Welcome to Winyates Health Centre Online
High appointment demand
We are currently experiencing very high demand on our appointments system resulting in a wait of approximately 4 weeks for a routine appointment. Obviously we always hold back a number of appointments for patients who require an emergency, same day appointment.
As we can only book 4 weeks in advance, sometimes this means that we run out of appointments completely. When this happens, we have no alternative but to ask patients to call back once the books have been extended on a Friday afternoon. These appointments are also available to book online. If you require access to our online services, please ask at reception.
We know this is not an ideal situation and we are trying new strategies to help with this issue but please bear with us at this time. The receptionists will do all they can to help you.
Many thanks for your understanding and co-operation at this time.

We are now making more use of email and texts to contact patients rather than just letters by post. It is therefore vital that patients ensure they keep us up-to-date if they change their mobile number or email address.

Alternatively, you can also let us know using Patient Access (online services) by clicking "Update your details".
We will only use your details to contact you about matters directly relating to your care or to inform you of new services aimed at improving the healthcare you receive from us. No confidential information is ever sent via text or email.
