GP services: 

Church Street Practice

The practice has been relocated to Burwood Ward at Walton Hospital, Rodney Road, Walton on Thames KT12 3LD.

For booked appointments, the practice will be calling/texting patients to confirm whether appointments are able to go ahead as planned; for those less urgent appointments, practices will rebook appointments at a later date, and will be operating a triage system to determine patients with the most need.

The current service provision is limited, including wound care, but the practice is hoping to provide normal services from early next week.

Patient are still able to call the practice using the usual telephone numbers of 01932 826025; 01932 826023 (which are being diverted to a single temporary telephone line which is 07825 088989). Please can we ask for your patience if you do need to call the practice as calls make take a while to be answered. The practice is only able to run a skeleton service for the next few days, however, we would ask patients to only call if your need is urgent.  You can also contact the practice by email churchstreet.practicemail@nhs.net

Patients can order repeat prescriptions online from their website www.churchstreetpractice.nhs.uk

Currently, the practice is unable to provide their extended access clinics. The service will be resumed as soon as possible. We apologise for the inconvenience. Opening hours are Monday-Friday 8.30am – 6:30pm. No Saturday clinics are being offered at this time.
