Training Practice - June 2017

We are aiming to become a training practice to include junior doctors' placements at the surgery. We have an approval visit date booked.

We have physician associate students placed with us that are training currently at the surgery. We thank you for your support with this and helping them through their placement.

If you would prefer not to see a student before seeing the doctors than please let reception know. You will be advised at the time of booking if your appointment is with any of our trainees.

We have appointed a clinical pharmacist, Mr Jaffer Rashid, available to deal with medication queries and minor illness on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.


CQC - April 2016

We achieved an overall good rating and a good rating throughout all of the inspection areas following our Care Quality commission inspection in March. We would like to thank patients for their support in this and hope they can be proud as we are of the rating we have received. We will continue to work hard to try and maintain and improve our standards where possible.



Patients are invited to attend the CCG public meeting on 14th June where the CCG, local authorities and the public are invited to attend a public meeting to discuss services and the proposed changes for local GP practices.

Our patients may be aware since the publication of an article in the Reading Chronicle last week, that the hospital has changed its mind with regards to selling the site at 17 Craven Rd, which this surgery together with other local surgeries had very much hoped could be used to see the development of a new purpose built Primary Care Medical Centre, a major strategic objective for our Clinical Commissioning Group to secure better GP services for local Reading patients .

NHS England is working with the GPs and CCG to try and persuade the hospital to reconsider its decision. Local patient groups and Reading Borough Councillors are also aware and over the previous 3 years had whole heartedly supported the project.

The withdrawl comes days after planning consent had been secured.

We would ask patients to write to the CEO of the RBH requesting this decision be reconsidered.

 There is a lot of media interest, as in excess of £100,000 of public money has already been invested in this project.

 If you have any queries/comments, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thank you for your support in what is a vital cause to secure sustainable GP services in your area.



We are also now required by NHS England to disclose the GP income for the practice and we are currently waiting the confirmed figures. Initial figures are an average salary of £60k per annum.
