COVID-19: How we are working now

Many of the special arrangements required by Covid are no longer necessary and, in September 2021, one in six of our entire practice population had a face to face appointment at the practice.  We are, of course, retaining those things that have worked well such as telephone and online consulting, where that is appropriate and desirable.  There is a new portacabin in the patio area to see 'hot' patients: this will minimise the risks of spreading infection.   You will appreciate that community rates of infection are still high and we would encourage our patients to be fully vaccinated for Covid and to take up the invitation of a flu vaccination if you are eligible.

Please note that eConsult is available on weekdays from 6.30 in the morning until 6.30 in the evening.  The 111 out of hours service is available when the practice  is closed.  As of November 2021, eConsult advise that 16 and 17-year olds can access any of the previously 18+ adult templates.  They will no longer need a parent or guardian to submit templates on their behalf via the paediatric content.  This also means that young parents are able to consult on behalf of their child using eConsult.


Welcome to The Chineham Medical Practice

Our aim is to provide an exceptional standard of patient care in an efficient manner within an environment which is welcoming to patients and supports the development of staff.

We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.

Serving You

Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. To ensure you see the right clinician our receptionists need to know if you have an urgent medical problem or an ongoing condition.  Please help us by answering their questions and anything you say will be treated confidentially.

Technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.

Partners in Care

Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.

Primary Care Network (PCN)

The practice is part of the Whitewater Loddon Primary Care Network, together with Clift Surgery and Whitewater Health.  The Primary Care Network has recruited a range of additional staff, such as physiotherapists, clinical pharmacists and community connectors to improve the support available to patients.
