South Reading Surgery is currently open.
Shinfield Health Centre
Shinfield Health Centre is currently open.
The surgery is open on weekdays from 08:00 to 18:30, with extended hours on Tuesday evenings until 20:00, some Friday evenings until 20:45, every other Saturday morning from 08:00 to 13:00, some Sunday mornings from 08:00 to 13:00 and some bank holiday mornings from 08:00 to 13:00.
All extended hours clinics are only held at South Reading Surgery. We provide extended hours in a cluster of surgeries in the area within a 6-mile radius, so if you have a medical condition and wish to be seen by a doctor or nurse, appointments may be offered at one of our neighbouring surgeries, as well as, our own.
Please be sure you know where to attend, when booking an appointment in extended hours. Extended hours are reserved for booked consultations only, in person or by telephone. We do not allow for prescription requests or collection, registration or other enquiries during extended hours.
When we are closed
Urgent Medical Problems
If you need to be seen urgently and there are no appointments available, please speak to a receptionist who will arrange for you to be seen or spoken to as appropriate. However, without an appointment this may mean you have to wait longer to see a doctor.
There is no “drop in” surgery and walking into the Practice will not guarantee you an appointment.
Out of hours (weekends and night cover)
If you have an urgent medical situation outside the Surgery times, please ring NHS 111 Service
- Medical help fast but NOT a 999 emergency
- If you have difficulties communicating or hearing.
