.

Extended Access

The five Farnham practices continue to work together and will be offering routine appointments to their registered patients through NHS England’s new Patient Extended Access. Routine GP appointments are now available on Saturday mornings in Farnham and Sunday mornings at Frimley Park Hospital. Routine Practice Nurse and Healthcare Assistant appointments will be available Monday-Friday evenings and Saturday mornings in Farnham.

Four of the five Farnham practices are already established in seeing patients for their same day appointments in the Farnham Integrated Care Centre. The Extended Access appointments will give patients from all five practices the opportunity to see a doctor, nurse or health care assistant for a routine appointment outside the core hours of their GP practice. The appointments are all booked through the patient’s home practice reception team. However, the appointment will take place at the Farnham Integrated Care Centre based in Farnham Centre for Health.

The Sunday morning appointments at Frimley are also Patients are also able to book routine GP appointments on a Sunday morning through their home practice. These appointments will take place at Frimley Park Hospital, Out-Patient 1.

 Flu Clinics

In the run up to Christmas we all spend a lot of time in crowded areas i.e. parties and shops, so you should make sure you get a flu vaccination as soon as possible. It takes two weeks to develop a full antibody response to the flu vaccine and it then protects you for six months, so the best time to get vaccinated is in October. You will then be covered all winter.

If you would like a flu vaccine please call or speak to reception.

All Patients Allocated a Named GP

You may be aware that all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

If you are unsure as to who your named GP is, please contact reception. You can of course see which ever GP you choose when you are visiting the practice. 

Are Your Contact Details Up To Date?

We will soon be trialling a new system of text reminders for appointments and annual reviews. Please check that reception has your current mobile number for this service.
