Welcome to The Old School Surgery
The doctors and staff at The Old School Surgery in Great Bedwyn are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
NHS Choices provides a vast array of information on common and not so common medical conditions. We would encourage patients to make use of this resource before calling the surgery.
Please also use the NHS 111 service, simply call 111 from your landline or mobile. Calls are free, and they will be happy to assist with your call.
Whilst your GP is happy to chat through your concerns, they do run very busy morning and afternoon clinics, and it may be some time before they can return your call.

The Old School Surgery would like to invite you to join Doctorlink.
We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; Doctorlink is our new online service where you can access advice and appointments on line.
Registration is simple and you can register here:
For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through Doctorlink.
The symptom checker will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem.
The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self care.
If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required, you simply click on the request appointment link.
Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).
The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.
You can even download the App:
Google Play for Android
