GP surgeries and health centres participate in regular staff training. Staff training is valued by all staff and is a benefit to patient care. Where possible we do not close the practice for staff training but there are occasions when this is needed. The practice partakes in monthly Bracknell and Ascot CCG clinical training (BASE) whereby we close at 12.30pm and will reopen the next working day. We sometimes close at lunchtimes for in house staff training. Should you contact the surgery when we are closed, our answerphone will guide you to contact the out of hours’ service or call back when we reopen. Please see our website or posters in the surgery for any additional planned closures.
If you are unwell and require urgent clinical advice during this time then please call the out of hours’ service on 03000 24 0005.
Please note when the surgery is shut after 18:30 and at weekends you should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation. For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
