The MiDOS tool which is the part on the website which says 'Enter your location to find NHS services near you:' is a comprehensive local directory of services and kept up to date. It may save you coming to the surgery.

First Contact Physio Pilot
We started a First Contact Physio pilot in July 2019. This will run for 12 months and we are one of only three practices in BaNES to offer this exciting service without the need to see your GP. If you are a registered patient and have one of the following conditions please book online to see our First Contact Physio or ask reception for an appointment:
- Back pain
- Balance issues in the elderly
- Joint problems/pain
- Ligament problems
- Muscle injuries
- Neck pain
- Soft tissue injuries e.g. sprains, strains and twists
- Spinal pain and pain referred into arms or legs from the spine
- Sports Injuries
- Pain affecting walking
- Tendon problems (Achilles, carpal tunnel, plantar, fascitis, tennis elbow, RSI)
We are here to help and aim to be as polite and helpful as possible even at difficult times. Any form of abusive or aggressive behaviour towards our staff, or any or our patients, will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Patients who are abusive may be asked to leave and could be removed from our patient list.
Evening and Weekend Appointments at other BaNES Surgeries (Improved Access)
Would you like to see a GP or Nurse during the evening or on weekend? Appointments are available to improve access for patients registered with a GP Practice within BaNES. Please ask reception about this additional appointment availability which is currently bookable by telephone or in person. As well as GP appointments this service includes Nurse appointments for smear tests, blood tests (provided already arranged by your GP) and routine dressings. This Improving Access service is provided by BEMS.
We no longer use a fax machine. Local pharmacies and hospitals can email BSCCG.email@example.com If you are a patient with a medical mater please ring and speak to reception.
For routine referrals we will send you a text message to let you know when your referral is ready to collect from the practice.
