In North West Surrey there will be two GP Extended Access Clinics available in each of our three localities.  These GP Extended Access Clinics will allow patients to access prebooked GP appointments at a local practice. These appointments are available to book via your normal GP practice. 


Patients unable to book an appointment at their normal GP practice will be offered appointments at either Wey Family Practice, West Byfleet Health Centre, Madeira Road, West Byfleet, KT14 6DH or Hillview Medical Centre, 3 Heathside Road, Woking, GU22 7QP where the GP Extended Access Clinics will be held.  Please note these GP Extended Access Clinic appointments cannot be booked online via Patient Access.   


The GP Extended Access Clinics will be available from 27 January to 31 March 2018, providing extra appointments Monday to Friday, 5pm to 8pm and Saturdays 8.30am to 11.30am.


These GP Extended Access Clinics are within local GP practices and the clinician who sees you will have access to your GP records making the appointment just like visiting your own GP practice.


You can also access medical advice by calling NHS111, visiting your local pharmacy, visiting one of our Walk-in-Centres at Ashford Health Centre, London Road, Ashford, TW15 3FE or Woking Community Hospital, Heathside Road Woking, GU22 7HS.


Parents with young children can also download the HANDi App (from Google Play or Appstore), which was developed to provide advice and support to if their children have symptoms of common childhood illnesses and give parents confidence in dealing with minor conditions themselves at home or the most appropriate place to seek support.

Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
