Welcome along to our Surgery website where we hope you will quickly benefit from a user friendly layout and a wealth of information about our healthcare services.
To all of our Patients - announcement 15th July 2021
We are aware of the planned move to lifting the remaining Covid restrictions in England from the 19th July. Medical settings are a higher risk environment and will need to be subject to more controlled measures than other public facilities. We are acting very cautiously and are maintaining:
PPE for Healthcare Staff
We ask all patients to respect this latest guidance and ask that you continue to wear face coverings when in the Surgery. It is our duty to do all we can to protect both our patients and our staff
Update around Covid-19 Vaccination Programme (13th July 2021)
Following National Guidance, we are bringing forward our FINAL Astra Zeneca SECOND dose Clinic from 12th August to Saturday 24th July. This July Clinic is now LIVE on the National Booking Service. https://www.nhs.uk/.../coro.../book-coronavirus-vaccination/
Please click on the link to read our Newsletter.
Please note - if you are eligible for a Covid Vaccination, please book your appointment through the National Booking System.
Currently due to fluctuating Covid and workload pressures, your prescription may take up to seven working days (EXCLUDING WEEKENDS AND BANK HOLIDAYS). Phone requests cannot be taken. Controlled Drugs cannot be dispensed on Saturdays.
Anyone coming into our Surgery for any reason MUST wear a mouth/nose covering/mask of some sort. It does not need to be a medical mask or anything expensive. Just some kind of covering. This is not just for the patient - this applies to anyone coming in - the Carer, the Parent, the Child - whoever is entering. These are the new rules that we have to abide by. Please support us. Many thanks for your continued understanding and patience. 😷 😷 😷
The exceptions are:
- children under the age of 11,
- people with disabilities and
- those with breathing difficulties
- those who are travelling with someone who relies on lip reading.

Platinum Award again
Ramsbury and Wanborough Surgery has once again been awarded the Platinum Carers Award in recognition of the outstanding services and support provided to Carers. This is a combined award from Wiltshire Investors in Carers and Carers Support Wiltshire. We offer "flexible" appointments for people who are Carers to try to make it easier for you to visit your GP/Nurse.
In addition to our current methods of communication, we have been provided with a new messaging service called Mjog. MJog is a free App for patients allowing quick and easy two-way communications with us at the Surgery. Patients will be able to use the App straight out of the box, providing patients with a convenient way to manage appointments, be alerted about services and receive reminders from us.
It is free to download with no message costs. It’s a simple process to cancel appointments in ‘one click’, provide feedback to or complete patient surveys and NHS campaigns (such as Flu vaccinations, cervical smears and NHS Healthchecks).
MJog gives patients the ability to text back saying “CANCEL” or “DECLINE” for example instead of phoning the Surgery to cancel their appointment or decline a flu vaccination. There is one major difference with this new system – Appointment Confirmation messages will no longer be sent immediately. You will receive a Confirmation Message one week prior to your appointment and then a Reminder message the day before your appointment. If you book your appointment less than one week in advance, you will only receive the Reminder message.
We have been rated as Outstanding by CQC.
