Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals currently has a large number of patients with Norovirus. In order to safeguard patients and prevent spread of the virus to visitors we have taken the difficult decision to restrict visiting to all inpatient areas.

Local doctors and healthcare professionals are asking for feedback on possible options to change and develop urgent care and walk-in services in North West Surrey.

Residents can attend a series of public events to give their views on a shortlist of options for future services and discuss how a greater range of support could also be offered in the community.

As much as we are enjoying ourselves with friends and family over the festive period, sometimes illness can get in the way. With a number of bank holidays across the period, GP and pharmacy opening times can vary - make sure you are fully prepared.

Responding to local media coverage relating to a proposal to develop GP services as part of a potential rebuild of Woking Football Club, a spokesperson for NHS North West Surrey CCG, said: 

"At this time the CCG is not involved in detailed discussions with the developers leading this project and we understand that proposals are at a very early stage. We remain committed to exploring opportunities to improve local services for the people of Woking, including access to GP care, and this will be done in collaboration with our partners and local people."

In September 2019 the CCG formally lodged an appeal against the planning decision of Elmbridge Borough Council to refuse the change of use of the empty Burwood Ward to house Fort House GP surgery.
