Welcome back to Warmdene Surgery
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
We are ready and waiting to see our patients ...
We recognise our patients may be very apprehensive about coming into surgery and will be worried about Coronavirus or other infectious diseases. Patient outcomes benefit from seeing a GP so we are reintroducing face-to-face appointments at Warmdene surgery and we wish to reassure you that you are safe to come into our surgery.
Staff, patients and visitors are now expected to wear a face mask and to follow social distancing rules when visiting any NHS or healthcare setting.
We have introduced an enhanced cleaning programme and infection control regime. Our clinical, reception and administrative areas conform to the government COVID SECURE guidance, and staff will always aim to respect social distancing requirements. We have a separate facility and isolation area if a patient needs to be seen by a clinician but has possible COVID-19 symptoms. You will see many clinicians and other staff wearing PPE where social distancing may not always be possible.
The most commonly reported symptoms of Covid-19 are now sore throat and runny nose.
Building on the above, all patients with surgery appointments are advised:
- Not to enter the surgery if you have a fever, cough, loss of smell or loss of taste. Instead return home and contact 111.
- Please wear a face covering when in the surgery.
- Please go to the toilet before leaving home.
- Wash hands thoroughly.
- Unless exceptional circumstances please attend the surgery alone.
- Please make sure you bring a mobile phone with you as you may be asked to wait in the car or in the car park prior to your appointment.
- Please do not attend the practice in person if you are awaiting a COVID-19 test result.
Warmdene have introduced a NEW service for minor conditions to help you be seen the same-day via your local Community Pharmacist.
We have introduced a same-day, GP community pharmacist consultation service to help you receive quality care and support for minor health conditions, more quickly by accessing care from your community pharmacist.
This is for minor illnesses such as:
- Athlete's foot
- Allergic reactions
- Bites or stings
- Coughs and colds
- Eye infections
- Mouth ulcers and blisters
- Sore throat
When you contact us regarding a minor condition, where appropriate, and after discussing your condition, our receptionist will offer you the option of having a same-day appointment with your community pharmacist. Note: same-day appointment offered if before 16:00.
Community pharmacists are highly qualified and experienced in providing clinical advice and care (including recommending over the counter treatments) for minor illnesses and conditions. They will offer you a same-day consultation via the phone, or in person, which can be arranged quickly and at a time to suit you.

Please note any digital image submitted as part of an online consultation, will be stored within your clinical notes.
Electronic Repeat Dispensing
Your safety, and your ongoing care and treatment is our priority. As part of the Primary Care response to coronavirus, NHS England has recommended that we put all suitable patients on to electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD).
This means we can send your regular or repeat prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. You can then collect your medication from your pharmacy, or ask them to deliver it to your home.
For more information please click here.
You don’t need to do anything. Your GP will set up eRD for you.
The General Practice Data for Planning & Research will change the way that your information is used. Please click here for full details and how to opt out. For more information click here. Please note the original deadline to opt out by the 1st Sept 2021 has been removed and at present there is no opt out date.
