Access to GP Practice Services - Patient Feedback

Church Street and Newbury Street Practices work together as a Primary Care Network (PCN), known as Wantage PCN, in which we are commissioned to deliver services that are in addition to our core medical services that are provided between 08:30 and 18:30 Monday – Friday.   
PCNs have been asked to undertake patient engagement to ensure that a new Enhanced Access Service to provide additional appointment capacity, with effect from 1 October 2022, meets the needs of our local population.   

Please help us in completing the short survey below to understand your views and needs on additional appointment capacity through Enhanced Access services.   It should take just a few minutes to complete.

*** Covid Safety***

Following the government announcement on 21/02/22, we have received advice from NHS England on 23/02/2022, which require current infection control guidance to be maintained in surgeries.

Please ensure that you:

  • Wear your mask in the surgery
  • Keep your distance from others when in the surgery
  • Arrive no more than 5 minutes before your appointment time
  • Avoid attending for routine care when you have Covid
  • Tell us if you have Covid symptoms or are Covid positive when booking an appointment

This way we can keep all patients safe – including those who cannot be vaccinated, or those whose immune systems may be compromised or weak.

Thank You

Grove Fields Park Run

You are invited to join our local parkrun which has just started in the fields behind the practice, it's EVERY Saturday morning at 9am and is for anyone who wants to walk or run 5km. It's always really good fun, there's often a coffee van there, everyone cheers you on and you treat it as your personal challenge. 

There were 185 participants yesterday and now is a really great time to start going as there are loads of people there who are just starting out with it. 

You need to sign up for free beforehand and print out your barcode which gets scanned at the finish line. You then get emailed your finish time so you know what your target is for next week.

GP Survey
3rd Feb

Annual GP Patient Survey

An annual national survey is being held to help gauge how people feel about their GP practice.

The GP Patient Survey is an independent survey run by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England. The survey is sent out to more than two million people, randomly selected, from across England between now and March.

The survey is designed to give patients the opportunity to feed back about their experiences of their GP practice. It includes questions about a range of issues, such as how easy or hard it is to make an appointment at your practice, satisfaction with opening hours and the quality of care received from your GP and practice nurses, amongst other things.

The survey will help the NHS to improve GP practices and other local NHS services so they better meet your needs.

If you have received a survey in the post, please click here for further guidance or to complete the survey online.

Wantage Heath Centre - Refurbishment

We are delighted to announce that the business case for a much-anticipated extension and refurbishment at Wantage Health Centre has had funding approved by Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group.  


This exciting project is still subject to planning approval by the council, but could begin as early as January 2022. It will provide us with nine extra consulting and treatment rooms so we can offer more services to our growing numbers of patients. We will also have a joint larger waiting and reception area in the centre of the building for both practices, new patient facilities and new pharmacy and optician units with independent access.


We will update you as soon as we have more information, but in the meantime we thank you for your continued support and look forward to a bright future at Wantage Health Centre
