Ascot Medical Centre and Green Meadows Surgery are reminding local patients that they will both be moving to a modern, fully refurbished building located at the Heatherwood Hospital site, called Brook House in June.

Due to the move, Ascot Medical Centre and Green Meadows Surgery will both be closed to patients on the 21 June. Patients requiring medical care can call 111 and out of hours cover will be provided for both practices on the day – the Out of Hours number is 03000 24 00 05. NHS 111 can make sure you access the most appropriate service for your health concern. If needed, NHS 111 can book you in to a local service, emergency dental services, pharmacy or another more appropriate local service.
Brook House is on the Heatherwood Hospital site. Please note Brook House it is not part of the main hospital site it is a separate building that can be accessed via the new roundabout on Kings Ride which will be well-signposted from all major roads including the A329 and the Heatherwood roundabout.
There is parking, including disabled parking, at Brook House which is free for patients. Patients will need to collect a patient parking permit from the reception desk.
As well as car parking spaces the new facility will also have bike stands for patients.
The new premises at Brook House, Heatherwood Hospital, forms part of the wider Ascot Plan which is to modernise primary and community care for local residents over the coming years and continue to improve on the health outcomes for local people.
Dr Andrew Fanning, Senior Partner at Green Meadows Surgery, said: “We have been really lucky that during the pandemic we have been able to safely continue with the construction work.
“Co-locating the two practices will enable multiple professional teams to work together resulting in better outcomes for our patients. It is essential to reducing patients’ admission to hospital, improving care co-ordination, providing care closer to patients, and increasing self-management with patients and carers.
“It would not be possible to provide this kind of integrated care in the current Ascot primary care premises.”
Dr Edward Williams, Senior Partner at Ascot Medical Centre, said: “I would like to reassure all patients that the two practices are not merging. We will be based at the same premises with Green Meadows Surgery. Patients will still continue to see the GPs. Nurses and other members of the team that they are familiar with.
“Following the changes in guidance from NHS England regarding appointment access, we would like to assure our patients that general practice remains open and continues to provide a range of access types including telephone, online and face to face appointments.
“Face to face appointments will continue to be provided following a brief assessment of your needs. In addition to this, as restrictions ease we are working to increase this face to face capacity in a covid-secure way, whilst retaining the flexibility to offer online and telephone access where these are preferred.
“If you are feeling unwell, where possible, we ask that you complete the online form on our website to tell us about your condition. Alternatively, you can still phone us.
“If you are due to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.”
